I love blogging. I love when you guys give me advice, and help me out of a funk, or cheer me on, or share your stories with me. What I love most may be living vicariously through other people. One of my favorite blogs for that is Katy Elliot. She and her husband are fixing up an impossibly old home (250 years? Something that is shit-dog nutz-bag to us Americans, anyway...). I admit that sometimes I don't understand how they can do it, they have to fix EVERYTHING! And have had some poopy disasters along the way, and it is taking a.long.time. But her home and it's history is so poetic and so simply beautiful. Her town is stunning, I love when she walks around and takes photos of her hood. This morning I was especially taken away by her beautiful photos of the snow.
As a child of imigrants who stuck with their language and culture (thankfully), American history is so fascinating to me. I also grew up in the Suburbs of Atlanta, a city with very few old buildings, and a penchant for tearing down the ones they do have. I want to be like Katy, but I am not, so I love pretending to be like her! HA
