Our First Week in Middletown

The past few days in our new space have consisted of unpacking boxes delivered by Fedex, a trip to Sacramento (Sac friends: I swear we were only there long enough to run a couple errands, go to Ikea……and eat at Sandwich Spot.

Well, as you might guess there is no “perfect” blog, just like there is no perfect time to start something. I woke up this morning and decided I am starting today, no if’s, and’s or but’s about it, and I am beginning with an imperfect introduction to why we are even starting a blog to begin with.
