Bottling Moonlight began as a way to document and share our travels. As our travels have evolved, I’ve been unsure of how I wanted Bottling Moonlight to progress. As a result, I have spent a lot of time on the back end of Bottling Moonlight (migrating it from to a self-hosted wordpress blog and making a number of changes to the administration of the blog) but little time writing for the blog. That is going to change. I am going to continue Bottling Moonlight, but instead of solely writing about travel, I am also going to write about my experiences as I try to stay off the treadmill and bring the beginner’s mind that I cultivated while traveling to life in a home. Okay, that’s a whole lot of clich├ęs in one sentence! Seriously, though, I plan to write about making a home, making more of the things that I need or use, musings on life, and whatever else strikes my fancy.

I hope that you will choose to continue with me on this journey. And if you’d like to receive my shiny new posts via email, please sign up with your email address in the top right corner. Unfortunately, the migration killed my old email list, so please do sign up again if you’ve enjoyed seeing my name pop up in your inbox from time to time.
