Happy birthday White Verandah

Image: I am blessed  

I cant believe it has been 12 months already since I started this blog. We had just purchased our piece of country turf and were starting to draw up the plans for the new house and thinking about moving, finding a rental , etc... Seems like so so long ago...... I have spent so much time dreaming and fantasizing of building, designing and living the country lifestyle  and now its really happening... As I drive through the hills in the morning to drop the girls at school, the views still take my breath away - I hope I never just get used to those views and take those big luscious green hills for granted..

I started this blog to document the building process as a keepsake but it has blossomed into so much more than I expected. It has been a way to keep distant friends close and also make new friends. Thankyou to everyone that reads and comments on my posts, I look forward to logging in and checking your lovely comments. I cherish the advice I receive and look forward to sharing the rest of the house journey with you in bloggy land.

Thanks again,  Melissa xx
