It's 4:24am. I am more than merely awake. I am wide awake. What better time to catch up on long neglected blogging.
So much has been happening that I've felt I've been flying by the seat of my pants. Usually that feeling is not welcomed but this time it has been in a very very good way, a way that is so foreign to me in it's goodness as well as in my ability to accept and welcome it.
First, we have finally put down some deep roots here in the land of my dreams. We closed on our new (1906) house over a week ago and move in next week. It's a beautiful home. It has so much of the authenticity I've wanted for a very long time. It has a soul that exists in floor boards that have been walked, nicked, and cleansed for over a hundred years. Yet, it has been lovingly brought up to date with new wiring, plumbing, and heating, as well as many cosmetic and slightly deeper improvements. And, much is left to do which is perfect for me. I want something to mold into my own. But doing it all up front is not in the cards for us. It's a beautiful place to dwell while we all evolve together. Another dream come true.
I started a little blog about the new house for extended family who live out of state. As word spread to friends and even more extended family demand for information and pictures persuaded to make that blog public. I don't know how much will be happening over there, but I thought I'd invite you over for a little looksy. In case you're curious. It's called wood and light.
A few photos from the first house I shot:
