Hi Maren - I am so jealous of you living in Kennewick. I was born & raised in Richland but left shortly after graduation (and I'm still a proud Bomber)! I'll be moving back in the next 3 - 4 years!

Congrats on your success!

P.S. I heard there was a new scrapbook store in Kennewick. Email me if you have the info. I'll be in town in two weeks!
