Let’s Move In!

If you’re here, reading this, I’m guessing there is a good chance that you are equally as home obsessed as I am. I started this site after finding a gem of cabin across the country while perusing house listings for a few years and then finally purchasing and renovating said cabin.  I’m never not scrolling house listings. There was one I found in Wisconsin last year that Leanne Ford and I dreamed about doing together, not because it was anywhere we wanted to be but because the house was SO damn interesting (I shamefully didn’t save the photos and it has sold). And remember how when Clover was born I lost my mind and we bought our Michigan house off the internet? Like I said, I’m never not looking. For a while last year it became my nightly wind down routine. Does anyone else do this? I know I’m not alone. I also go right into designing it from the listing, sometimes renovating and furnishing an entire house in my head. You have no idea how many houses I have “moved into” in my head all over the world.  I tell myself I do it to keep my design mind sharp, but really it is just some good ol escapism :)

So here we are with a new column and I am calling it, “Let’s Move In”. So I can drag you along with me as we move into dream houses all over the country. This first home takes us to sunny, dreamy Topanga, CA. Tucked up in the mountains, snug in the trees.

SSS Bookclub!

Happy New Year! It’s now halfway through January and I realized I haven’t logged in on here in a while. During the shutdown last year, I started reading again (you know, between homeschooling and learning how to cook every meal) but really, I did make it a point to turn off my phone at night and curl up with a book instead. It was partly what helped me keep my sanity. I have enjoyed it so much but find myself wanting to discuss the books with someone, anyone! Being a part of a book club sounds great but I would probably be the only nerdy one that actually read the book and wanted to discuss while drinking and eating all the cheese plate, of course.
