It's funny that you mention the place not being sunny- it seems like you didn't open the curtains because the place gets lots & lots of sunlight! Also, the kitchen may have smelled a bit off since I burnt granola the day before you arrived but spent all day with the windows & doors open & candles & insence burning.
aw - we totally wish we lived closer too! you guys are "our people" and we are so grateful to have met you. I so hope we can keep in touch and cross paths sooner than later too. Give Brenda & Chip big hugs from us, and Beasley says hello. He's barking at a pitbull walking by - I think he misses Chip :)
