3 Things We’re Focusing on in 2018

Happy New Year! We had our first real snowfall in Columbus last week right before NYE, and it made me feel like a kid again.  6 inches, guys!  For many of you that’s teeny tiny, but it’s kind of a big deal for Cbus — normally we don’t get more than an inch or two at a time and it’s no fun.  I woke up early, grabbed my camera, and took a stroll around the neighborhood.  No dirt, no salt,...

Happy Anniversary to Us!

Four years ago (has it really been four years?!), Bryan and I got married in the little historic city of Ponce, Puerto Rico. We had only visited the island once before with a very special friend, and fell in love with the Plaza, the old cathedral dating back to 1670, and the historic mansion, Castillo Serralles, overlooking it all. Neither of us had any ties to Puerto Rico, but after that visit, we were hooked and knew it would be the...

Hello, Franklinton!

If you haven’t heard, we officially own our very first investment property!  It’s a brick duplex in an up-and-coming neighborhood called Franklinton, and it’s full of many, many fun (and not so fun) projects that we’ll be sharing with you in the coming months.

We Moved!

To Doggy Heaven We Go

As many of you know, we lost our pup, Baci, last week.  He wasn’t even 4 years old. It all started less than 2 weeks ago with him being a little lethargic.  It progressed into him not wanting to eat or drink for a few days.  Not even treats.  We knew something was up, so we brought him to the vet and they gave him some special food for upset stomach, and some pills to take.  He didn’t want to eat the pills or the food,...
