It's been a year since we met. Thanks for your gracious advice on my house.
It was super fun to have won the contest at the Albany Home Show and get to spend some time with you. You were gracious, charming and a little sleep deprived as your son was just born. I see he has a new little sister, now. Two kids under two. Wow!
I've been drawing plans and elevations - lots of them. Construction starts tomorrow! That "wall of windows" you envisioned has morphed into a windowseat. I think you'll like it! It's not as modern as the existing house, but it will be the tail that wags the dog. I'm more of a "modern cottage" girl at heart.
The wall-o-wood is still there. I'm still wishing I could paint over it, but I know in my heart your advice that the slanted installation makes it dated is right. I'll make it all firewood by the end of the year, promise!
You're probably asking why a boring stock photo above and not a photo of you and I? Heaven knows Stacey took a gazillion of them. (She though you were adorable, by the way...) She misplaced the camera's memory stick. It's in a box, in a drawer, somewhere in her house. Perhaps the readers of this blog will think we never met without that proof, but Vern, you and I know the truth...
Send some construction prayers my way. You know you started this whole thing rolling...
p.s. I know how much you travel. Enter to win my giveaway - Ryan's Travelite Luggage Scale! I'm drawing the winner May 23.
