On a New Adventure

"Life is either a daring adventure or nothing at all."  ~Helen Keller

With work gloves and a sense of adventure, we are headed north.  We are busy packing our bags (and boxes, boxes, and more boxes), as well as trying to prepare our current home for sale and our new home for, well, inhabitation.

Built in 1901, our new house is full of gorgeous details,

original woodwork,

detailed banisters,

built in bookcases,

a china cabinet,

and plenty of work to complete.

We have kept busy so far, peeling wallpaper,
 fixing plaster issues, removing uneven beadboard and linoleum, and working on the bathrooms and the kitchen.

It does require a lot of work, but it has so much charm, so much history.  It just feels like our home.

So, here's to a 2014 full of adventures, expanding horizons, and hard work!
