Well, I'm back! Did you miss me? I took almost two weeks! WOW! I truly love my job, however it's so nice to be away for awhile. It is a real push to get ready for "Shop Hop" and to the marathon it is to be here for it. So, it's very nice to just be at home and enjoy life for a little bit. My husband is working at a new job, so I only saw him on the weekends. That was nice as well. Time for just me. We always have a big party for the 4th of July. I had such a good time with my friends and family. Lots of laughs and good fun. We had great food and the fireworks were great this year as well. I LOVE the 4th of July! I spent lots of time just "fiddling" around the house. No real big projects, just tinkering. Recently, I was diagnosed with type two Diabetes, so I have working on getting a little exercise. We got our bikes out and got riding. I really enjoy my bike, and there are lots of great places to ride. The Centennial trail, the waterfront in Everett. We even road all the way around Arlington Airport. The great part of that ride was we conveniently parked real close to Scookum brewery. Something nice a cold to drink! One day, my friend Heather and I went on an adventure to Laconner. This picture was taken at Christienson Nursery. Beautiful place! We had a really fun day. Such a fun time off! It's nice to be back though. Lots of new fabric came in while I was gone. Time to start getting ready for some fun events coming up. So, I will post again real soon. Happy summer!
