so that was 2013!

It has been adventure-filled year…

In summer we moved into to our first house with what seemed like an endless list of projects. Our plans will consume much of the next couple of years, as we begin to make this house ours.

We've acquired a garden and with it a burgeoning love of gardening, exploring this new space in all weathers and through the seasons. We've savoured the warmth of the sunshine, seen it transformed by frost and harvested apples from our very own tree. I relished the opportunity to bring the outdoors in, making a garlandposy and wreath.

We revelled in the most amazing, balmy summer. We spent weekends at the Dorset coast, camping beneath the stars. We walked in the late afternoon sunshine to Dancing Ledge, descending to the most extraordinary tidal rock pool. We spent a glorious summer fortnight in Cornwall. The days merged into one as we soaked up the sun's rays and explored Kynance CoveSt IvesTrevoneGodrevy, and the Helford River.

I am so looking forward to seeing what this new year brings!
