This is my first thyme plant and I'm wondering how it looks to you guys. The bottom leaves have begun yellowing a bit but the top has some nice new growth. I've noticed it's staying somewhat short so far but is also woody and a little leggy.

Does it look normal/good? Any tips for pruning?

Cut the longer shoots off to about 1/2" from the bottom, and either use them fresh or hang them to dry.
It looks okay, not the happiest thyme I've seen, but definitely not in trouble. Hold back on watering a bit--let the soil dry out up to your first knuckle (fingers are a great watering measuring stick!).
