Painting, painting ...

Finally decided to paint the apartment ... 5 months after moving in! Another benefit of having a tiny home: painting goes much faster! Seriously, our home in SLO was lovely, but it was difficult to paint--high ceilings, and the stairwell ... fuhgeddaboutit.

Pictures will follow soon! Stay tuned.

Meanwhile, Rachel is finishing up the semester. Hard to believe she's halfway done with her undergraduate career. She's preparing to go to Croatia for a month, and when she returns, she'll be taking a summer-school class at NYU and working (not sure at what, but she'll figure it out). In the fall, she's off to Paris for the semester (lucky girl!).

As for us, Jeff hit his first anniversary at Columbia. Mary's is in July. We're making progress on the Paris apartment ... in fact, we may be on TV! We'll share info as we can, so stay tuned for that, too.

All in all, life is presenting some challenges, but it's all good. We feel so fortunate to have good jobs, a nice home, and pretty soon, a second home in our dream city. And of course, Rachel is a continual blessing.
