about me

My husband and I bought our first house together in February 2010 and poured our blood, sweat, tears and money into fixing it up.  We learned a lot along the way, and have since sold it and moved into our "forever" home, so I thought it would be fun/helpful to write about our successes and failures in design, real estate, renovations and all the fun stuff in between.  And, most importantly, it will be nice to look back someday and read the story of how our lives unfolded as we became real "suburbanites"!!.
