It has been over a YEAR since I have blogged, so I have a ton of catching up to do. As the title suggests, there are some big changes in our life, and thus in the blog as well. Dustin and I had a whirlwind 2013, which included moving from North Carolina back home to the suburbs of Atlanta, Georgia. We both got wonderful jobs here in the Peach State, and Dustin is going back to school at Georgia State using his GI Bill benefits. We bought a lovely house in November, and have been busy working on lots of home improvement projects to go from "house" to 'home".

To reflect all the changes in our personal life, I have changed the name and address of the blog from "Colwells in Carolina" to "Catching up with the Colwells". You can find all new posts at

 One of my New Years' Resolutions is to become much better at updating the blog with tidbits about our lives for family, friends, and fellow bloggers to stay in the loop. I hope that you and your family have a wonderfully Happy New Year!!

Here's a little recap of our year in pictures. Here's to hoping 2014 is just as amazing as 2013 was.

Send the Troops a Free Card

There is no time like Veterans Day to show our troops just how much we appreciate them. Luckily, Shutterfly is making this free and easy for you!

Shutterfly is thanking veterans by allowing you to send a free card to troops overseas during this holiday season. I know that my husband appreciated every piece of mail he received, since it often bummed him out to be missing holiday gatherings with family.

So back to Shutterfly's initiative. The mission is simple - to send a thank you card to every American hero. Just select a card from four different designs, add a personal message, and click send. Shutterfly will print and ship your card at no cost to you.

Please create a card for our troops, and if you can, share with your Facebook friends to spread the word. The cards are available on Shutterfly's Facebook page. Follow the link below to get started. it took me less than 2 minutes to make mine!

Thank you for thanking our Veterans.
