So glad to be back...

I missed you all so much while I was away.
It seems like forever since I have been able to visit with you!
We have begun to settle in to our new "cozy (town home) cottage"...
The actual move was tremendously difficult...whew
 ....but the bruises and sore backs are on the mend 
and we are finally feeling like we have a new place to call home.
It may be smaller (quite a bit!) but it is ours and we have been hard at work to give it our 
own personal touch and feeling of hominess!

Today I will give you a photo tour of the entrance and the front yard.
Tomorrow I will open the red front door and invite you inside...
Let me know what you think so far...
remember...
it is still a work in progress!
But then again...it seems it always is!

See you tomorrow!
