The Nursery is Ready!

16 August 2013

Our house is kinda silly.  It’s beautiful, don’t get me wrong, but for all its square footage, it’s really only a two bedroom house.  We have the basement which houses my craft room, vodka room (yep……it’s where I do all the infusions), a general playroom type area and a guest room (legally, however, it can’t […]

As […]

The Truth of the Matter

12 June 2013

There’s something inspiring about a vegetable garden. I can’t quite put my finger on it, but I just always want to SHARE it… Ellie and I spent several hours digging around in the dirt, picking strawberries and carrots and lettuce and peas – and guessing how much longer the blueberries would need. We topped that […]
