Dave and I fall into a funny category of caring a lot about what our space looks like (and more importantly, how its appearance makes us feel), while not having the skillset, patience, or desire to ever take on a big renovation.

Since then, that post gets more traffic than almost anything else on Something […]

For the very first time, we aren’t traveling for Christmas! We usually take advantage of Dave’s company shutdown over the holidays by taking a longer trip (usually close to two weeks) to see one of our families, but knowing I’d be in my third trimester by Christmas this year, we made the decision early-on to […]
