I’ve moved several times in my life and grew pretty accustomed to the “idea” of it early in my marriage. Steeler Fan’s work required that we move every couple of years as he climbed the ladder. Now that we’re years past all of that, I’ve grown to enjoy being in one place. However, I would be perfectly willing to pick up and go if the right opportunity knocked. Here are four things that would get me packing:
4. Dream job – I don’t even know what it is yet but if someone calls me and tells me they have a once in a lifetime dreamy opportunity, I’m taking it.
3. Retirement – There’s a cute little hut on a tropical beach with my name on it. I’ve been known to tell folks where to find me when I retire. I’ll sell sea shells during the day. At night – - – well …. what goes on at the beach will stay at the beach.
2. Smothering Mothering – Miss A wants to go to college on the other side of the world next year. Okay maybe California is not that far but it’s certainly far enough from Georgia. One of the best fashion design schools in the country is there. I checked. I’ll miss her dearly of course and have decided that if she needs me, I’ll move to the place where the ground shakes sometimes. Let’s cross our fingers and hope that Miss A doesn’t need mommy to move.
1. Dream House – I am a city loving country girl. My dream home is a white farmhouse with black shutters, real wood floors, and wrap around porch with a rickety screen door that slams shut because the spring is always broken. I’m ready for it and would move without hesitation if the call came today that it was ready for me.

A Breakfast Craving
Pictured above is what I want for breakfast this morning. It’s the Spinach & Artichoke Souffle from Panera. Add a hot cup of Honey Ginseng Tea and my day will be off to a great start.
