Home Sweet Home ~ Again

I think I'm starting to get used to this military moving thing. While I got somewhat misty eyed, I didn't shed a tear with this last move. I'm such a cry baby so it's a big step for me.
As I've mentioned before, we are really down sizing. Yes, I'm a hoarder & a junk admirer & a saver/recycler, but alas I don't have any more good reasons to tell Rick why I should continue to haul all this crap around with us. Or worse yet, pay for additional storage. So purge away we must. Take a look at this. This is my soon, or not so soon, to be craft room. Right now it's the storage unit. I actually had to leave while the movers were unpacking the truck with our crates. I was a tad stressed out that everything would actually fit in our little abode. (The lovely photo to the left is my"craft room" which is more our storage room at the moment)

Charlottesville is such a lovely town. I'm already in love with it & dreading moving away in a year or so. Every Friday the downtown has free music & many vendors & entertainers in the streets. I LOVE the downtown. It's a pedestrian mall with lots of cute local stores & boutiques. I got a little find I couldn't resist. It's more than I normally spend on vintage jewelry, but it's a cross-stitched pin & it shows definite wear. I love that it's already had a life. I'm definitly keeping this one for me. There was free music at the ampitheater, which we enjoyed. There's a good mix of people, definitly family friendly. We ate at an outside bistro. I'm in HEAVEN.

I'm got that itch to MOVE! You know that's what the military life does to you ~ however, with hubby retiring - not sure if we are moving ever again.
Have a fabulous week.
