The almost Heidi house

“I long, as every human being, to be at home wherever I find myself.”  ~Maya Angelou
A little glimpse of the home where we now find ourselves
The house itself is a mix between a traditional Swiss cottage and a very modern renovation.  It’s unusual for us, but quite common for the Swiss.  It’s a bit like a mash up between Heidi and IKEA.  I could have done without the IKEA, but I’m looking forward to making it my own for a little while.
The garden is lovely, and has so much potential.  Michael and I are excited to try our hand at planting flowers that won’t be deer fodder.  I won’t miss the deer in NJ, or the non-church words they tended to elicit when we routinely found our plants munched to bits.  You think we would have learned after the “The Great Hosta Debacle” of 2007.  And yet we persisted.  
I can’t wait to get my hands dirty.
