... and we're off

This morning we stood and watched our giant moving pods embark on their journey from South Florida to New Hampshire. It was pretty crazy to see our entire company being hoisted up in the air and dropped on a flat bed truck, but hey... it's got to get there somehow! Bon voyage printers and paper! We'll see you in a week.

Meanwhile, Pierre decided to put on one last show for us. We hope the new residents will love him just as much as we have...

So we'll be spending a lot time over the next 4-5 days traveling up the East Coast. Anyone have any suggestions of unique or fun things to do on or near 95 North? Good dog friendly bed and breakfasts in the Carolina's? Virginia? Anyone?

I Don't Want To Pack Anymore...

The posting has been really light recently because our nights and weekends have been filled with activities such as:

- cleaning out our attic which is currently 100 degrees during the day
(did I mention we're moving North?)
- packing up hundreds of pounds of paper
- updating page after page after page after page of the website with sale merchandise that we can't fit into our moving truck

Will the fun never end?

I knew that this move was going to be tough. It's wedding season and we're basically taking a 1,500 mile road trip up the East Coast complete with our 2 dogs and a trailer full of printers. The thing is, every time I think of our new print shop in our 120 year old barn I get a gigantic smile on my face and I know that this will all be worth it.

Today we hit the 2 week mark, and I did manage to do something I thought was fun.... design our moving announcements. The only thing Dade insisted on was using a bee. He likes that bee image (from our "In the Garden" invitations), and who am I to deny him stationery he likes? Here they are...
