{side project} Welcome to My Massive Mid-Century Modern Renovation

Two years ago, we bought a crazy 1960s house in the wine country near Santa Rosa. This only happened because it is literally next door to my parents’ house, and that kind of opportunity just doesn’t come along every day. In fact, the folks we bought the house from has built it themselves–meaning, with their own hands–in 1963 and lived in it until the present day. What an opportunity for an eclectic mid-century remodel project! It’s been habitable and nearly done for the better part of a year, but I finally got around to photographing and compiling the whole mess. Come on in and take a look!

{roundup} 33 Great End-of-Summer Recipes

I’m heading to Europe tomorrow for almost three weeks, and I couldn’t be more excited. We’re off to Switzerland for about a week (where I’ve only spent a night, heretofore) and Italy (which I’ve been to quite a few times, but it’s Italy, so it’s never enough.) I’m planning to take a vacation from the Internet, too, so I can really step away and relax, so I won’t be posting here again until early September.
