After the fire, we rebuilt. Here are some of my favorite photographs from the two years it took to create my little Temple in the Woods.

It seems like a lifetime ago- and then it feels like last year! Out of your comfort zone on 20 foot high scaffolding- sure was out of MINE! I walked in, looked up and thought….today you are NOT a mother. Otherwise I would have screamed- what are you doing??? Get down THIS minute!

And I always feel your Dad there…
Adventures come in all sizes and shapes. And it can’t really be an Adventure unless there is at least some small chance you’ll break down along the way. But this…this was an Epic Adventure. And we never left the property (except to go to Home Depot every day). And we only broke down once in awhile.
We spent a lot of time thinking about how we wanted to live and then we worked our ass off to make it happen. This is house is a metaphor for the rest of my life. It’s one of my gurus.
