Well hello there! Happy New Year friends - or at least I hope we're still friends...we are right?? Ok, This is awkward. It's been well over two months since we've blogged and as I'm sure you realized quite some time ago that week 6 of our One Room Challenge has long since come and gone without a reveal.
Unless you've been living under a rock somewhere, I'm sure you've seen countless people - friends, coworkers & celebrities alike - dousing themselves in buckets of ice cold water & then uploading the videos to their various social media accounts & challenging their friends in order to raise awareness for ALS.

3 weeks.... (That's how long it's been since my last post.) I should probably start by apologizing for the radio silence of late. I'm still here. I haven't abandoned you guys.

Or maybe you would - sometimes a public online meltdown just makes for good entertainment. Lol! I'm kidding (sort of).

Ok, wait...that sounds crazy. I guess I should explain. So back in December, I lost my purse at the Buffalo Bills game in Toronto. Thankfully a kind citizen

The problem being, the 'urban contemporary loft' generally comes with inner city living - downtown core, smaller square footage, higher prices, etc - which is fine when you're in your 20s and focused on your career. When the time comes to raise a family though, you tend to re-evaluate the things you want in a home; things like proximity to schools and family, having a backyard, and overall wanting a bigger living space.
So what is The Dreamhouse Project?? Simply put, it's going to be our all comsuming labour of love over the next year. We started this blog to document the journey - our ups and downs, musings and random thoughts on selling our house, moving in with parents, renovations, design ideas
