Meet the Homeowners
I’m Jenny, and this is my husband Dave. We’ve been homeowners for over 25 years, first in three other homes, and now here in this new-to-us old home in Baltimore, MD. We raised our two kids though the early years of homeownership, and now find ourselves in an empty next phase of life. We’ve learned so much about homeownership over the years from our family and friends and neighbors, from TV, from books and magazines, and the internet. Yet I’m still learning new things every single day about how to care for a suburban yard, garden and home. So I figure I would share our adventures as we settle into our new-to-us home, so new gardeners or new homeowners out there can follow along and learn as we go.
We’re gonna have a lot of fun here, I think, caring for this old home and the property around it. We’re going to be doing lots of projects, improvements, changes, and updates to this old home and garden. Along the way, I’ll share my tips and tricks, show you how I do things, and maybe give you some ideas that you can do in your own home and garden. I’m looking forward to making friends, and getting to know you.
One note of warning – it’s not going to be “picture perfect” around here. So many blogs show only the beautiful finished products, the “no weed” version of their gardens, the perfectly photographed views of their artfully arranged homes. No, not here. Here we’re going to show it like it is, and it’s not always going to be magazine-worthy. It’s going to be real, and sometimes pretty but sometimes messy. I hope you’ll feel comfortable visiting here, and I hope you’ll share your ideas on solving our challenges with us. I hope you’ll feel welcome and ready to relax amongst friends.
I’m so glad you visited – I hope you’ll stay and take a look around, and when you’re done, I hope you’ll come back again soon!
