Here we go!

If you're still here...hello! I've finally made myself sit down, sort through pictures, and complete an entire post! I've worked past the bloggers block, and have several posts in the works. So, without further ado, here's the first post (that is long overdue). 

Please don't hate me for bringing it up, but this winter was something else! We, along with the rest of the country it seems, had so much snow, frigid temperatures, and frighteningly high heating bills. Although it was such a bear, it was truly beautiful. I cannot imagine living somewhere that I can't enjoy all four seasons.

It was beautiful, no denying it, but I am oh so glad that Spring is here in New Hampshire! Only just about two weeks ago did all of the leaves arrive here in central New Hampshire, and everything is really in full bloom now!

Forsythia in bloom a few weeks ago.

Our new house has some beautiful plantings all around it, but I cannot even begin to figure out where to start. I've made a few calls and am attempting to get someone to come and take a look, and possibly give me some direction. I've taken care of some things, but there is really a lot of landscaping to deal with. Hopefully I can share some more of it soon, once it is cleaned up, that is!

This wonderful Spring weather (when it is not raining!), has had us taking a break from our hectic schedules, and enjoying our region. We find ourselves taking drives to several of our surrounding states and New Hampshire, and let's just say that they do not disappoint!

Along the Kancamagus Highway in New Hampshire this weekend.

And just in case you think it's been all fun and games over here....

We've been working extra hard to get the barn cleaned out!

But we made sure to take the time to remember those brave men and women who gave their lives defending our freedom.

Shew! As you can tell, it's been an exhausting few months over here, but I wouldn't trade it for anything. We're living our dream, through the ups and downs, and it has been one of the best decisions we have ever made. But don't worry, I haven't even touched the tip of the iceberg. A lot more to share....

But for now, good night!



  1. oh tim!
    so worth waiting for.
    i love that you started with beautiful pictures of the snowy winter . . . those made the spring bursting forth even more spectacular! . . .
    and ending with those beloveds on the carpet. are they adorable or what!
    kudos to you darling! living the good life. kisses on those tiny black noses.

  2. We have had 2 Cavaliers, and they both rest(ed) in that position. I wonder if it is unique to the breed? We call it 'Superman-ing'. Can't you just see their cape flapping in the air?

  3. "Superman-ing"! I'll have to use that! This is the only type of dog I've ever known to do this. Maybe it's a spaniel thing? But they sure are cute when they do it!


Your kind words are always appreciated! Thanks for taking the time to share your thoughts!
