back and forth

I just returned from 4 days in Pittsburgh for the finest wedding I have ever attended. Jeremy's sister hitched up with a fabulous boy from Detroit and together they threw the best wedding bash I will ever be a part of! It was beautiful and fun and everything a wedding should be. Congratulations Jamie and Cormac!

So, I apologize for the lag in email response (and blog updates). Not only was I busy with wedding events, we stayed in our new house which does not yet have internet. It does not have a lot of anything. It has a working bathroom. Jeremy has been there for the last week working on the demolition..gutting everything. When someone at the wedding asked me if the house was livable, Jeremy's dad guffawed and said, "It WAS livable until Jeremy got a hold of it!" It's true. We will be moving into a shell. But, anyone who knows Jeremy, knows it will not be that way for long.

Great news on the Moop front! We finally have a space to move the business to--whew! It is a beautiful store front in a great part of Pittsburgh. Jeremy has stayed an extra week to get the space ready for us (while I am in MA sewing he will be in Pgh replacing the floor...water damage left a hill in the middle of the floor...). But, we got a great deal and it means we will have minimal down time from production. Also exciting is the addition of a Moop retail store! It will not happen right away as we need to get our footing in our new city, but we're looking forward to having our studio open to the public and becoming a part of the Pittsburgh community. Exciting times ahead!

The move is very very near, just 14 days away and the anticipation is killing me!
