Through the Seasons

I've been reflecting a lot recently on how our home has looked during the different seasons we've experienced here so far. We've only lived here six months, and we moved in the height of summer, when everything was as lush and green as it could be. Now it's the darkest day of the year and everything is as un-green as possible! I'm excited to see what it looks like in the spring- especially with half the backyard surrounded by lilac trees! As we near the end of 2011, the passage of time marked by the seasons has been on my mind a lot. The half a year (!!) that we've lived here has really flown by.

As of tonight I'm unplugging for the next week as Matt and I head for my hometown to celebrate Christmas with my family. We have a long drive ahead of us tomorrow, with wonderful family, snow, and a log house full of memories waiting at the end of it. 

May you all have a wonderful holiday week, wherever you are and whatever you may or may not be celebrating!

It's neat seeing your home through the seasons.

Merry Christmas and have a great 2012.
