Hey there, Globetrotter! Before I get into the nitty gritty of our Icelandic adventures I have one serious question: where does the time go? Seriously? This blog post has been sitting in my unpublished folder for 18 months! Eighteen months! If you follow along with Kindred Home on Instagram you know that a lot has happened in that time.

Turns out blogging is a pretty time consuming venture and frankly I just didn't have the time to make blogging regularly do-able.
As many of you know, I started Kindred Home in late 2014 (then Sunny & Lo). I left a steady job without much of a plan, just a dream to build my own business, which was pretty crazy to a lot of people - even me at times - yet I held on to faith that I'd figure it out along the way. Read More
