Hello Utah!

Let me sweep the cobwebs out of the corners of this place. 

I am excited to fill you in on the happenings over the last month. If you've been following along, you already know that Mr. B took a new job in Utah. Indeed, i'm writing from our new home in beautiful Eden, Ut. 

Since I have acquired quite the number of images over the past few weeks I thought that I would break up the posts. This posts documents some of the happenings before our departure. 

We got Poppy and iPad so he can Face Time... look at him go! 

 My sister is teaching him a few iPad tips.

Mom hosted a going away party, Copper partied the night away.

This was actually from several weeks ago, I just thought it would be great to include. Congratulations to Taylor & Jonathan!

My cousin, Aileen, came in for the walk too!

Breakfast with Pop afterwards. 

A visit with Michael wraps up the goodbye visits.

BIG NEWS- Bundle Up Because It's About To Get Cold

I mentioned in yesterday's post that Mr. B and I decided to cut our vacation short because of a surprise... so here it is: 


Mr. B took a new job in Utah and we are packing our bags and moving very soon. (Don't worry, there will be plenty of room for my sewing area wherever we go.. it was a stipulation of the move.)
I mean, it's only a 5 hour flight, or 32 hour drive-- It's not that far right?


He has to report for work before the end of October so we have been busy making arrangements and getting our life in order before the move. 

While the news is super exciting it's also scary, happy, sad and every other emotion all at the same time. We both are looking forward to this new adventure and chapter in our lives. Oh and I can't wait for visitors. 

Until then it will be Face Time for me. I know that the move will be super hard to leave my family, friends and of course Copper. We'll make it through. 


I borrowed this image from the internet. It is of a town, Ogden, UT,  that will be nearby.  :-)

Breakfast with the Rushmore's

Last week, Mr. B and I got to take a 6 day road trip adventure. I never thought that I would enjoy road trips until we started taking them. Since we have been together, we have taken several but this was out most expansive adventure. As you will see in the images below, we certainly crammed a lot of fun into just a few days.

Day 1- Home to Lexington, KY







Day 2: Lexington, KY to St. Louis, MO to Des Moines, IA









Day 3: Des Moines, IA to Sioux Falls, SD to Rapid City SD













Day 4: Rapid City, SD


















Day 5 & 6: Rapid City, SD to Home!

We had initially intended to do more exploring and adding in a few additional stops but we had a surprise twist along the way and high tailed it home. Stay tuned for an update on our Surprise Twist later this week. :-)
