About the Folks Episode 2!

Hello hello! It’s another release day! About the Folks Episode 2 has arrived! What is this? Let me tell you.

Introducing: About the Folks!

For years now, I’ve had this idea about doing something on my blog other than just talk about myself and whatever I’m doing. Enough about me*. Let’s dish about other people. (*I recognize I also owe you updates about me. life has been insane and I have a lot to tell you.) When I moved to Kingston in 2013, I had barely spent any time here and didn’t...

Finding the One: My New Sofa!

This post is in partnership with Article, who generously provided the featured furniture! Remember how we all just lived through a pandemic that forced us to stay in our homes by ourselves all the time?

Remember That Time I Built a Whole House?

Some of you know this story so I’ll try to keep the history lesson brief: way back in 2015, I was hired to fix up a sweet funny little house in the woods that a couple friends of mine—Adriana and Barry—had recently purchased. This was intended to be a fairly straightforward undertaking—eliminate a weird half-bathroom, enlarge and replace the kitchen,...

7 Years in Kingston! Revisiting the Kitchen & Pantry!

I get asked about my kitchen…kind of a lot. It’s been so long since it’s made an appearance on the blog that I understand why you’d think it must be done by now, and I’m just holding out on you.

7 Years in Kingston! Revisiting the Dining Room
