    What a LOVELY article! You’re such an inspiration! I have to say that the best thing about reading your blog is that you don’t trumpet yourself – you simply do what works for you and you share it with us. You make the rest of us feel inspired enough to say, “I think I can do that!” instead of, “I wish my house looked like hers” or “I wish I could have her life.” Thank you!

    I love reading stories about people who started something for fun, then it turned into a wonderful career! Your home is unique and all you and Brandon! I think that is why you draw so much attention. It’s not one particular style. It’s functional and lived it!

    Do you guys plan to live here forever?

    That’s great! As a native Oak Parker now living in Los Angeles, I was tickled to see you in the hometown newspaper. Now even my 84-year-old dad, who is an avid reader of the Wed. Journal, knows about MIL!
