So where in the world have I been since closing on my new house? On a cruise, of course, because why would I do anything in a sensible manner? After closing on the house, I moved out of storage and then had a birthday and on that day I took off on a seven-day cruise with my youngest niece. Together we had a wonderful mix of fun, relaxation, discovery, adventure and laughter. It was the perfect vacation. And now that I'm back, the moving has begun. Bit by bit, box by box.
