When we returned to Atlanta in 2015, we knew it would only be for a short time. After living on the West coast of the United States for approaching 10 years, our plan was always to retire on the Pacific coast. We love the weather and stunning scenery there by the ocean.
We placed our Atlanta home on the market… Continue reading
In our efforts to sell our home, we have consulted with a guru stager. She knows what people want to see when shopping for a home. Her job is to make the house look as ideal as possible for the largest market share based on research.
Interestingly to me, the way you stage a house is very much different from… Continue reading
We left Sausalito in 2014 to return to Atlanta. But we missed the Bay Area so much! We decided to purchase a tiny condo in San Francisco. We have owned that property for the last 4 years.
You’ve heard of the pied a terre (foot on the earth). Our condo was so small we called it l’orteil a terre (toe… Continue reading
How long has it been since I’ve blogged? Weeks and weeks! Since December 7th, to be exact—over a month! In the past 10 years I don’t think I’ve ever gone a whole month without blogging! But life got really, really insanely busy.
I have moved back to Atlanta—talk about a time- and task-intensive process!

Last week I posted about the piano mover getting their truck stuck at the bottom of our hill. What I didn’t mention is that they pushed the piano bench, legs and the pedal assembly up the hill to the house.
Doesn’t it look nice?… Continue reading
And, for the waiting masses: The Kitchen and Dining Room Pano!… Continue reading
Well, it’s taken a really long time*, but here is the living room pano. The room is not completely finished: you know, always a work in progress. But for now at least, it’s mostly done. We just need to find that perfect thing to hang over the fireplace.
We decided that since the house is a “mid-century classic,” and since… Continue reading
Here is a second panorama from the house in Sausalito. This one was shot of the empty kitchen and dining room the day before the movers arrived. Click the image to play, and don’t forget you can take control of where you look in the pano.
After everything is finally put in place, I’ll include some panos from around the… Continue reading
Click the image below to see a pano of the living room area when the Sausalito house was completely empty. I shot this the day before the movers showed up. You can see down the short “hall” into the dining room area with the large aluminum fireplace. The long hall goes to the remainder of the “mid-century classic” house. Right… Continue reading
Well, last night we went to the new house to meet with the previous owner to run through all of the house systems and how to operate them. She is a vivacious and lovely person who also invited the neighbors over for a meet and greet–how incredibly thoughtful. This will be a very different living experience for me: a place… Continue reading
