Something about the slope of the ground made it necessary to move the door from the garage into the house. At first I was freaking out a bit… I mean, we had no examples of this change...

It’s always fun to dream about becoming your best self, isn’t it?

My new kitchen is much more functional than the last one, which means I’ve been doing my best to cook more often.
