Have you seen the McDonald's commercials about "me time"? I love my "me time"! I can't believe it's the end of July already, where did the summer go? It has been a very busy one for us, lots of traveling, lots of work, lots of progress on the rental properties. The first week in July, Todd, Trevor and I traveled to Georgia to see Monica. We stayed on Tybee Island, it was wonderful. When we got back I was home for one day and then off toWest Des Moines with two of my girlfriends to attend the Creating Keepsakes Convention. We had a blast! Thank you to Kyle for letting us stay at his place. Sooo.... anyway, I have lots of pictures to share and stories to tell but I've been so busy catching up on what seems to pile up when you are having so much fun (laundry, house cleaning, bill paying, office work etc.) I will try to be better at updating my blog!
Hello & welcome to my blog! My name is Laurie and I started this blog in the summer of 2009. It's main purpose at that time was to keep in touch with all of the wonderful people from all across the country who have helped us as we recover from a devastating flood that happened in our community, Cedar Rapids, Iowa in June 2008. Believe it or not we are still working to get through that recovery and this blog has been a great place to share updates on our progress so far. But it has also become a place to share whatever I happen to be thinking about or feeling on any given day. Pictures, stories, recipes, remodeling projects, you just never know what you might find here!
