Back with Big News

Dear Readers,

Over the last two months I have been neglecting this blog, partly because of going into hibernation with the massive amount of snow that the Boston area has received. Just getting the kids dressed and out the door to school/run errands/etc... has been a job in its self. But, there is another reason that I have been busy and here it is. We have started the process of designing our second floor addition!

We have hired our architect and now have our first round of plans to add a second floor to our house. This has been something that myself and my husband have been looking forward to for a long time and we are very excited to see it start to come to fruition.

I am hoping to bring all of you along for the journey ahead of us, We hope to start the building process a year from now. I am also hoping to share with you what it is like to take on such a massive project. 

More updates soon, so stay tuned.
