Here is the room in it's first phase (notice the up side down map...it was a funny joke for a 14 yr old..he is now 24...) This is what it looked like when our second son used it when he...

So what do you do when there's a crazy snow storm and you need to get from Vermont to Portland Maine? you drive very very very slowly for hours... but it was so worth it! I've never been to Portland before and honestly it was really to cold to walk around, we did manage to go down to the port from the hotel for about 10 minutes just to look around a little, we loved what we saw and truly...

Up until A few weeks ago Ronen and I were busy planning a major renovation in our house, we had everything figured out, we would completely open up the main living spaces to create a big loft like space, we would move our beloved Ikea kitchen to a different bigger corner with a giant island, we would knock up our low ceiling and put sky light windows in, we would build a porch and get new giant windows with black...

We stopped for a delicious homemade currant scone at the... Continue reading
