Please pardon light posting this month, as the staff of Always Double Back have a lot on their plates. After careful consideration, we’ve decided to consolidate operations and pack all of our editorial and musical genius under one little roof. We’ve started the stressful, exciting, and sometimes discouraging process of finding just the right home in a tight and extremely competitive housing market. We visited our first promising spot today, with a back deck, working fireplace, and well-appointed handkerchief of a kitchen. Of course, there were about 10 other people there with the same idea. Between searching, working, and packing, we’ll both be pretty busy for the rest of the month, but I’m sure the outcome will be worth it. Cross your fingers for us out there…
