For those of you who don't know, Don and I have been working with a builder on a pretty major remodel of our main living spaces. We have an older ranch home and it had a traditional layout of a large front living room, dining room, small kitchen and small den. All of these spaces were divided by walls so the home always felt very small and claustrophic. Except for a huge front living room that we never used! We decided to bite the bullet and tear down the walls, get a beam put in above the ceiling for support and basically to create one big open room with a larger kitchen. We're still decorating and settling in, but we are very happy with the results.

Party Time

We had some friends over to watch an outdoor movie last weekend and Declan and his friends started an impromptu dance party.
