We left the city to live in the White Mountains of New Hampshire because we felt inundated. Our creative lives were suffering, our happiness was waning, and we craved a connection with the natural world that was missing. This is not to say that living in cities, or suburbs, or anywhere really, isn’t perfect for some. It just wasn’t right for us anymore.
We’ve settled into living rural quickly — we got another dog, acquired some awesome backcountry XC skis, bought a house, and picked up a Jeep Rubicon. (Next step: expedition trailer!) We enjoy documenting our lives and activities online, but we found our various social media channels (Twitter, Facebook, Evernote, Pinterest, etc. etc. etc.) to be an incredibly fragmented way to do it.
So in a nutshell, “Bees in the Library” is a unified place to hold our memories. Since we work as web designers/developers, we have the chance to set the site up to house and display our data exactly as we want. We’ll share content with friends and family on occasion, but mostly, this blog is a searchable shelf full of diaries and picture books.
Oh, and in case you’re wondering why we call it “Bees in the Library”…
