Ah yes, it's that time again where I determine to myself that I am going to make and, most importantly, sustain a blog. Meaning that I will aim to feed it new content more often than I change jobs. But if you have experienced any of my online endeavors in the past, you'll know that this is highly unlikely.
Since you are here, welcome! (How in the hell did you get here, anyway? I love comments, please let me know!) I am going to try to make this a blog about living in Benton Park, a historical neighborhood near downtown St. Louis. Our house is a gut-rehab, and even though it was built in 1892, it is not the oldest on the block by a long shot.
St. Louis is fascinating to me for a number of reasons, mostly because of the history and atmosphere that pervades our older neighborhoods. I moved down here from Chicago a few years ago, and not to dismiss Chicago, but St. Louis has something really special about it. Oh yeah, and did I mention that everything is actually affordable here? Novel concept.
So, I'm going to try to post frequently. If you're interested in reading about life in the Gateway City, please come back again!
