Hello, Friends.

Dream Kitchen.
Reality Kitchen.

Did anyone notice that I tend to be really heavy into updating this blog in January and then again in, like, July?

I should probably mention that very quantifiable cycle to my therapist. #mentalhealthsymptoms

ANYHOO. The last substantive post I wrote had to do with our yard and all of my wonderful plans for it. Well, my friends. I’ve scrapped most of that. Eric has taken up brewing as his full time hobby, and honestly, a bunch of burly, bearded, beer-drinking bros don’t need a lot of pretty furniture and plants to set the mood for their hops and barley experimenting.

I want a deck though. Like, real, real bad. We’re getting quotes.

We’ve made a lot of changes to the house over the last few months in other ways, though. I think I’m going to have to pull out the camera and share a few snaps soon. I’m really proud of how it’s coming together.

For fun, here’s a list of some of the things we’re still working on. They might change. Who knows! There’s a lot of art to be hung though – is it sad that we’re 1.5 years in and haven’t really moved in yet?
