Also, this beautiful welcome care from Kitty (Oregon Stamper on SCS). I love the colors and the layout here too!!
It was such a treat to get home and have these waiting for me... it helped to cheer me up! Stamping and the kindness of strangers has truly helped me to get through this rough patch in life!! I can't wait until life settles down and I can reciprocate to these two great stampers and become more involved in the forum!!
For now though I have to face th massive project of packing up my apartment!!

I absolutely fell in love with Colorado... the wide open spaces, the hot, dry air, the friendly people. I hadn't seen Liz in 3 years, far too long, and she and Jamie were such great hosts! She drove me around the state showing me Vail, Boulder, Colorado Springs and Denver. We reminisced about our year in Phoenix and shared a margarita or three:) Liz is the kindest, most giving, loving person I know and I am so glad to call her a friend.
I flew from Denver to Baltimore on Friday to spend the weekend with Salvatrice, Jen and the Murphy family. Monica's baby shower was good fun and it was so good to re-connect with friends. I miss those days in DC and the fun I always have with those girls!
I don't know what I would do without Salvatrice and her amazing strength and advice that I so needed right now!! I am always humbled by my friends, here in Boston and all over the country... with them I have not cried in 7 days!!

So, I'm loving all the comments below...there have been some great suggestions that have me drooling to get on the road!! When I was younger, I had a short list of places I needed to see, that if I didn't get there in my lifetime I may not be able to deal with myself.. those places were California, England, Ireland and Australia. I feel incredibly fortunate that I have done my short list and am now working on my long list!
I will choose a random winner on Saturday!!

Tonight I've had this feeling wash over me... I don't know if it's going to Denver, talking with a co-worker about my Doctors Without Borders dream, planning to go see Irish music tomorrow night... I don't know.. but I feel like ME and I don't remember this feeling for a long time.
Life is going to be fine (I hesitate to say that b/c now something disastrous will happen... see,still myself:)
Now I can stamp, stamp, stamp! and pack, move, etc! with no studying hanging over my head!
I am trying to keep myself busy, busy, busy so tomorrow I get my haircut and foiled (haven't had a foil in almost a year, so excited), go see my friend Rita and then go here for some good craic! I don't have anyone to go with me tomorrow night so being a fun, fearless female I'm going to go by myself:) After that I'm headed down the Cape until Monday. Two less nights of sleeping in my oven-like bedroom.
So no stamping until Monday night... Have a great weekend!!

Yesterday I babysat for my sister's kids- 3 boys and a baby girl. I felt all out of whack as I slept over the night before and got up at 7am with them. Me...7am... yeah that's what I said too! Anywho, my sister has some kind of grudge against caffeinated soda so I was flying solo through my morning of babysitting. It went fine though... I love those little people so much! Except when Grace threw up on me and Owen told me I was too bossy!
I love the color combo for this week's color challenge so I am going to try to get to it tonight. I get home at midnight and alot of times I don't feel like stamping b/c my room is usually 5,000 Degrees. 9/1... central A/C!! I actually don't like A/C but the option will be nice.
