Today I sold the BMW to an Italian used car lot. I hope someone else loves it as much as I did. Now, what new car do I put a downpayment on? Oh, the options!

I know this is out of the blue. After a lot of deliberation with Jay, we have decided to pack up our belongings, sell the Dallas house, and move to Italy. I know what you are thinking. “WHAT!?” Yes, we are moving to right outside of Rome. And, yes, I have never been to Italy. […]

Jay and I did a house scouting trip around my birthday in 2016. Jay had done research on Italian properties for 6 months to a year prior to making the decision to actually move. Within 3 months of moving, we contacted a delightful British Relator, Alison Holland (in collaboration with the Alfano Consulting Agency), that moved to […]

It’s been a big year! I turned 30 this year and made my first big career change. After 6 years at Archiverde, I switched to Studio Outside to become a Project Leader. Studio Outside (sO) is relatively the same age as Archiverde. The main principles (Tary Arterburn, Chip Impastato, Mike Fraze, and Bill Millsap) formed […]

I just went through a 5 year program to get my degree, a year internship, and then 3 years of professional licensing exams… only to […]

Jay’s birthday is on 11/11 — and this year we went to New Orleans. We arrived late Thursday night. When we got to the French Quarter, and our Hotel St. Marie, we had to get our traditional Lucky Dog on the street corner. As an extra bonus, earlier that day, his parents arrived to spend […]

To break the monotony of the latter summer months we took several weekend trips to Jay’s family East Texas tree farm and oil fields. On our trips we discovered a great restaurant, Villa Montez. Once a residence from the late 1920s, it sits perched a top a hill, converted into a restaurant. Keeping true to […]

Hello, Log time no post. Sorry I have been so bad at updating my blog. But I just wanted to let you all know that something has been added to my name. Yes, a PLA. I am now Devon Blosch, PLA. That’s right! “PLA” you ask? Well, I passed the L.A.R.E. (Landscape Architect Registration Examination). […]

My Mazda 3 and I were in an accident in January 2013 — not my fault I should add. I went through the other person’s insurance and on their recommendation took it to Caliber Collision Body Shop. After about, 6 days, I was informed that the body damage had been repaired but they needed to […]
