I just moved to Chesapeake, VA (military spouse) and am having a hard time of it. My DH had to go to RI for school (just glad it isn't a deployment.) and I really only know 2 people here. If anyone in the area is wanting to get together for tea, thrift store shopping or whatever (I have a 6 year old boy) PM me.
Hanging tough and baking
Sorry I'm not closer. However, check out the Tidewater Cake group (I'm sorry, I just can't remember the exact name of it). They are a group of cakers that get together. Also, check out a place called Party Cakes and Things. The woman, who's name I'll mangle if I try to spell it, is super nice, and you might find some people there. I'm sure many people are in the same boat you're in!
Thanks cake guy!
Hey, and if worse comes to worse, you can always hang out with some of us on Facebook. I'm cabescakes on facebook. Look me up. I try to get on and mingle every once in a while. I am always glad to talk cake or whatever. You can never have to many Facebook buddies! LOL.
There is a cake show in Virginia Beach in October. Lots of great classes. Just google Virginia cake show tidewater. My guess is you will meet LOTS of other military spouses.
I just sent off my entry to the Tidewater Cake Show!!! I am going to enter 4 cakes and have already started on the gumpaste stuff for the wedding one. Never entered a real cake contest so I am REALLY excited!!!!!!
And Cabes... thanks!!!
jules, I am from tidewater VA and I watch all of their discussions here on CC, even though I don't join in. There are many CC members in the area and hopefully they will see this thread.
