Today is the first anniversary of my Favorite Thing I Have Ever Done: purchasing my home. Having moved from place to place more times than I can remember, I am indescribably relieved to finally have a place where I can put down some serious roots. (And after having spent most of this sunny March afternoon out in the garden, I can say with confidence that the roots are coming along just fine.)

A year has passed and I find myself marveling at the newfound feeling of not having to wonder whether or not I will be in the same place for another season. In honor of the epic year behind us, and the many years and adventures to come, I’d like to share some of my favorite domestic scenes from our first year in our forever home. Here’s to flowers and sunny windows and snowy scenery and foster babies and beautiful sunsets and stacks of books and a house full of love. My Castle, my Fortress of Solitude, my Bliss Station: I hope I get to haunt you forever.

You may or may not have noticed a couple of things around here lately:

1. My apparent absence, and

2. A brief change of layout followed by a return to the tried and true.

It’s true, I haven’t been blogging much this summer. Not because I’ve been absent, but because I haven’t felt much like sharing. Selfish, I know. But sometimes it just feels right to keep things to yourself and enjoy your thoughts and moments in private. Even blogging can be introverted sometimes.

I’ve also been fretting a bit over the format of the blog. After years of my favorite “theme,” as WordPress calls it, I switched to a new layout that I thought would make my photographs stand out more. It did, but at the entire cost of anything resembling an aesthetic type format. I have since realized my foolish ways and made a mad dash back to my good old trusty layout that just seems to fit like an old comfy shoe. In the interest of making an effort to write more (rather than just post pictures), I think it was a wise decision. And since a good relationship inevitably involves compromise, I incorporated a Flickr stream update to the right sidebar, to showcase my photography for those interested.

I’m quite comfortable with the results, and I look forward to being more diligent in updating you on my daily not-so-innermost thoughts and musings.

Happy blogging.
