Two Story Cottage

I have an affinity for catalogs  but my first loves are my college sweetheart, and the two little people that we call ours.  A designer wannabe, I lack expertise but am not afraid to think outside the box.  I’ve had a lot of practice as we are on residence number four in almost a decade of marriage.  We’ve climbed the property ladder one house at a time and have finally left cookie cutter behind.  Our new place is dream home material so we are hoping to put down roots.
