And here’s the “during semi-after not quite finished but enough to […]

Backyard Renovation

It alllll started with a Homecoming dance. My son came home and said, “Hey, I told a bunch of my friends they could come over after the Homecoming dance for a bonfire!” Unbeknownst to me, a bunch means 15. And a bonfire means coming over for dinner and pictures before. Here is said fire pit. […]

Care Package Idea

08.12.2014

My best friend is going through some stuff right now, and he lives far away. Nothing more frustrating than a friend in need when you can’t physically be there, eh? So I sent a care package to make him (and me) feel better. I think a care package is pretty personal, so it’s not like […]
