Growing up, I was always happiest sitting at the table with crayons or pencils - so much so that, because I didn't have a middle name, I spent a great deal of effort trying to convince my parents to legally change my name to "Angela Artist." Fortunately my parents suggested I wait until I was older to make that decision (by then, of course, I had changed my mind), but they did get me a set of personalized pencils emblazoned with my unofficial "full" name.
When Scott and I got married, we lived in a condo in downtown Denver and we spent all our free time making those 900 square feet perfect for us. But when the opportunity arose to buy a home in our favorite neighborhood (with room to grow), we jumped at the chance. It has been an interesting experience moving into a very modern new-build in the middle of a historic neighborhood where not everyone is happy to see homes like ours popping up. But the neighborhood has over 100 years of different architectural styles, and I like to remember that once upon a time all those 1950's bungalows were the new-builds among the 1890's Victorians. And it's that continued evolution that I believe has kept our neighborhood such a fun and happy place to be!
We were very fortunate to move into a new home that didn't immediately need major renovations, so we have been able to focus our efforts the last four years on making it our own - which is a never-ending work in progress (just the way I like it). Now that our family has grown to include one very adorable and active little boy and another baby on the way, we are constantly making adjustments and additions to create the perfect family home for us.
Thank you for taking the time to visit, and I look forward to hearing from you (fingers crossed you'll have nice things to say)!
