Back to blogging...

Wow, I have really missed this. And I am so surprised its been this long. Lots has been going on in our lives and with our family, but mostly good. We just survived Hurricane Dolly. Jim and I left for a long weekend to Alburqueque, New Mexico (wow, what a place!!!) and imagine to our surprise that a hurricane was within 48 hours of hitting us. The tv broke the news to us (hey we were on vacation,no one watches tv), we shook our shoulders, and we headed on about our business. Steve boarded up the house for us. Thank goodness for grown children. Jim headed to Kingsville to work for the week and I to Casa de Belmont, my favorite little B&B. Ok not really, but the mistress of the house can sure make you feel like you are at one. What did we do for 3 & 1/2 days? We had a hurricane party in Connie's croproom. Her cute and charming niece had come to visit her as well. It was nothing short of FABULOUS!!...If you are interested in what we did visit my new stamping blog snipsofpapershadesofink.blogspot.com I am wanting to keep our everyday life blog separate from my creative one.
Here are a couple pics of Jim and I on our trip to Albuquerque. We redid our vows on top of Sandi Mountain just about sunset one evening and I have to say that after almost 31 years of marriage this was so meaningful to both of us. I still feel very blest to have Jim in my life. The other is a picture of the nailless staircase at one of the Catholic churches in Santa Fe (Loretto). This was especially meaningful as my grandparents stood very much where we did many years ago viewing the same staircase. I sure do miss, but everytime I am in a Catholic church I think of them and reminded of how lucky I was to have them in my life. So enjoy and come back often to visit. If you like crafting join me at my other blog. It should be up and running in the next few days.
