Hello Again, Hello

Did I mention I went to the Neil Diamond concert this summer? Those are some Neil Diamond lyrics up there in the title, in case you don't know. In case you're not into septuagenarian rock stars.

Anyway, I'm glad to be back! I was gone for a while because we moved, again...and again. Lucky numbers 13 and 14. My husband took a different job in a different city, so we sold our condo, moved into temporary housing while we house-hunted in a whole new area, and eventually bought a house. We moved in during Thanksgiving week. It was hard to give up on my little bloggy Lisa Loves Logan, but I'm thinking of starting one up about my new area, Salt Lake City (and Davis Country suburbs).

I hoped to get going on A Farewell To Can't again at the start of the new year, but I'm a few weeks behind. I have been flossing, waking up bright and early to exercise (turns out the secret to waking up early is getting ready for bed at 9 p.m. and turning the lights out at 10 p.m. - which is haaaaaard to do!), and eating whole I'd say the new year is going pretty well. I'm excited to add daily writing back into my routine. I've missed it!

I haven't been up to much DIY yet in our new house, besides using my clothing steamer to remove a wallpaper border in the open loft area. I've painted a number of test swatches around the house. In other words, things are looking great!

The other day I was looking at pics of our old house and my five-year-old son said, "I miss that house. It was...well...pretty." He's pretty cute. I miss it too. I added all the before and afters from that house to the Home Tour link above. It's going to take a lot of work to get this new house where I want it. I think I'm up for the challenge!
