Last fall, I installed some Dwarf Japanese Barberries in our front yard. I thought they were evergreens, so I began to worry when all of their leaves disappeared during the winter. They just looked like little dead sticks coming out of the ground. As much of a pain as it would have been to dig them back out, I was glad that Pike’s Nursery has a lifetime replacement on all shrubs and trees.
Then, a couple of weeks ago as we were pulling out of the garage, I made Bradley stop because I saw something exciting! Little tiny leaf buds all over every single one of the bushes. Not a one had fallen victim to my limited gardening ability or the weird winter we have had. I am so relieved that I don’t have to dig out and replant all eight of them.

I think Habitual Rearranger fits me well because I am never settled on designs, colors, or placement of items in our home. I drive Bradley crazy sometimes, but I keep figuring out new and better ways of doing things! I am not striving to be profound or an expert on anything in this blog. It is simply a way to keep a record of all of my adventures - home and life - for me to reference and also for my loved ones to follow along.
I am a born and raised Georgia girl. I don't think I would enjoy living anywhere except the south. Bradley and I spent six and a half years in our starter home and are now in our forever home, a 1970s traditional two story brick house. I love getting into all kinds of projects around our house, and I try to document all the dirty details here if for no one else than for me.
