Personal

We bought a house in June. After moving around all my life (28 addresses at last count), I am thrilled to put down roots and have a permanent base (I still plan on as many adventures as possible). This is crazy and exciting and terrifying and amazing all wrapped up in one big, expensive package. We have professionals doing the especially skilled labor (taking down walls, putting up walls, adding a spiral staircase, stuff with electricity, plumbing, gas/oil, and 100 other things). We took on a task that took approximately 5x longer than we originally expected and though it’s nowhere near perfect, we’re pretty proud of ourselves: we painted the kitchen cabinets!

This consisted of exactly:
Countless hours
Many trips to Home Depot
A few new tools
Several choice words
Oodles of pride

We move in soon. We walk around the empty, dust-filled rooms and giggle as if we’re merely playing house. It definitely doesn’t feel like ours yet. I have Pinterest boards and a head full of ideas that have no chance of actualization.  Le sigh.

Some people (*cough* Andy *cough*) would not have been nearly as pleasant in that sun and heat.This leads me to my June Facebook cover images. The first is how I feel just about everyone felt these last few days. As a side note: huge ice cubes are awesome.As for my second image, I know some people ha ...

Lindsay’s European Adventure
“Can you drive stick?” was the only question my friend, Tish, asked on a Thursday when he offered up the opportunity to go to Europe for a week. I didn’t know any of the languages, any of the customs, and while I had thought about putting more stamps in my passport before wedding season, this wasn’t even on my radar. That Saturday night I was boarding a plane to Paris. I am still waiting to wake up from the dream that 2012 has been so far.My head was spinning on the way over. I was grinning from ear to ear, drinking miniature bottles of gratis white wine with my own row of seats and feeling like the luckiest person in the world. “Giddy” ...
