East meets West in the Heartland

Since it has been two weeks since I posted, and I wanted to get that last post finished first before moving on to present news...... Nicole and I have finalized our plans for this coming weekend. Nicole will be traveling by plane and I by car.. (oh please let this winter storm that is expected be cleared up before Thursday) to OHIO. We have had this in the planning stages since before Christmas, but just this past two weeks (and hotels in the last 24 hours) finalized plans. We are so excited about this trip.... As we will be meeting with John Wright and his family and Jayne and David Schooler. So guess what?? That means awesome new posts, pictures, and stories to tell...
