Last year, Dave’s parents moved from Dave’s childhood home to a cozy lake house in the nearby village of Skaneateles. They had always loved Skaneateles Lake, but never anticipated finding a house there.

Friends! Let’s play a little catch-up. This spring has marked an exciting new season for me, both professionally as I’ve been working on something new (SO much to share in the coming months, I promise!) and personally as Charlie and Azelie have hit some fun milestones.
