Have I mentioned

that two more of my pictures have been chosen to be featured in Schmap travel guides.
this one made it into the Key West edition....
kw 09
and this one made into the Barcelona edition.
la sagrada familia, barcelona

Have I also mentioned that we made it safely to mom's and the unpacking is 95 per cent finished. Another, thing to be happy about. Which is great considering that we just said goodbye to military man for the summer. He'll be deployed soon and the probability of seeing him before he goes are very slim. It was a tearful and sad good-bye but we are keeping our fingers crossed that we can see him one more time before he goes. We've said one too many goodbyes, lately. I'm feeling numb.

In the meantime, we're finding things to do in my beautiful beachy hometown. If I haven't mentioned where we're living then maybe you can guess where we are after I post some pictures this week. 

Hummmm, I'm feeling like a giveaway. Stay tuned.


  1. That's wonderful :) Hooray!


  2. exciting about the pics! love the first one, all the color and oddities. glad to hear your move went ok. will keep you and Sarge in our thoughts and prayers and hopes that the time apart will pass quick.

  3. I will do everything in my power to see you guys at least one more time. Yesterday's drive was the saddest time I had in a very long time. I could not stop thinking about you guys.
