Fireflies are intriguing and neon green.
It feels exceptionally gratifying to work hard with someone you love.
Projects on the horizon include replacing four doors upstairs, landscaping the front yard, one kitchen, two bathrooms, and building a chandelier (think: driftwood, thick rope, pulleys, and an antique steel candelabra). As one would guess, more to come.
