we've only just begun





well, for those of you that have witnessed our ups and downs with real estate....i have good news to report.

we got the keys to our little 750sf cabin in the sonoma mountains. exciting little/big project, chalked full of hopeful future post.

we are just excited to escape the city on the weekends and enjoy some real summer weather on our own land. i need some heat and i need it now. enough of this june gloom that has crept into august. high in sf today, 63 (at least the sun comes out).

no shots of the interior at this time..will save them for before and after shots, but here is a glance at the ouside before. the first photo is of the driveway and if you look close enough you can see the shack at the very top of the drive.

did i mention it is in the middle of nowhere, just vineyards, lama farms and a zen retreat.

cheers to little to no budget with great expectations. feelling blessed indeedie!

This little cabin is going to give you years and years of thank you's for all the love and care that it's going to recieve from you... it's so exciting, many blessings!

We're still trying to have summer here too...I wore a sweater again today. :/

And last but not least...tonight I was missing a smile and your comment brought it back (really)...thank you. :)

good morning it is.
chilly, cloud cover, garbage truck down the street beeping AND a blog that keeps on giving.
thanks for all your comments and cheer. it seemed to rotate my attitude right back on the path of thankfulness.
red ticking - the light is on always.
laura - she is a great addition to the family and hopefully you will be able to enjoy.
24 corners - can't wait to share stories with you..they will surely surface. my wardrobe alway's has a cardigan...12 months a year. this summer has caused me to want another sun filled getaway..the kind that usually arrives in febuary.
hang in their baby....not sure what the learnings will be for you, but we all know you will get through this with grace and won't break your spirit and kindness. it is all relative and i know good outweighs this. it is still crappy and stinky though!!
24 corners - i can't wait for your comments and ideas....
happy hump day.
