What the hell are we doing?

    Wait, weren’t we supposed to settle down in Idaho?! Well, nobody said we’re people who stick to plans. Quite the opposite actually. ( I just realized I never actually blogged about that whole North Idaho Homestead Winter Experience Extravaganza. Maybe later) And so we are resuscitating our more-than-ever bea...

Modifying Betty to make a beautiful and stylish home? Don’t even get me started on the struggles with that. And then the parents where visit...
