It’s been quiet around here for the last two weeks, I know. That trip to France distracted me but I decided to soak it all in instead of worrying about blogging. Thanks for your patience with me. I’ve spent the last few days getting caught up, and recovering from a little jet lag.
While I was away, my home underwent a big change. The entire downstairs floor is oak wood and they’ve needed to be refinished for years. The polyurethane had yellowed and there was damage in several places. Before I left for France, we moved all the furniture to the garage, then Matt and the kids moved up to the studio for a week so an entire crew could come in and refinish the floors. It was a major headache but props to Matt for handling it in my absence. I’ll share the story next week!
