I must apologize for my extended period away from CFB. Many life changes have kept me preoccupied and I’m afraid my home improvements and champagne intake has suffered as a result.

Such changes include: a new career in a field completely new and unfamiliar to me, a life commitment to my home design enabler and the occasional victim of my ever evolving champagne taste, and lastly, a computer that requires a 20 minute rest period after every 30 minutes of use (the latter being the true hindrance to my posts).

For the 3½ of you still checking in on a weekly basis, thank you and spread the word – I’m back! My tastes have never beer more champagne, and my budget never more beer, so come back soon – pictures and inspirations will be up before week’s end!
