Move Update Part 2

In my last move update I told you that we had picked out a home site near Charlottesville, VA where we were planning to build a house.  I'm happy to report that we've made A LOT of progress since then!

Construction started a few weeks ago, and things are moving very quickly.  This picture was taken November 18th after the foundation was poured:

And then my husband and I went to visit the site last Saturday and this is what we saw!

The very next day the framing was complete!  By the end of this week we should have a roof and siding.  I can't believe how quickly everything is moving.  I guess it helps that the weather has been beautiful here in Charlottesville.  Hopefully that continues!

The builder is now estimating that we'll be in the house in mid to late January - ahead of schedule!

It looks like Jaclyn's Cookies will be back and open for business in late Spring 2013!  Hopefully in my next update I'll have some pictures of my kitchen to share :)

Fall cookies

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving and is having fun getting ready for the holidays.  Here are a few new fall packages that I've been working on.  They'll be up on the website ready for Fall 2013 :)

I'm trying to keep all of my gift packages fairly simple to ensure I can do a high volume while keeping the prices low.  There will be a centerpiece cookie in each package which the purchaser can customize with any phrase they'd like.  I went with "thank you" or "thanks" for each of these examples.  All of the gift packages will come in a 7x10 (small) or 10x14 (large) box with a clear windowpane lid.

I think I might be boycotting Christmas cookies this year, so don't be surprised if you don't see any on the blog.  I'm going to take advantage of my time off this season to spend time with family and NOT stress over cookies!
