Ground-Breaking News!

I try to keep this blog as professional as possible and not really discuss my personal life! Ha! As if…(and yes, that was an intentional throwback to Alicia Silverstone in Clueless!)

We all know my life is an open book, and not always as simple as Paperino!

So – I absolutely must share with you our latest ground-breaking news, and when I say ground-breaking I mean…literally…we’re breaking the ground!

As hard as it is to believe, there are contractors who work in August. I know, because they started this week breaking the ground for our new house.

This is more or less where the house will be built.

After two years of working with the architect, pushing paperwork, and making plans we are finally getting started, and it’s all in the hands of a Bobcat!

    J – We’ve been working with the architect for 2 years now. It has American closets! ha ha A MUST, you know! It has (or, uh, will have) a private balcony off of the kitchen and the master suite, and a rustic kitchen downstairs (like an entertainment room) to have guests over, cook in a wood-burning oven, etc…Fun stuff, eh?? I am still working on the jacuzzi!
