|Home Sweet Home!|
First the weather - SUNSHINE, blue sky and 70's... in March... in WISCONSIN - for real? Yes indeed we won the weather lottery last week.
Okay, now here's your laugh... I dropped the girls off at my mom's for the day so nobody got underfoot. Lucy, my dog sister was so very happy to have Brandi & Bella to play with all day. When I got back from my mom's, I pulled in the driveway and saw this huge van parked and being loaded. My exact thought was "Holy crap, I wonder who else they are moving with us because that's ridiculous." After all, we moved everything except the furniture. So literally all the moving guys were packing and moving was beds, dressers, and other furniture... surely not a whole truck full of this size.
Um, well, these words are tasting quite a bit like peanuts... packing peanuts. Indeed we did fill this truck. The movers are the experts, they knew the space they would need and they nailed it to the inch. Literally, they could not have fit one more thing in the truck. To which I'm laughing because I was the crazy one. I guess I'll just go back to designing because I'm not cut out to be a professional mover.
For those that are local to me, AC Transfer and Storage out of Delavan was WONDERFUL! (262) 728-3311. They took such good care of our belongings, actual moving costs came in under the estimate and they were very personable. I highly recommend them if you're looking to move... because after all, your friends and family will only work so many times for pizza and beer... then you're left holding the empties! :o)
|Welcome Home - Put on our garage door on moving day!|
So to further enjoy our new home and being in Lake Geneva, we walked downtown for St. Patty's Day. Yes, WALKED!!! It was awesome... no more feeding the meters (and getting $13 tickets for being 1 minute late on getting back to your car.) No more worrying about traffic jams on Sunday afternoons... because now these two feet can get me up close and personal with all the fun Lake Geneva has to offer.

This summer is going to be wonderful in our new home, I can just feel it. I'm very much looking forward to meeting other local business owners and helping to promote the community. I also hope to meet some of our local boutique and art gallery owners and introduce them to Designs by Dawn Marie Artisan Beaded Jewelry!
Thanks so much for all your well wishes throughout the move. We now continue with our regularly scheduled business of creating more custom beaded jewelry one piece at a time!
