Some Photos While We Wait

Here’s an understatement: we’ve been pretty busy with work on this crazy house. And with ‘normal’ jobs as well, our nights and weekends aren’t exactly “free” either. On the upside, there has been a lot of progress from where the house began, as a quaint little shed in the woods that needed some major TLC ....more

Corona & Lime Cupcakes
