When I was a teenager we came quite close, or so I'd hoped, to moving to New Zealand. My father was interested in a teaching position there, but in the end, decided not to uproot his family to move so very far away. Still, I've always had a love for New Zealand and her people.
And when I began blogging, one of my favorite bloggers was Lou, from The Quiet Life. She hasn't blogged much in the past few months, so, especially, today, I'm worried about her and her son.
New Zealand's Christchurch suffered it's second major quake in the last five months, killing 65 people with hundreds more missing.
Keep them in your thoughts.
And, Lou, I hope you're okay.
