I’m baaaack with more updates from DC on the home front — and soon will hopefully be able to show you some progress on our house in New Hampshire too. It’s incremental progress but progress all the same, right?!Read More
First of all, thank you for reading this & giving me a chance to share a little progress on the homefront here! It’s been 18 months since we moved in and things are finally, sloooowly but surely, coming together.
