This week was a bit of a blur after recovering from jet lag and a trip to NYC on Monday. Somehow time always goes by too quickly when you least want it to, like during the summer. We’ve got some more projects planned for the house including a mudroom that Craig started while I was away. It’s amazing what a difference it makes already. If you missed it, I posted the process of building the pergola over on The Cozy Ranch Instagram yesterday (and saved it to highlights too). Happy weekend friends.
