Trying on my new wings!

Well...I have NEWS...big NEWS...are you sitting, because you might want to...because this NEWS is BIG!



GO!  I'm moving to RENO, NV, to work for Jimmy Beans Wool.

I know, I can hardly believe it myself.  Do you know how far Reno is from Hattiesburg? According to Mapquest, 2150 miles.  That's a really really long way and I'm going to have to drive it at least once.

Here's how it happened.

After I came home from the first therapy session after the big bomb dropped just over 2 weeks ago, I said, "I'm free to do anything I want to do.  If I could do anything I wanted to do what would it be?"  I replied, "Work for Jimmy Beans Wool."

SO, I inquired if they were hiring (they were) and I submitted my application and during the past two weeks I've had 2 very candid and wonderful conversations with Bethany and Laura and I can't even begin to tell you how excited I am to be joining this team.

So, my dears.  I'm flying...which is good because you remember that 20 mile high platform I mentioned the other day?  Well, that's the one I stepped off of and I hope my wings are strong because they're going to have to work really hard over the next month to get me where I need to be.

You also remember the beauty that I was looking for in that great big pile of poo?  Well, here's one thing.  It's gorgeous and sparkling and full of color and I cannot wait to get started!


My Imperfect Beauty is finished except for the border which I started working on this morning.  Another lovely for today.
