At home, I was a busy Mom who lived in a busy neighborhood of North Charleston, SC.
Our house was a nice one, and good sized, but it was modern.
It had a fireplace, but it was so small the only thing you could burn in it was those "dura flame" artificial logs, one at a time. Our yard was tiny. We purchased our first home computer that year.
The United States was not at war with anyone.
I was a Technical Sargent serving in the US Air Force.
My Sweet Husband started looking at Real Estate on the Internet. He found an 1830's Antebellum Plantation House in a national forest that reminded us of a dream from long ago. We came up to look at it, twice, then made an offer. Shortly after our offer was accepted, the house appeared on the real estate sampler page of Country Living Magazine. (Yes, I bought several copies). We were very lucky. If the magazine had chosen this house a month before, they might not have been willing to accept our offer so quickly.

Our plans were put on hold, but not for long. We signed for this wonderful old antebellum before the end of 2001. We figured I could come up on the weekends for the short amount of time I had left.
In January of 2007, I became licensed as a Registered Nurse.
I took one semester off, and started working on my Bachelors.
I got a new digital camera for Christmas in 2007 from my Sweet Husband I started taking pictures again.
A good friend introduced me to photo shop and I discovered digital scrapbooking.
I found a copy of "Artful Blogger" magazine next to the scrapbooking section at Barnes and Noble.
I wrote my first post for this blog on May 18, 2008. (Click here for my first post if you missed it)
I like my new life, but I better get some home work done.
See you later.
p.s. comments are always appriciated!
