Hobbies, or Necessities?

We keep hearing similar phrases to the note of "If you can make it through building a house, you can make it through anything." In the beginning, I laughed these comments off and smiled.

Meeting the Neighborhood

This summer passed by in a blur. Between phasing out of one job into a very new role, packing memories from our first home together and prepping our new piece of paradise for a house, there was not a lot of spare time. Our decision to move back 'home' was something that we spent many... Continue Reading →
