The Renovations Begin : ORC Week 2

Guys! I'm here to kick off week 2 of the ORC! First, would you like to know what I've been up to this week! A whole lot of restoration, bay-beeees! That's right.

Wow, So Many Changes

Dudez, I never intended for it to be such a long absence here on the blog. I'll start by saying that this has probably been the craziest few months of our lives. We were finally settling in with the West Wisco cabin, when Jeff was offered his dream position at a new company located right on the banks of Lake Tahoe, in C-A-L-I-F-O-R-N-I-A.
