I’m so happy to report on our one year houseiversary we have redoubled our efforts at making our house look more and more like a home. We recently received a beautiful table and chair set from our friends and we bought [...]
This year, my husband and I will be celebrating a new kind of anniversary. One year ago today, we had the great misfortune/fortune of hosting several hundred gallons of water in our apartment. It ruined our furniture and made life pretty difficult for a while, but [...]
Since apparently you are just as likely to get struck by lightening, it’s a good idea to prepare for what you would do if you win the lottery (and while we’re on the subject, don’t hold up metal rods during thunderstorms). I’ve also heard that statistically you are just as likely to win [...]
I have been super jealous/excited having the opportunity to spy my neighbor’s garden over my fence. They are currently trying to sell the house, and I can’t imagine that it could be on the market long with flowers like these growing in the back yard.

I don’t know how late I am to this party but today I discovered this very cool blog called The Burning House – a blog designed to make us think about what we would take with us if our houses caught fire. It’s supposed to help us reflect on what’s really important in life. [...]
Thank you all for voting for the topic of my new house! I would love to tell you about it. This will be the first in a series of posts about my house.
