Welcome to My New House.......I mean Home

I've been living in West Virginia for a whole year now and I'm finally beginning to call it "home". For the longest time when planning a trip back to Richmond I would say "I'm going 'home' for a visit."

Little Miss Yorkie is settling into her new home. Her ivy and boxwood topiaries are all neatly trimmed. Learning to garden in a cooler climate zone brings new challenges, but also many new possibilities.

Such as native wildflowers...like these.

And these.

Or a peach orchard.

Apparently, even buffalo (ooops, I mean bison) like peaches.

But, choosing just the right "house" to call "home" proved to be quite difficult. Too many shapes and sizes!

So we settled on a ranch home that needed a serious makeover. This was our kitchen one year ago. That fridge now resides in our garage, and the wall behind was removed to make room for a large island.

Here is a tiny peak at what the kitchen remodel looks like now. It will be a few weeks before I'm ready to reveal the entire project, so be sure to follow my blog (see email form at right) if you'd like to receive notifications of new posts.
