Someone asked if demo work was like they show on HGTV. Sorta.
Here is a video of Sebastian in action taking a wall down.

I started this week so hopeful that we would find something incredibly cool as we started taking the walls down. Now, in my defense in our current home, letters were found from right before the Depression, written between two young college sweethearts!

Healthy eating! But not crazy diets. Anyone who has been around me long knows I love sweets, and that’s not really changing in 2019. However, can I eat healthier is the question? I’m reading “...
