Deuce Cities Henhouse

I'm sure I'm not the only one who has felt an array of feelings since quarantine began. Most of the time I fall somewhere between a complete lack of motivation, and sheer boredom. And then every once in awhile I'll get a sudden burst of energy and I'll do all the things all at once.

Budz! Big news on the blog today! Did you happen to see the December issue of Better Homes & Garden’s, cause if not, you should! Last year BHG asked us Allen’s to share with the world how we celebrate Christmas at our new-to-us cabin. I was a bit skeptical because I’ve participated in a magazine shoot of our home before, and I would have to say the end result wasn’t a true representation of us. Howevs, this was Better Homes & Garden’s the magazine I flipped through as a kid, and have subscribed to as an adult. This is the big enchilada, so yes, of course. Come to our cabin! READ MORE
