I realized if I wait for 'the right time' to start this blog, then it would probably never happen. There will always be things in my life to keep me busy, but I figure this will be a good way to keep in touch with all of you as we travel down this path God has for us.
I'll be taking advantage of this blog to ask for advice as we work on the house (since you all can't just come over and advise). We're working on our den area, which is an awkward shape. We watch tv episodes on David's computer, so we'd like to be able to see that from the couch. But, we also have the fireplace, which feels like it should be a focal point of sorts. I've been looking at some design books, and several have mentioned getting away from furniture 'hugging' the wall all the time. It seems especially true in this room, since it's an odd shape. Here's our current configuration--what do you think?
