end of the year adventures.

It’s been a busy few months for me, and these last few weeks especially have disappeared completely. There has been a lot going on.


Since getting back from Houston at the end of October, I’ve been pretty much consumed by two big things, finishing up work on a book and buying a house–both of which still sound completely crazy to me and are kind of terrifying. The book has been in the works for a while, and only now am I finally starting to feel like I’m over the big hump in the process. Having made it this far, it’s exciting to start seeing the vision coming together, and I am really looking forward to sharing it in the coming year.


Buying a house has been the other beast in my life that I’ve finally wrapped up on within the last few weeks. It’s been (and will continue to be) a learning experience to say the least, especially when the house is approaching her 91st birthday in 2014. Being an avid fan of old stuff and character, she is very full of both.

Merriest wishes at the end of 2013, and here’s to 2014 being just as special.

    so excited for you and for all that is to come! Old houses are the best!! I think I’ll definitely have to plan a visit!

    Congratulations on both ventures! but must warn you…. old houses are a very addicting drug… no matter how much grief they give you, the joy and beauty is unmatched by anything built today. :)

    Writing a book is a ton of work! I know. And buying a house on your own, feels like jumping off a cliff!, right? I’m sure you have lots of family support for both endeavors, and I wish you nothing but success. Have a very happy and healthy 2014! Blessings.
