15 Years...

It is our 15th Anniversary here at the HobbyHouse.
I think I have the best husband in the world and
am ever thankful for the wonderful life and love we share!
My mother painted this lovely Bride's Box for me as a bridal shower gift and it is one of my favorite treasures. It has a home on my dresser and is filled with wedding goodies... invitations, RSVP cards, the guest book, the bride and groom cake topper, my garter, and the wedding announcement from the newspaper.The box sides are lettered with
"When two fond hearts as one unite, the yoke is easy, the burden light."
I think we live it!
Happy New Year & Happy Hobbies!

A quick note to say...

Merry Christmas!
I'm just filled with things to blog about
but my time is limited due to LIFE!
My last official day of work is December 23rd.
I'm working hard to get everything caught up so my
replacement can step right in for a smooth transition.
My Little Miss is battling 2 ear infections.
My Little Mr. is in a school performance.
There are still some Christmas things to accomplish!
I'll be back after Christmas filled with New Year cheer!
In the meantime:
May God bless you and keep you safe,
and fill your season with comfort and joy!
Merry Christmas!

Hello there...

I'm here, really I am...
It does seem to me like I've been away for such an extended time.
Things here at the hobby house have been... shall we say, "infected." We have had a mutant germ lurking for the last bit knocking each of us down in our own special way. I'll spare you the details, but know there was a general sense of misery and antibiotics have become our new best friends! My aunt kindly delivered a Thanksgiving meal to us and we so appreciated the privilege of eating in our jammies and following the meal with naps.
I have been busy knitting the last few days... A girl must be doing something as Christmas is fast approaching! I have also spent some of my time shopping online in order to avoid the crowds. LL Bean, Etsy, Barnes & Noble, and Life is Good are my current sites of choice.
I'll set you up with some knitting pictures soon!
Happy Hobbies!
