Update- Welcome Nigel!
It's been another long while, but wanted to share with my blog friends from days past our very happy news/update. Our son, Nigel was born on October 4th. This photo is from his first Thanksgiving. So much to be thankful for- especially as I think about all it took to get here. I've been busy with little house projects (the nursery for one) which I may post about... or perhaps "home on tallmadge" will reflect my current obsession and become Nigel updates. Most likely, though, this will be the happy sign off as I embrace my new full-time job being Nigel's mommy in our beautiful home on Tallmadge.
We are rebuilding our house after losing it in a massive fire on November 17, 2007. It's been a difficult ordeal-- losing so much, being displaced and then dealing with the major nightmare of our insurance company... but this blog is an effort to focus on the future and the path we're taking to get there. It's an effort to focus on the positive-- that we are rebuilding, rebuilding a house that we never otherwise could have found-- a house according to our tastes exactly. I've vowed not to bring up insurance or banking headaches or even the multitude of heartaches of the past year plus, but instead to focus solely on the exciting (and sometimes frivolous) adventures in building a house. More importantly, having lost so much of our 'history'in the fire.... this is the beginning of a new story, the story of our new HOME....
