Thanks for your patience as well, while I get settled in. I plan to STAY here at Blogger and hopefully I can tame it along the way. As a welcome back gift, I've created an element for you. Unfortunately each time I tried to post the link at yousendit the link they gave me conflicts with Blogger, so please just email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and put Purple Gem Element in the subject line and I will email it straight to you. Also, someone recently asked me for the sheep and I will get that out to you soon as well... If I don't, please remind me?
I am settling in. Yesterday was devoted to unpacking all our goodies. Besides all the essentials we took with us for vacation there were many treasures I picked up at yard sales and our Mom sent us home with a bundle too. I have not unpacked our clothing yet - I want to make sure some of that makes its way to our local thrift. I was getting pretty tired of wearing the same clothes for two months!
I also did a clean sweep of our patio and little garden space. I have created a little romantic space for us to pass away the evenings. I decorated with some candle holders that our sister Michelle gave us.
I look forward to posting and sharing with y'all over the coming months. Missed You!
