We’re in the NY Post!

Guess what? WE’RE IN THE NY POST!  It’s so fun and surreal to see this.  If you know our story, you know that we used to live in NYC and decided to move to Columbus to create a better quality of life for ourselves.  We loved NY (and if we’re being honest, I miss it), but we found ourselves stuck in a cycle that we didn’t like being in.  We didn’t think that moving to Columbus would lead to opening an...

Hello, Franklinton!

If you haven’t heard, we officially own our very first investment property!  It’s a brick duplex in an up-and-coming neighborhood called Franklinton, and it’s full of many, many fun (and not so fun) projects that we’ll be sharing with you in the coming months. There are some really great things about both sides of the house – high ceilings, unfinished basements and attics (Bryan can stand in both!), original trim, original hardwood floors, and fireplaces.  Each side is 1500 sq ft,...
