Well, this year’s blogiversary would have been completely forgotten (or at least massively delayed) had I not been randomly looking through the archives from last August just now. (I was remembering a post about how we always seem to start big house projects during the month of August.) Anyhow, as it turns out yesterday was chezerbey’s 3rd anniversary (which means we’ve been in this house for 6 years now)!

Last year, we revisited the goals made in 2010 and updated those for the coming year. After the craziness of 2010 and the first part of 2011 (when we completely gutted and remodeled most of the main floor), we were looking forward to slowing down a bit and taking on some smaller projects. Well, we were off to a good start but with a baby on the way we suddenly found ourselves creating a nursery, finishing the basement (albeit partially) and revamping our front yard. Oops.

On the blog front, aside from a few tweaks here and there the blog mostly looks the same as it did a year ago. But friends, that is getting ready to change because there is a big redesign happening as I type and we’re super excited about it! And some other stuff too. But that’s all I’m going to say for now. =)

Finally, blogiversary Q+A again? Yes? If you have a question for us (house-related or not), just leave it in the comments section or shoot us an e-mail and we’ll do our best to answer them in an upcoming post.

Finally, a big thank you and group hug for all of our readers. You guys are awesome and your support and encouragement goes a long way in making things happen around here. Truly. So keep being awesome and doing awesome things to your own homes. Seriously, I have a lot of nursing downtime these days and need fun posts to read!

[A bit of housekeeping – because we’re changing hosts, if you are currently a “follower” of this blog (and there’s a lot of you!), you’ll need to either subscribe to the RSS feed (through Google Reader or something similar) or sign up for e-mail notifications (in the sidebar over on the right) if you want to continue to be updated when new posts are written.]

    Q&A: What types of reference materials do you and Kyle use when doing all of the insanely unique skill work required to renovate your house largely by hand? I mean, I can’t imagine they teach you how to do ALL of this stuff in architect school… do they?

    Congrats! I have enjoyed watching your renovation adventures, your craftsmanship is amazing.

    Congratulations! Thanks for taking us along for the ride – it’s great!

  6. Hi Lauren! Funny you should mention that you need exciting stuff to read in your nursing downtime these days… cuz your blog is my absolute favourite to read when I’m having my morning coffee (I vote for you in all the online competitions you enter, and I’m scandalized and incensed if you don’t win every top prize!)

    Congrats on Avery, and happy blogiversary! Each day when I head over to Google Reader, I’m always hoping you’ve posted something new, and I’m frequently rewarded for hoping. You and Kyle keep so productive and busy! You two are a huge inspiration to me!

    Ok, enough gushing. Just know that there are complete strangers out there (in wintry Alberta) to whom you are an inspiration and a household name. Thanks for reaching out with your blog – I’ve learned a lot – and keep up all the good work!

    I just discovered your blog and your house is absolutely beautiful! I look forward to see more of it in the future!

    You guys have an absolutely amazing blog (and house). Easily one of my favorites, and every time my wife and I look for inspiration, we check to see what you did first! It’s always great to read about ex-pats from Oklahoma (I grew up in Broken Arrow).

    Keep up the wonderful work (and congrats on Avery)!

    Congratulations! The new look is great! I knew it was Anna’s work from the second I saw it. Yay Zerbey’s! You guys are awesome, thanks for keeping it going and letting us come along!

    Omygosh, I don’t take change well, lol! Give me a minute . . . . I did notice no facebook link – that is how I follow most of my blogs.
