It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas. Everywhere I go. Take a look in the five-and-ten, Glistening once again. With candy canes and silver lanes aglow It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas. Toys in ev’ry store But the prettiest sight to see is the holly that will be On your own front [...]
I’m dreaming of a white dining room over at Family Style today. Lots of ideas. Join me.
Remember I said I wanted to live in the NYC Ace Hotel bathroom? Well, we’re moving that bathroom into our house this weekend. Because nothing says “Thanksgiving” like tearing the walls apart. Right? So far we’ve done this. And this. And this. Awesome, right? I’ll keep you posted on the progress.
So, it’s true. I’ve sorta become a farmer. As I type this sentence, I have 22 different kinds of things growing in my backyard. You should also know that I am someone who cannot keep a plant alive. I’m not sure how the two things live together. But maybe that will explain some things… This [...]

For a while now, I’ve been talking about Central Texas in general, and Austin in specific. This is mainly because I’ve moved here. I haven’t really admitted that out loud to myself, much less to the entire internet, but there you go. We are moving. We have moved. I’m not sure why it took me [...]
So here’s the thing. We sorta moved to Austin. And by sorta, I mean, basically. And by basically, I mean somewhat. To sum up: none of our stuff is here, but we are. What I’m trying to say is that for the time being, we will be dwelling in and re-doing my great-grandmother’s house. Technically, [...]
