Inspirational Blog

And we thought we were cool. There’s an Australian couple who is doing everything we’re doing, but to the nth degree cooler. “There are many reasons why you might start a blog, but documenting the revival of an 18th century neoclassical ruin seems like a pretty damn good reason if you ask me. In 2013,...
Thinning Out the Front Yard

Thinning Out the Front Yard

  Our front yard has not only become a dump for the contractors (see the above pic with remnants of the old roof– which got replaced last November– still in our yard) but it was just so overgrown that it was really starting to bother me.  I don’t mind the contractor stuff because I know...
Bathroom Innards

Bathroom Innards

  Things are happening in the bathroom!  Check out our fancy new insulation!         Below you can see the doorway to the master bedroom has been closed off– no going back now!     The old pipes are totally out and the new pipes are in!     I decided I wanted...
Bathroom Sinks

Bathroom Sinks

For this week’s inspiration post, I’m going to lift the hood and show you what I’ve been dreaming about for the bathroom we’re remodeling:   Is this not drool-worthy??  Houzz is the best resource for finding house inspiration.  I LOVE the yellow and green combo first of all.  But what really drew my eye to...
Here Today, Gone Tomorrow

Here Today, Gone Tomorrow

Here are some pics of our master bathroom as it’s being converted to a guest bathroom! Above is a pic of our contractor Lucio working to carefully remove the old drywall from the old beams supporting the old chimney.  This was actually pretty tricky demolition because of the age of the drywall/ chimney and a...

Must Save the Boxwood

Must Save the Boxwood

Between Sunday night and yesterday mid-day, we got about 6″ of snow.  (And we didn’t lose heat OR water once!!!!)  My sister happened to be here visiting and David happened to be in LA for work, so us girls had ourselves an awesome little snow day.  She had to leave at about 4 PM though,...
Redesigning the Bathrooms Upstairs

Redesigning the Bathrooms Upstairs

The current layout upstairs has been the subject of much speculation since we moved in.  Long story short, the master bathroom was awkwardly designed and not the kind of bathroom I wanted for the rest of my life. Here are some pics of the master bathwhen we moved in: Once we started tearing things apart...
Inspiring Doors

Inspiring Doors

Last Thursday I didn’t post anything inspirational because right after work, David and I left town and went to Williamsburg for a nice long weekend!  Friends of ours, Mike and Julia, invited us to have a couples weekend getaway and it was seriously amazing.  Just the kind of TLC we needed. While we were there,...
"That's Cute."

“That’s Cute.”

After being with David for nearly eight years (time flies when you’re having fun!), I’ve learned a thing or two about him.  He uses the word “quite” when he’s trying to be polite.  He laughs really heartily and contagiously when he finds something funny.  And when he thinks something is frustrating or really annoying, he...
Hitch it up

Hitch it up

In moving from the city to the country, we discovered many (rather large) differences in lifestyle.  Quite a few of these differences are documented in this blog, but the one that probably took me most by surprise was the trash pickup situation.  As in there isn’t one… That’s right, there is no municipal trash pickup...
