Big Announcement

I've been wanting to post something about this for a while now, but had to wait for the timing to be right.

Our family is moving from South Carolina to........................Anchorage, Alaska!

WOW!!!!!  How cool is that!?!

Please check out our new blog to keep updated with our little adventure.

Tom and I have talked about Alaska for several years.  I'm so thankful that it looks like we are finally actually getting to go.  We are always up for a new adventure!

Tom and I will be moving with our youngest daughter, Bonnie.  Our son is stationed in California with the Army, but will be leaving in a couple weeks for another tour in Iraq - this time for 12 months.  Our oldest daughter lives on her own here, and will stay here with her life.  Our middle daughter is a sophomore in college and lives on her own here, so she will also stay here with her life also.

I am so excited that I can hardly stand it!  I have a LOT to do before the end of the month!!

We are hoping to travel the last week of this month.  I will be out of touch for about a week when we begin traveling, but please don't forget about me!  I'll resume posting again (with more videos) as soon as we get there and get settled.  In the meantime before we leave, I'll try to post as often as possible.

Doing my Happy Dance,
