Doing What She Loves

Maddie cools down Griffin

My dear friend, Jamie - a fellow PPM (Preschool Posse Mom) - was kind enough to invite Maddie over to her place to help exercise her horses. Maddie has taken riding lessons in the past, but we didn't really pursue her interest here in Virginia (I know, of all places, Virginia should have been THE place!). Anyway, Maddie has been having a ball being in the barn and riding all three of Jamie's beautiful horses.

Here, Jamie has some fun with the charming Thomas:

Jamie not only loves and keeps her three horses, but she also teaches lessons. In the photo below, you can see that Jamie is the only one that Maddie TRULY listens to!

If you would like to see all the photos from this morning (including Josie and new favorite friend, SweetPea!) Just click right HERE. Till next time...

Hangin' with my Homies

Lovely girls night out last night with Jamie, Sharon and Lori. Celebrating Sharon's (cough, cough)nd birthday. Lots and lots of laughs with this group. We shut the place down - though according to Sharon that's not saying much. Apparently we (Jamie, Lori and I) were supposed to supply some eye-candy for the birthday girl...Instead, we took her to one of the best restaurants in town which she so diplomatically described as "The Morgue Restaurant".

You can take the girl out of Pittsburgh, but you can't take the Pittsburgh out of the girl... We love her anyway!!!
Happy Birthday Sharon!!

We're Moving

For those of you on my personal email list, this is old news. While we were in Africa, James accepted a new job. His new position requires that we move from Virginia to Orange County, California. Since our return from our trip, we have been consumed with the business of selling, buying, packing, and organizing for the move. This will be the Fifth home that James and I have had since we have been married.

The photo above is of our new home. We will be official owners, provided all goes as scheduled, in early August. We are downsizing because the price of real estate in CA is still ridiculous.

I have been working with my dear friend, Danielle - the design girl - to create a new blog to document the move and our new lives in California. Many of you might have noticed that Danielle has done the blog design for Buddalicious for well over two years. She is a treasure. If you have a blog and you want a snazzy design, check with Danielle. She has a number of really cool products and services. As soon as the new blog is ready, I will post the address here.
