To change this place was not something I found easy. I can be a homebody to a devoted degree, and had little inclination to renovate a space I considered a home into something altogether unfamiliar.

But then an external push came that necessitated a move, and in that not-so-gentle nudge I found the inspiration to move the furniture around, to find a new perspective for this room. It has been almost five years.

Yes, five whole years come May 1, 2010. Today is the 1,115th day, if my math is correct (it probably isn't).

And so, here it is.

I baked this cake this weekend, to celebrate some birthdays. I was pretty happy with how it turned out, and I think I'm pretty happy with how this all has turned out as well.

I hope you like it here, too. Thank you for stopping by.

And one more thing, since it's too much of a looker not to mention, the cake plate above is from Herriott Grace.
