But - as was bound to happen - I made friends (and met Robin!) and put down roots here on the West Coast; and now it feels like "home" in a way that my actual hometown simply can't complete with. Sorry, Mom and Dad!!
Speaking of roots? We went to the garden center again today...and after another round of purchases (we couldn't let those "customer appreciation" coupons go to waste, now could we?!) our outdoor space is just about ready for its very own photo shoot!!
I'm not sure yet if I'll be sharing the pics via a blog post or on my newly-revived Instagram account...but of course I'll let you know when it's time for the big reveal!! Right now, though, I hope you'll share how - or if - you've made your own balconies and backyards feel like an extension of home!!
