Our First Blog

5 Apr


We are new to blogging and a little apprehensive, but are going to give it a try!  A  little background should start us off nicely.  My husband and I met 6 years ago this weekend in a little bar called “Ake’s Place” in Burlington, Vermont.  We had a few drinks, threw some darts, and thought that would be the end of it (partially because I’m 11 years older than my husband 🙂 Little did we know or expect, that six years later we’d have a 2 and 1/2 year old son (Aidan), a dog (DJ), a cat (Leo), and our second home together.  We decided to create this blog to keep track of many things, but most importantly milestones as a couple, a family, and as do it yourselfers.  When we bought our first home together we thought it was perfect……well……. then……a year later we had redone 3 bathrooms and done a mini kitchen renovation, as well as a lot of painting and decorating!  It has become a passion that keeps us both busy and sometimes, much to my husbands dismay, is something that I cannot stop thinking about, dreaming about, talking about………etc. etc.  So here it goes…… our diary about our family, friends, and making our home our own.

Opps… almost forgot, I’m Danielle and my husband is Dan…. his parents call us D squared, hence the name!
