As I mentioned in a previous post, we hired an awesome guy named Lance Graves to install our springbox after months of searching for someone who could do it.

Our favorite is a lovely piece of property on a largish creek with an artist studio and a yurt, both of which we would be able to use.

And both of these properties are within 30 minutes of hubby’s new office and our oldest daughter’s future dance classes.
