"home is the place where it feels right to walk around without shoes"

Well then kick of your shoes and stay a while!

We, the Petaja family of Tec and Chelsea, are now proud home owners! We closed on the home yesterday, drank celebratory champagne on the front porch swing, and sat with friends and neighbors as a storm rolled in and the rain came down. Cheesy and trite? Maybe. But it's one of those memories that I thought would only ever be a dream. Now we have our dream home.

Hello. I just watched your wedding film after it was suggested through the comments at A Cuo of Jo. It's amazing! I adored it. And the song choices were perfect. Adding James Brown at the end was genius. And you're friends with Mat Kearney. That's pretty cool. Congrats on your house. It's so lovely!

Hi there! Adorable home! My sister has fallen in LOVE with the paint color and is trying to figure out what color it actually is. She will be painting her own home in 3 weeks and is desperate to know. Do you have any idea what the name of the color is? Thank you, Kathee p.s. please e-mail me at pipesa10@earthlink.net.
