Courage To Start
Enjoy The Ride!

The time has come when I have decided to begin the blogging journey with my recent retirement and move to Virginia. We have lived in our present home for 30 plus years and has been the perfect place to raise our 3 children but as everyone knows things change, children grow up and move away and you look at things through different eyes!

The reason for the move from PA to Virginia is to be closer to our children and grandchildren. I don’t have to tell any of you how fast the time seems to go, especially as we get older.

My hope in writing this blog will have you follow along on our journey as we fix up the retirement home we found!

Of course, it wouldn’t be my journey unless I add favorite recipes, baking & a mix of decorating tips and ideas!

The title of this blog sums up how I feel as we approach the fall season. Many of you a possibly facing the courage to start new jobs, new school years for you or your children, and maybe even retirement!

I have included this great image that pretty much sums up this very first blog post of mine!

Thanks for reading,
