A birthday week and more gardening | Weekly Snapshot

Happy Ascension Day! Happy Memorial Day! Happy Africa Day! No matter what you are celebrating this weekend (or not), have fun and stay safe!

The Boy Turned TwoThe little guy turned two this week. He sort of understood that it was a special day and that he was the star of the show. He took a lot of pleasure in all the birthday songs that his family sang to him - he also added some of his own tunes to the mix. Honestly, some days it feels so hard to believe that he is not a baby anymore. With my daughter, I felt the passing of each day and her birthdays appeared to be following the Martian calendar - they felt very far apart. But this guy has blazed through the past two years, I almost feel that I've missed months in between. I'm worried that if I pinch myself and blink twice, I may catch him packing for college. Yikes! 
Happy birthday, little guy! May you continue to have fun breaking apart things - whether that's your take-apart truck or your sister's carefully built Leg…

Moving on...


I'm finally moving out for good from Blacksburg. In fact, as you read this post, I am already on the road. It feels weird to say that, after being here for two years and looking at this place like home. I'm moving to Lynchburg, which is two hours away. I'm pretty excited to move to a new place, and for the first time, I will be in my own apartment - free to do as I wish, short of bugging the neighbors (which I don't do anyways). It's an exciting thought, because I've always been the kind of person who loves to play house. The first couple of days are going to be really hectic, as I move things out of boxes, and buy furniture for my apartment. Sadly, I won't be getting internet until August 23rd. So I'm going to consider this a getaway vacation, just like the one Molly is on, the only difference is that she is in a very scenic place and getting plenty of rest, whereas I will be running around, LOL!

The other news for the week is that I am going to New York next week, since my brother is coming to the US to study. All this means that I will be on a one week blogging break. I planned to have a few posts scheduled but that didn't pan out. So, instead, I'll return back on the 22nd, this time for good! :-)

Hope I don't miss too much while I'm away!

Enjoy the forced blogging break! Have fun moving in, buying furniture, seeing your brother, etc. And NY? So fun! It all sounds hectic, but so exciting

Have fun getting settled into your new place (as I recall the area around Lynchburg is lovely) and with your brother! We'll be looking forward to lots of pics!
Wow, congrats on moving! I'm sure it's a lot of work, but it'll feel good once you're all settled down.

See you when you get back!

I'm sure your move will go well, and enjoy your time with your brother!

Soon I'll be away from my blog for a while, visiting my hometown, and like you I didn't have time to plan any scheduled posts. So you won't miss very much from my blog :-).

I'm finally settled in my new place and if your experience is anything like the one I've had in the past week you wouldn't have time for blogging even if you did have the Internet. Probably best to just take a break from it because I was stressing about not getting posts up! Good luck with your move.
