Hello Again

Hey Friends,

Sorry it's been so long since I last posted.  Sometimes I just don't know what to say so I don't say anything at all (plus I had a baby...).  I'm new to this whole "blog" thing so I'm still trying to find my voice here.  Let's just do a little reintroduction:

First, let's talk about my peeps!  I have a wonderful (and might I say, very handsome) husband and two kiddos (3 year old and a newborn).  My honey gets to work from home regularly because he does a lot of writing and editing for his job.  We live on a beeeautiful acreage with old oak trees, a creek and tall grass but it came with an old, run down house that the sellers had to literally call the wrecking crew back and cancel it's demolition when we bought it.  That was more years ago than I would like to admit and we're still working on it.  So, we're night and weekend DIY'ers.  We frame, wire, plumb, tile, paint, pour concrete, refinish wood, drywall (not very well though...), install shingles, windows, doors, trim and everything in between.  And by "we" I mean my husband, mostly.  I mean we've done a lot of it together but he does most of it.  We used to do more of it together but since having kids I usually do the kid watching thing while he does the house thing.  So, I might throw some house project pictures and posts onto this blog since there's one always going on.  We just struggle to get them all the way finished.  We're the 90% done kind of DIY-ers. That last 10% is really hard to finish...  

Bathroom Remodel

Our current projects are installing a bathroom in our basement (see that lovely noir travertine in the photo above!!) and putting fiber cement siding on before the winter hits.  We've done the siding in stages, so most of the house is already done but we have one side left and that's what we're hoping to get done this fall.  


What else???  We enjoy being outside and gardening/hobby farming.  We have bees and chickens and a siberian husky.  We also enjoy running and hiking, coffee, not having a TV, reading, and spending time with our families but probably the most important thing about me/us is Jesus Christ.  He is the Center of our world and His Word is filter through which we look at all things.  

I also enjoy decorating.  And hosting people.  And planning parties.  I used to work in catering and did that kinda stuff a lot.  Basically I'm a sucker for pinterest and all it's visual eye candy but can't actually live up to it all :)

I guess that's enough of an introduction for today.  I hope you'll come back and see us again.
