The Garden

Tuesday, May 2nd, 2017

When we moved-in the house had a small lawn and some lollipop-type rose bushes in the front.  We gave away the roses and let the lawn go in the drought. After which, we fondly referred to our small front and back spaces as dirt pits. We finally did something about it…


And here is the yard after the drought. All we did in that intervening time is remove the rose bushes in front, remove an old tree in back, and let things get pretty overgrown and unwieldy.

A little retrospective of the past year…

Friends over

Saturday, February 18th, 2017

Some fun occasions with friends–from NYE, to dinner with pals, to Lee’s birthday and prepping for the Women’s March–below are some snaps of recent gatherings here. We are just learning how to set-up for groups — kids downstairs and sit-down dinners for adults; dance parties and delicious food; creative spaces. We want our kids to grow up knowing the warmth of community in this house. We’re just figuring out how to do it, but we’re having a good time finding our way…
