progress made...

i love the design phase of work, of course.
but i LOVE the implementation.

its fun to FINALLY see where all your time is going...and the design business is a slllloooowwwww one...especially when dealing with those blasted 14-16 week lead times.

oh, and i love old wood
that will serve as a ceiling treatment {reclaimed beams and barn siding} on another project...

ive got some catching up to do on this here blog...husband left me for a week last week {to alaska nonetheless}, during which the kiddos and i quickly and unexpectedly hopped...or scrambled...on a plane to louisiana to attend a relatives funeral.

it was quite the interesting week for all involved.

good news though, i received my drivers license in the mail today... thank you delta

...if that gives you even the remotest glimpse into the insanity that accompanied me and my two monkeys on our "quick flight" two states over.

yea, there are some stories...and pictures...always pictures
