Eat, Sleep, Work, Move

The past few months have been quite hectic. We decided we’d had enough of living in the middle of the state and moved back to the western side. I’m able to have a highway free commute which I love.

Build Guild Hartford

Hopefully this will continue and attract others to come share in the fun.
