#Reverb11 – Home

{For the month of December a fellow blogger, Melanie, and I are leading  #reverb11 – an online initiative that prompts people to reflect on the past year and look towards the new one.}

December 8. Home: Name one thing you like about where you live.

Our house is fine. It’s a standard 1970’s split-level home. Nothing really to write home (ha) about. When we were house hunting, we saw many like it. But what made it unique and stand out from the others is the yard. I believe the house flyer I picked up said, “Park-like yard.” So we drove around the back of the house, which you can see from the road as there’s no home directly behind us, and fell in love.

All you have to do is click on Garden in my tag cloud to see how many posts on my blog center around or mention our yard. It’s a wonderful place. It’s large enough to house a screened-in patio, a deck (with a green house set in it), a shed, 3 mature trees, and a very large vegetable garden all with room to spare and spread out. We have a creek and a bike path directly behind us and quiet neighbors that make spending time in our yard delightful. For two nature lovers who would rather spend their free time in the woods (whenever possible), it’s ideal. For now.

Our next house will be on acreage in a rural area. Awwwww yeah!

What do you love about your home?

  1. Oh, Annie, your back yard is beau-ti-ful! Do you ever set up your tent and camp in it, I wonder?

    • Thanks, Brittany! You know, we’ve never camped in the yard, but it’s not a bad idea. The fire pit does make it seem a bit like camping, though.

  • About Me

    My mother is an encyclopedia of useless information (sorry, ma, but it's true) - no one can beat her at Trivial Pursuit. As I age, I become more like dear old mom everyday. I routinely tell people about resources, recipes, tips, tricks, or websites I've heard about, tried, live by, etc. until one of my clients urged me to start a blog. So here it is! My perpetual ramblings. I hope you find them useful and amusing. If you don't, you can either keep it to yourself or leave me a well constructed critique.

    I'm a former massage therapist, a freelance journalist, and a web information architect and UX designer. I enjoy yoga, the Bar Method, camping, reading, gardening, and spending time with my friends and loved ones. I live in Colorado.
