I couldn't believe it when I looked at the calendar last week. I noticed that our blog was about to turn five years old!A few days later Facebook's "On This Day" feature did what it does best and led me on a nice walk down memory lane by showing me the post where we asked our friends to "like" our blog's new Facebook Page so that we'd be able to get the required 25 likes to obtain a "vanity" url for the page (www.facebook.com/oldtownhome/).  From those early days of blogging until today, five years later, we sure have had a wonderful experience! Looking back on the last five years it's hard to wrap our arms around the amount of effort we've put into writing and editing blog posts, taking photos, doing work on house projects, and just thinking about what we wanted to write about....

I may have mentioned that the amount of time I'm spending in my bed has increased a lot during this pregnancy - my mattress just wasn't cutting it. While ol' lumpy and I were no longer getting along, I dreaded the whole process of buying a mattress at the store. Too many options and a somewhat less than open sales pitch really puts me off. So when the lovely people at Leesa, a new online mattress company, asked me if I wanted to give their product a try, I jumped at the chance.The Leesa mattress arrived on my doorstep in an unassuming box.  I was a little suspect of how a truly plush, comfy mattress could fit in there but I held off judgement.  Out it came and we laid it on our bed and cut open the plastic....

One of the hallmarks of maturity is the ability to delay gratification.  If that's the case, I'm at the emotional level of ...oh geeze, what age does that really happen?  I know it's not grade school age, and there's no way it's the teen years!  Well, whatever that age is - I haven't reached it (at least in this case).Over the past 20 years 173 has seen plenty of changes.  Some minor, some major, most somewhere in between.  This is a major one - on par with the great re-siding of the porch.  But this one is bigger - more dramatic...more exciting and long awaited!  Sufficient buildup of anticipation?...

While our recently-finished bonus room upstairs was never intended to be a dedicated “media room” or “theater room,” we always knew it’d make a great spot for special family movie nights. But in adding a television, we didn’t want to create Cordfest 2016 up in here. So we thought we’d break down the 4 steps that we took to eliminate every visible cord on our new TV wall. All-in-all, the four steps cost us less than $75 and none took more than an hour-ish to execute (a couple only took a few minutes)....
