Jeff and I are back from our house hunting trip in Nova Scotia. We found a beautiful home! It’s 15 minutes south of Antigonish in the Lochaber area. It’s a Cape Cod style, 3.6 acre, 4 bedroom house on the side of a hill. Lochaber Lake is right across the road giving us an INCREDIBLE view. We move out in a month and are really excited about it – and for getting our stuff out of storage!
Here it is:
Jeff and Lisa are engaged!! We’re also moving to Nova Scotia! Jeff has won a huge job competition for a detachment supervisor position in eastern Nova Scotia (in the village of Sherbrooke – about a 2.5 hour drive north of Halifax). At best guess, we’ll be moving east later this summer. We’ll know more details in the next couple of weeks as the paperwork goes through. Wedding details are still in the preliminary planning stages.
Our beautiful daughter, Hadley Marie Verkley, was born on Tuesday March 20, 2007 at 2:37pm. Weighing in at 8lbs and a tall 21 inches. Thank you to everyone who has send warm wishes. We can’t wait for everyone to meet her! Please feel free to check out http://ajax.verkley.com/hadley for a few photos.

After a full year of writing, I have completed my book titled “From Kerwood to Here, A Life Lived and the Lessons Learned.” After careful consideration I have decided to post it on the Verkley.com website. I was asked “wasn’t your year long efforts worth selling it like all other books? I agree, yet I’m putting it out there so that anyone can read it. All I ask is that you Pass It Forward. By that I mean, you write something; a book, an article or something of value to yourself and then pass it on to others. What ever you decide to do, know that others will benefit from you reading this. So enjoy.
