Evolution

When I sat down at my computer in January 2008, named and created this blog, and started to type my first post semi-anonymously I had no idea I'd be where I am now, or that I'd even still be interested in my little place in the interweb. Now, nearly 4 years later, I look back at the evolution of this outlet and realize what a journey it has been. This blog has been there through the early stages of my relationship with my now husband. It was there for the adoption of my furry companion. It's been there for 2 lay offs, a stint of nannying, and 3 jobs. It's been there for my engagement, wedding planning, and 1st year as a newlywed. It's been there for our travels and little sidebar adventures. It's been there for the ups and downs, the good & bad.

I've gained some wonderful friends along the way from around the world that I would never have had the opportunity to meet otherwise. I've learned all about fabulous spaces and places I'd never have known about if it weren't for the blogging community. (I even picked the cottages we stayed in on our honeymoon on a blogger recommendation!) I am thankful for this little place to express myself through written word and thought. I've enjoyed sharing my life with you & gaining a little insight into how others live theirs. I've gained quite a few readers along the way and I am thankful for you each and every day. I smile each and every time I see a comment come through. I'm not sure I would still be here if it weren't for you.

I've decided to evolve Barefoot in the Park once again and incorporate it into my new interior design business, Kate Nisbet Designs. With a fresh new design thanks to the very talented Jenna at QA Designs I cannot wait to start 2012 off with a bang. For my longtime readers, you'll still see the same content with snippets from my daily life, but will see a heavy dose of interior design tips, tricks, ideas, and inspiration thrown in. To my new readers, welcome! I'm glad you're here. I'd love it if you'd click my fancy new buttons at the top and follow me on twitter, pinterest, facebook, and even on this blog. {If you're reading in google reader, be sure to click and take a look at the new design!} I'm always available for questions or comments, I'm just an email away.

Thank you for all your love, support, cheer-leading, and encouragement!
