Moved over the last boxes from apartment to new home — yay! — plus internet connection is live and working! Plenty to be thankful for, including…

♥ … the delivery of a healthy elephant baby at the Oregon Zoo! Sam and I are zoo members, and we’re so happy for this (300-pound) new addition to the zoo family. 🙂
