    The trouble with Christmas . . .

    The trouble with Christmas is it really highlights the lack of storage in your home!  I distinctly remember sitting on Christmas morning staring at the various mountains of presents around the house, thinking where on earth is all this going to go?  We’ve just moved to a bigger house, so really we should be fine.  […]

    Last night on our way home from a weekend away we decided to stop by our new house to see how things were coming along.  We have both been getting a little anxious that it wasn’t going to be as great we had originally hoped. This is the first house either of us have bought […]
