Java With Jo

Wow, has life been exciting for me!  I realized that I haven't posted a Java With Jo excerpt for quite some time, so obviously it is time to share some news that has been happening in my life.  I'm super excited to announce the engagement of my son to the beautiful young lady that he has been dating for the last 6 years!  They started dating during their senior year of high school and plan on getting married in June 2012. 

I thought this would be a nice family picture to share since it will include our new addition to the family!  Kim and Ryan (the new engaged couple) are on the far left, and then continuing from the left are Bill, myself, and Vicki.  We took this picture last summer when we went out to celebrate our 24th anniversary at the original Famous Dave's in Hayward, Wisconsin. 

I've been seriously considering changing the name of my blog over the last few months.  The name that  seems to ring true to me is Bookin' Along With Java Jo but I would love to hear what your thoughts are.  Do you have any ideas or suggestions, or what do you think of the name that I came up with.  I really am not a very creative person so any help would be greatly appreciated!

I'm also excited to share that my daughter has now started a blog to share her thoughts and feelings about her Christianity and also her craft projects.  The name of her blog is Vintage Fall so if you feel inclined, head on over to welcome her to this great community of blogging!

I love that family pic.

As for the blog name, I think what you suggested fits great, because then you can incorporate more personal stuff that's non-book related. I know it's hard for us book lovers to admit but we DO have other interests as well :)
