Packing it up

I'm going on leave in two days! I'm so excited! Warm weather, pictures to be taken, real BAGELS, my family, my boyfriend and cute shops and cafes to explore! I can't explain how nice it will be to wake up in the morning and say, "I think I'll go have a coffee and a bagel..." and then hop into the car and actually DO it! That's what I miss the most about living in San Francisco and San Diego... waking up, getting dressed and heading out to the corner coffee shop and knitting there while enjoying a scone. Army posts just aren't charming enough! ;-P lol

On Wednesday I received my very first scrap booking kit from Scrappy Happiness. I finished it yesterday! I really love it. It reminds me of my vintage suitcases.

I managed to tactically acquire Photoshop, and will hopefully have a more personal looking blog design soon. I haven't played with Photoshop or HTML/CSS in such a long time! I'm so rusty. When I was 16 I could make awesome web pages in a day, without the help of anyone. Alas, that was 10 years ago... I can't believe that much time has passed. I'll get the hang of it again!
