An update

Many months have passed. We moved from our home in Charlottesville back to the mountains of Western North Carolina where we met and were married.  I left a wonderful job at the airport behind that allowed me to pursue my dream of traveling the world. I am so grateful for all the places I have seen and someday I will write about each of them. 
Having only lived in apartments, my husband and myself have finally moved into a sweet little bungalow near the city center. The yard is covered in morning glories and after much hard work we have three big garden beds that are filled with much to eat and an old shed in the back has me preparing for doves. 
The home is being built up quite nicely, my grandmother sends me shipments of old lace and family photos to decorate the house with and some late night IKEA runs have proved very helpful in supplying us with furniture that was much needed. 

I'd like to announce the arrival of a new family member, Sir Oliver Winterbottom. A flemish giant rabbit that we adopted from the local animal rescue. He has been such a joy in this house and I can't imagine not having him around. I found myself going through a nesting period of really wanting to take care of something. When I found this giant rabbit it was love at fort sight and he had been living happily here ever since. He has free roam of the house and is 100% litter box trained. The best rabbit a girl could ask for. 

Aside from taking care of Ollie, painting and gardening have been my most loved activites. Just yesterday I planted a sarah Bernhardt peony and about 30 anjelique tulips! I threw out more lupine seeds than you can imagine and carefully positioned the foxglove seeds where I thought they would be most comfortable. I am looking forward to our little bungalow in the spring. 

As motivation from my friend, Maria, I would like to really keep up with the blog and update much more. So hopefully you will be seeing me around very soon.
