Man und Machine–that’s Jim Burns next to his German LÄGLER wood floor sander, the Mercedes of sanders, which he used to transform our studio floor.  Jim took that floor from old carpet to new oak and really helped to finish the look of our studio, working on the floors at all hours of the night (Jim’s a night owl for sure).  In former days Jim was a motocross racer, and today he lives in Granby CT.  You can reach Jim at 860.209.7326.

Happy Monday, Jane here.  Yes, I’m holding on to the holidays with our golden holiday card tree until January 31st…don’t worry, we did throw out our real tree!  I have a resolution from two years ago called “embrace winter”…since I hate the cold and have often wished it away!  I think that part of it is keeping our house cozy with a festive feeling…twinkly lights, holiday decorations, fires, cooking, drinks with friends, and apparently a lot of Lego building with my boys!   Here are other things I’ve done so far to embrace winter…in case you feel the same:

1.  Joined a ski club and committed to skiing in Vermont at least 3 times this spring
2.  Invested an REI hat
3.  Bought some really warm Keen boots
4.  Got some
lined snow pants and a ski sweater for xmas – woo hoo!
5.  Went tubing
6.  Walked our 12 yr old Lab Rupert!
7.  Learn soup and slow cooker recipes – today did both – Cauliflower Soup!

 

Our road trip destination was Vero Beach and we were thrilled to spend it with my parents, my brother, John and his wife Rei, and their adorbable two-year old, London!  Sebbie and Jude were so happy to be the big cousins for once and doted on London like a little sis.  I’m really glad we took the time to do a portrait shoot in this old tackle shop that I loved and reminded me of old Florida.  The last picture of us was taken by John.  You can see many more pics from the shoot by clicking here.
