Fall Nesting in Full Effect

Not the “Holy Shit, there’s a baby on the way” nesting but the kind that happens when the first cool weather snap takes place, the all pumpkin-palooza begins and for us newlyweds the wedding gifts finally get unpacked and put in their proper place.  Our nesting began today, prepped with coffee a vacuum and Leo’s strong hands.  The “music” room became our “sitting|tv”room and the piano shifted to the west.  The pup is still confused and it’ll take some getting used to but it’s fresh and we’re down with that.

On a side note, any designer friends out there or anyone that loves to work challenging layouts?  Give us a shout, our little apartment needs some help.


  1. Unfortunately placed radiators in EVERY room.
  2. The dreaded “railroad”
  3. Kitchen size = two square feet (on a good day)
  4. The ever-lacking storage

Small spaces require smart design!

Leonard, Agnes and gang decided to go to the beach to soak in the sun and meet up with a good friend.

They packed Agnes’ car to full capacity.
They brought chairs and umbrellas.
They hid from the rain.
They overcame massive bridges.
They nearly got carsick.
They laughed.
They chanted “beach, beach, beach!”
They drove and drove.
They passed their destination.
They drove back.
They found their friend.
They set up the umbrella/tent backwards.
They set up the umbrella/tent forwards.
They laughed some more.
They ate some sandwiches.
They did the “stingray shuffle”.
They collected shells in the Gulf.
They “built” a sandcastle.
They swam in a 100 degree saltwater pool.
They washed the sand off their feet.
They repacked the car.
They gave their friend hugs.
They stopped for ice cream on the way home.
They unloaded the car….again.
They had a snack.
They went to bed.

Agnes drove till she was blue in the face.  Leonard may never return to the beach.  A mini adventure and a great day!!

spent an afternoon at the dogwood festival in Greenfield Hill on Friday, adorable tiny town with unreal homes, barns, so super charming!! We stumbled upon the best olive oil/balsamic vinegar we’ve ever sampled… that being said, we tried lemon infused, garlic infused, basil infused and hot pepper infused olive oils- jonny’s head started buzzing immediately with what he could stir fry!

the meal hit the spot and i’m not even a huge tempeh fan.  it’s good to experiment.
