So I have been a little absent on the website lately, sorry about that.  I have been in transition lately.  Dana and I just purchased our first house together and we have been moving in.  It is a time consuming process.  However, I wanted to share with you the new base for  We just recently moved from Washington, DC to Richmond, VA. It is a really nice Goldilocks town.  Not too big, not too small, it is just right!

New House

Here is the new house from the front.  I loved it for the giant garage.  I always need a place to put my extra barbecue tools.

New Kitchen

I was in love with the Kitchen from the first time that I saw it.  All new stainless steel Kenmore appliances.  The Microwave is Kenmore Elite.  It microwaves, bakes, grills and further includes a convection oven.  Sounds cool, but it has already broke down.  I think it was afraid of the new owners.  I heard a rumor that the appliances were scared that they would be overworked since the new owners loved to cook.

All about wine

Here is a view from another angle.  I love the built in wine rack.  I think that will be the most used part of the kitchen.

Tainted Garden

The backyard is a really nice size.  Not too big.  I hate to mow.  The previous owners planted a garden with tomatoes, peppers and herbs.  I thought it sounded awesome, till I realized that Tucker equates garden to fire hydrant.  Yep, I was picking fresh tomatoes when Tucker came up and peed all over the basil.  I immediately went to the store and bought some.  I guess I will have to find a way to protect the garden next year.

Overall this is going to be a great house for the family.  Dana and I are really excited to settle in and start cooking.  I have already started to compile some recipes and will be posting them soon.

  1. Awesome house. I am jealous of your garden (though I would not eat basil that has been pissed on by a dog either.)

    🙂 Congratulations!
