Magic Has Come

There has been a new addition to the Manor. We are officially home-owners since we just completed our first remodel! We now have a secret Narnian space in our house. If you open our downstairs coat closet next to the kitchen and staircase, you will find nothing quite out of the ordinary: a vacuum, a broom, lots of hanging coats. But keep going. You must part the coats, and beyond them you will find another secret doorway. Step through, and there is a cozy space that continues to the left under the stairs. We decided to maximize this hollow space for two reasons. First, we could use extra storage, especially when children come along with all their large bulky toys. And second, we could use a place to hide those children in the event that they're unsightly.

Just kidding.

We want a secret place to delight our children and spark their imaginations.

And until they come along, you might find us under the stairs.

I can't wait to check out the Narnian staircase. It sounds pretty amazing.

I highly doubt you two could have unsightly children, they'd be ADORABLE.

I think that's a rather fun idea, though, having a Narnian staircase.

(randomly found your blog through Kim's blog, hi!)

Dick and I came to your house while Mr Swensen was working on the cupboard. I was surprised at how much space there was. I'm also
expecting you to have beautiful kids!

Aw, thanks! You and Michael were amazing, thank you so much for helping with the ceremony, the reading and song were a great touch and I'm so glad we could count on you, especially since the song part was so last minute!

Re: House sitting -- That sounds really neat, I mentioned it to Eric and we'll have to see if something works out... we do have work most of the summer, but a few days might be really fun.
We shall let you know **nods**

The Secret Cubby under the stairs is ridiculously neat! Perfect for Mr. Tumnus.
