This Place Is Home

The keys. They are in our hands and everything is official. This place is home! We met our realtor at the house on Friday evening for the key hand off and celebrated with scrumptious wood fire pizza from a food truck around the corner. I’m officially obsessed with one of the pizzas – white sauce, […]

Hello 2013

Well hello there middle of January! How did we already find ourselves here? Slow start on the 2013 resolutions I suppose. Oops. Regardless, to keep myself accountable, here’s the list. Plan Max a special birthday. I know things between my first and second child will never be equal, but I’m doing my best to make […]

Welcome Home

We haven’t completely given up on our property. But, the truth is, it has been 9 months since our offer was accepted and we still don’t have the needed variance, let alone a building permit.

Montessori Baby Room

Our humble abode has 3 upstairs bedrooms. Dominic, Jemma and I share the master. Our roomie and longtime friend rents one room and the third is an office/guest/craft/play room. That leaves zero space for Miss Jem to grow into. Right now, I’m not too concerned. Our lease is only through summer 2012 so we’ll be […]
