This house is so us. I feel so comfortable here. Little things that used to drive me nuts at our old house (like dishes in the sink) seem to fit well with chicness of this house. Not that I’m not keeping it immaculately clean! Just that I feel much more relaxed here – must be […]

I’m definitely living in a dream right now. This day has been so relaxed, so laid back. Excited for many more Saturdays in Cville! Biking downtown is so much easier than I ever imagined! It’s 2.5 miles (what I used to bike to the gym and back everyday) and has bike lanes 75% of the […]

Annnnndddd here’s the living room We debated the placement of the furniture for a while but eventually decided this is the best for conversation and walkability. No TV anymore! We hope to one day get a smallish flat screen to go on top of the fireplace, but not until we have some better cash flow […]
