A journey begins...

We purchased our home in Rio Nido in November 2016 after living here since April of 2014. We had fallen in love with this little place the minute we saw it, but didn't dare hope it would ever be OURS.

Living under giants...
Well, now it is, and the real fun begins. This space will be a journal of our efforts to transform this place into something that truly reflects who we are and what we believe is important in life.

It's really pretty impossible to fully convey the beauty around us. We are minutes from ancient redwood groves, the Russian River, the breathtaking Sonoma Coast, and the many unique towns that make up Sonoma County. This place is incredible, and we wake up every morning in disbelief that we are so blessed to live here. We love spending time outdoors, and living in this perfect corner of Northern California gives us infinite opportunities to be surrounded by all these natural wonders.

As we settle into the realization that our dream has become a reality, some ideas for enhancing our property are starting to percolate. This blog will be where we chronicle how those ideas come to fruition, our thoughts about the process, and share information we find on the way to look back on over the years.

In light of the historic developments that took place in our federal government today, this space will also help us hold onto and pursue our dreams so we aren't bogged down by the heaviness of modern life.
