Residing in our 119-year-old home is a wide array of plants, animals, and two human beings (me, Madeleine, and my roommate Lyndsey). We think of our space as a miniature interactive zoo, with 70+ houseplants keeping every room company, plus one bearded dragon, two geckos, two snakes, two cats, two hermit crabs, and two fish that guests love to observe and handle. We have bounced around from place to place each year, never fully expanding our roots, so we intended on this house being a temporary haven like the others. However, the bright space begged for more plants and our love for all things living expanded to reptiles and other small critters that bring us so much joy. Gradually the house became more full, alive, and a passion project of creating sanctuary for as long as we have the opportunity to live here.
