Moving to Facebook

I have been guilty of not posting on this blog like I used to... Sorry! It appears like me, a lot of people are just using Facebook and I have to say I spend a ton of time there as well since many of the blogs I follow have moved there and I am now going to follow suit. It is so much faster and easier to navigate and post pictures! I belong to a lot of groups that also share my interes. You will find me in the group: Primitive and Colonial Style Decorating.

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone


Small Town Living

 I've always wanted to live in the country although I thought it would be Indiana Amish country! But I have decided to move west to a small town named Elburn (5,600 pop). In comparison Batavia is 26,500. Elburn maybe small but it's big on charm. The center of town is the older historic section and the outer edge is newly built homes and lots of farmland. Its only about 10-12 miles further west than Batavia so I still will be close to my son and daughter in law, work, friends and all my favorite shops! Another new adventure, wish me luck!
