Journaling & a Giveaway

We finally got some great news today…we got the official assignment for Richie’s transfer, he’ll be taking over a non-productive store Fort Walton Beach, Florida!!! So we can live there or Destin, Florida which is basically joined to Fort Walton Beach. Yay!, now I can finally look for a house and start packing and planning.

Not to mention all those dreams that have been swimming around in my head…dreams of sun and sand and surf and delicious salt air filling my nostrils on a daily basis.

Ahhhh…I’m so excited!!

Before we got the news this morning, I had completed an art journal spread last night. It’s on a background that I did ages ago but it didn’t draw me in until late into the night last night and then I couldn’t make myself NOT do it.


I did this background and inked in the tree months ago…I’m glad it called out to me last night. It’s all over the place but that’s how I was feeling so it fits. *smile*

Also, in my rush through the bookstore last week, I picked up the latest issue of Somerset Life magazine. I like it okay but it isn’t the one that I meant to get, Somerset Apprentice. So, my haste is someone else’s gain.

Leave a comment on this post and tell me something good…that’s all you have to say, just something good…and I will draw a name from the commenters on Thursday evening and whoever wins, I’ll send you this great issue of Somerset Life for your enjoyment.


I’m looking forward to it.

So, what do you have to tell me that’s good?

Peace & Love,


  1. Barb, that is so exciting and wonderful! I'm jealous of your beach house already.

    Something good: 5 weeks until graduation! Found a new salad recipe that is divine. and.... today after a presentation, I completely pretended like I had no other school work to do!

  2. Ps. I know I have been the best visitor lately and even when I have been by I've been rushed and distracted.
    But the new header = adorable!!!

  3. WOW! I am so excited for you guys. So now you can be happy happy for awhile. Yippee!! I see an old worn out wooden sign in the sand in the weeds pointing the way to the beach! Yeaaa!

  4. I'm excited for you and your upcoming move! I know I'm looking forward to more sun. (It's the rainy part of spring right now in MI. UGH!)

    Good: I'm almost over my cold. (LOL) No really, I'm so excited my hubs and I just refinanced our house. And we're going to do our backyard this spring! Double cheers!!!

  5. You will LOVE living in Florida! I live in the West Palm Beach area, having moved from NJ almost 21 years ago. Nothing beats the weather, first of all. The sky is blue just about all the time, lush greenery abounds and there are beautiful, colorful flowers year-round. There is the rainy season during the summer so it will be a bit of an adjustment to hibernate in the summer, but you will have a good eight to nine months of glorious weather. And did I say the beach is tranquil beauty that soothes your soul 365 days a year? You will LOVE it!!!

  6. Soon your toes are going to be in the sand :) That's a good thought right? I'm so jealous! I hope you have an easy move..and love it there!

  7. I'm so happy for you and the new beginnings you have before you! Good Luck!

    I'm happy about the launch of the premiere edition of Letters & Journals scheduled for later this year...finally!
