This is a quiet place for reflection. For travel photos and journaling, thoughts and musings, and the occasional outburst of science fiction and geekery. To learn what leaves at my feet means to me, read the very first post.


I am a tree-hugging, picture-taking, sci-fi reading nerd living at the foot of the Blue Ridge Mountains in Asheville, NC. My little family here consists of my brilliant husband Ethan and our two cats. Interested in how websites were made since I was just a wee thing, I decided to make it my living. I design & develop WordPress websites at my one-woman company, Lydia Roberts Design.


I built this site on WordPress with the Atomic Blocks theme. The new Gutenberg editor for WordPress I’ve found to be quite editor friendly. I also like the Atomic Blocks plugin which allows for the grid of posts you see on the homepage and the plugin WP Featherlight which makes the gallery photos pop up in a nice lightbox.
