 In the style of keeping this blog that of a personal one, I'm planning on returning to my original format of blogging.  With all that is going on in this world, I think it'll be lovely to look back on this blog as a memory; seeing each post filled with the thoughts, emotions, & images from a time passed.

Without further adieu, I'd like to introduce you all to my little family & our home, Turburgler Tavern.  Yep, we sure did name it that.

At the end of 2012, Jonathan & I moved into this quaint little home in one of the best towns I've ever been to.  Our neighbors are lovely, we can walk anywhere we need, & even the college is only a bike ride away.  For me, this is perfect.  & as I'm writing this, I'm looking out through the back window of this tiny little 1920's home, into the yard that these photos were taken in.  The window itself could be an artistic view, but to see our yard, our vegetable garden, our fruit trees, well - it's just bliss.

One of my favorite things to do here is to sit out back, maybe grab a beer, maybe water the garden, & just let the dogs play.  Sometimes they can get a bit crazy, & because of the large oak tree shading the entire yard there's not much grass, so it can get a bit dusty - but it's worth it to see how happy they are while playing together.  Just last week Gozer decided to show us that he was part horse, & jumped into the garden to run from Turbo while they were playing.  When he finally came out it was exactly as he had gone in, leaping like a pegasus for flight!  Our dogs can be a bit much, Turbo has a Napoleon complex - Gozer thinks he's a lap dog, but being able to share their joy & pure puppy bliss with Jonathan is one of the best things in the world.

Oh yeah, the name - Turdburgler Tavern.  When we moved in Jonathan just had to name our house.  Partly because he just does that, partly because he wanted someplace to tag himself at when we have people over or whathaveyou.  He suggested Turdburgler something or other, & I said Tavern (he makes a lot of beer, so it's fitting).  Hence, the name.
