  • Katie and Scott,

    This is so cool. I am excited to see your adventure unfold and you’re so going to make it as awesome as can be.

OK…so we haven’t technically been out scouting for land 5 bazillion times, but it sure seems like it when your 2 year old’s social graces have run out. Last weekend we visited a 20 acre property in Winchester. Scott liked it. I did not. Scott felt like it was just the right amount of privacy. […]
