Ahhhh life is just so good right now! It has been busy, but it has been also filled with many blessings. As of last week I officially put 200,000 miles on my Prius and have drove through the state of Ohio, in it's entirety a total of 8 times since Thanksgiving! 

But all of this driving was not in vein, I had to drive to Indiana last week to officially accept my job offer as a Territory Manager for Ecolab! It just felt so good after working so hard to earn my degree to sign a paper that more than doubled my annual salary. Now the next step of the journey is to pack up our house and move on out to Fort Wayne, IN to officially begin the next chapter. I start my new job next week, but won't be leaving Happy Valley until the 25th. Lots of emotions since I have been living in this area now for 28 years. But, mostly I am full of excitement! 

I have also been working hard the past few weeks to re-establish my blog, rekindle some old flames with my fellow foodies, and update Happy Valley Chow. Be sure to check out the updated "About Me" page (Assuming you want to better know the man behind the curtain) and definitely check out my new "Store" that has a few different pages of products and cookbooks that I use on a regular basis. Thanks again everybody for being such great supporters and always stopping by to say hello. You guys are awesome and I hope you keep coming back to visit!
