We are FINALLY Moving!

After almost two years of living in our "temporary" digs, we are FINALLY moving to our home in Coral Gables!!! Hooray!!!! I wish I could say the renovation was complete... we still have a punch list of about six dozen items for the inside of the house alone, and we haven't touched the outside. Ugh... we're talking re-stucco, paint, ripping out the ugly black asphalt driveway, installing pavers, redoing the sprinkler system, remarciting the pool, finishing the covered patio, retiling the pool and patio, and last but not least - landscaping.  But at least we will be IN!!! My Mother (who is truly a Saint - and an expert packer) is en route as we speak to keep my sanity intact help lend a hand.  We'll have our hands full, but I look forward to reconnecting to the Blogosphere next week... hopefully with some pretty pictures!


Enjoy the long weekend!
