In anticipation of moving to our new home (less than two months away now!), we purchased a multi-purpose table for our kitchen, and four stackable chairs to go with it. The photos below were taken in our current kitchen, purely because of available space. The background is completely incidental; this is not the intended location[…]

Yesterday was a busy (and fun!) day for us. After lunch at McAlister’s Deli, we spent most of the afternoon outside the home, a welcome relief from the STD (Stomp Thumb Drop) people.
