Henry and I were talking the other night and thought it would be nice to add an article once a week that isn’t our normal content. I mean of course we love homes, DIY’s, and our work, but it’s also nice to let you all have some insight into more about who we actually are, what we like, our interest, and even some life or parenting tips along the way. Well, not sure about that last one…more times than not, we feel like failures at parenting. Maybe we are just too hard on ourselves. Are we alone here?
Our story all started with $10,000 dollars nearly 18 years ago. Henry and I had gotten married and was expecting our first child. He had just gotten laid off from a position as a web designer and I was teaching at a local high school. We didn’t have a penny to our name and as most young people after college, we were in debt. Henry’s uncle loaned us $10,000 dollars for a down payment on our first home. This was a “fixer upper”, but you would have thought we were buying a million dollar home!
