I have a good reason for being MIA......

Hello my blogging friends!   It has been AGES since I last posted but I have many good reasons.  I don't have any pictures to share with you, no cards made, no smocking completed...but a perfectly good explanation... you see, my wonderful DH and I have just returned from a 33 day trip to Europe! Yes!!  We sailed across the Atlantic on April 6th and being at sea for 10 days arrived at the Azores.  Breathtaking to say the least.  We journeyed from there to Toulon France, Livorno Italy and then Rome.  We continued on the same ship to Sicily,  Corinth, Athens, Ephesus (Turkey), Crete and finally back to Rome.  We flew from Rome to London and found our way to South Hampton and boarded Norwegian Cruise Lines newest ship, Breakaway, on her inaugural  sailing to New York. 
We met wonderful people everywhere we went, on board and off and have a camera jam packed with photos.  Those will take a while to sort and catalogue, but I will have them ready to post soon.
We arrived home to a still not completed remodel which was a huge disappointment, but we're making the adjustment to a house in chaos, and are still basking in the thrill of our extended vacation.  We're looking forward to a very busy summer with friends and family, and who knows, perhaps another cruise in the fall.
Hugs to all,


  1. Oooooh, I'm so green with jealousy. Welcome back, then. 33 days don't seem long when you're having fun. You must have had a blast of a time. Despite all the moving around, hope it gave you the chance to get back to your 100%. I'm looking forward to you sharing some pictures--I'd love to see them.
    Big hugs,

  2. Hi Barb,
    I was beginning to get worried about you!
    What a tremdous holiday you have had!! Would loved to have been a fly on the wall for the journey.
    I am so happy for you.
    Sure hope your house is completed soon......
    Big Hugs, Candy
