This year has been… a mess. We’ve all faced new challenges and have been forced to adapt to the ever changing state of the world. Through all of this, we’ve been trying to focus on what makes us happy, what we’re thankful for, and the positive outcomes. In honor of Thanksgiving, we’d like to share some of the things we’re grateful for. Owner Jenny “I think there has been a bright side to COVID. I wouldn’t have enrolled my kids in a private, which has turned out to be really healthy for them. People wouldn’t be home looking around and finding a million remodel projects. In June, we got to visit Yellowstone. Due to COVID, it was almost empty. It was the most wonderful family vacation we have ever had.

Don’t question what you add to your idea book on Houzz or pin on Pinterest. Maybe you’ll find that each image looks similar or has a certain element in common. Regardless of what you may find, make sure […]
