Happy Friday. We’re back in Vermont and getting settled/preparing for the school year. Ugh, back to school gives me anxiety, still. While we were away we had the garage addition insulated and all the electrical and plumbing roughed in. So exciting! Our list of projects is very long but I love watching this house take shape. I can’t wait to share more of this space during the fall and winter. Wishing you all a great weekend.
P.S. It sounds like everyone liked the new format of CRL that I introduced last week so I’m keeping it!
Here’s the best of the week… –Jess
