Pink Lemon Twist is Westward Bound!

Go West Young Dog! That's right, we have been transferred to Dallas, TX and Finn is celebrating by showing off his new style! We just found out and our house is currently being readied to put on the market, Caleb is getting crazy with the Magic Eraser, Mickael and I are wondering why we have so much junk, Finn is thoroughly confused (he's never been through a move before), and Ramius doesn't care as long we wake him up when it's time to get in the car and go (he's moved four times, he's a pro). This is very exciting for us as it puts us in the same town as Rick, my brother, and his wife Mindy, owner of the original Hanami. It also gets us less than two hours from Mickael's parents and only a day away from my parents. (Caleb has realized that being closer to grandparents really maximizes the opportunities they have for spoiling him.)

What this means for the blog is that blogging will be a bit sporadic for a while, I might change the time of day that I blog, and since the only knitting I'm really doing right now is for the patterns I'm finishing up, you might not be able to see much knitting on the blog. Just bear with us and excuse our mess while we get things straightened out!
Finn wonders if there is bacon in this Dallas place and if he has to wear the hat all the time to get some.

Awesome! We'll have to get together -- don't know if you remember, but Good Girl Purl, NanC (toysaregoodfood.com) and I (skittermagoo.com) met you at MSWF a couple years ago . . .

Congratulations as it sounds like a positive move for you all! Having just finished managing a relocation from Chicago to Memphis singlehanded while my partner started her new postion there, I can emphathize with the work involved..good luck!

Plenty of bacon in Big D - some of us would even say it's a necessity!

And tell him that while he is more than welcome to wear his hat, it is not a requirement!

Best of luck on the move!!

YEAH! I am so excited to have you in Texas! Sounds like you have a lot of family here so the move will be a good one. I hope you like "hot". HAHAHA! Yes, Finn... there is bacon in Dallas - lots of it! (As long as my pups don't eat it all before you get here!)

Congratulations. I understand. Moved almost 3 years ago from California to Arkansas. I couldn't believe how much junk we had.

Congratulations! Nothing like having your family nearby. VA is a gorgeous state but I hear TX is beautiful as well. When is the expected move???

Thank goodness for the web! We can still keep in touch even though you will no longer be on the east coast... don't envy the sorting, packing and moving. Have done it 13 times (was a military "brat"). Good luck, safe travels and so happy to hear you will be closer to family.

Finn really does look ready to move. Hope he does well with the transition. I'm glad it'll be another year and half before we move again. My brother seemed to like Dallas though he was transferred to Austin for his job.

I lived in Texas during my kids' school years. It's a great can-do state filled with the friendliest people. Enjoy!

Good luck on your move. Just don't throw out the baby with the bathwater (your STASH) ... have fun!

Moving to Texas! I am so jealous. If my husband came home and told me we were moving to Texas, the shock alone would kill me. Really, 12 years in Tokyo...what was I thinking.
Wishing you a smooth move.

Finn is so cute! Good luck with the move to Texas. We're doing that too (sort of - ours is temporary which actually adds to the complexity, at least for me), although we are not moving to Dallas.

Texas is great! I can say that, I'm a native. Dallas is where I grew up. It's not my fave city any more, but they have a bunch of knitters there and you can come down and visit us in the Austin Area when you have time. Oh, and we have lots of bacon. Safe Journey here!

Good luck on your move and don't worry about the blog...you will have lots to say when you get there and settled ;)

I think Finn will have no trouble finding bacon in Dallas, but even better he should be able to find lots of beef ;D

Good luck with the transfer! I live in Arlington, west of the D. You'll definitely be able to stock up on the bacon for Finn.

Ahh, so you are coming to Texas! Glad to hear that the move will make you closer to family. You'll be 6 hours from me. We go to Dallas occasionally and maybe some day we can meet IRL. :)

we're actually about 1-1/2 hrs to 2 hrs from Dallas... you might want to hook up with the local fiber lists... I'll email you & send you some lists! :) KidNEwe is in November (I think this weekend... we're missing it, waaahhh, oh well)...
