It's just right.

The old blog got a bit spruced up yesterday.  Fonts have been played with, all the photos now feel like you're in them, and Patrick's asking me when I'm going to start paying Diesel royalties.

It's all still a work-in-progress, of course (I keep finding things with the old background color) but I'm most excited about the link bar. Check out the new About section, links to Pinterest and my Amazon shop (so neat!), as well as a compendium of links to posts about completed projects, tutorials, and recipes. That last one is something I've been meaning to get to for awhile, something to make it easier to see projects past (if you're craving inspiration) and provide links to them all in one tidy little place.

To put it together, I just started from the beginning of the blog and started working forward. Pretty neat, really, to see every meal, project, adventure, and event we've lived go zipping past my browser window. Sort of "It's a Wonderful Life," in a way. Minus the angel.

We've been riding together to work-- miles and miles of rolling hills and pastures (cows! sheep! ducks! goats!), very beautiful this time of year. We don't get home until six or six-thirty, which is an adjustment. The house is lovely, but an adjustment. It has been raining for like ten days straight. But. The truth of the matter is, I don't care if the commute takes three hours each way. I don't care if we never get moved in, or if it rains for another month. Just being here, being with Patrick, stepping out of the car and smelling lilacs and cut grass and cow pasture (yes, even that) is what it's all about.

It's just... right.
