Hi.  We’re The Bunches.  We met and fell in love in Boston, got married in Saratoga Springs, NY, and moved to Buffalo in 2011.


Why do we call ourselves The Bunches?  Well, we each have a nickname for each other: Bunches.  It loosely stems from Honey Bunches, which of course, you guessed it, comes from Honey Bunches of Oats.  Which might make you think we love that cereal, but we don’t.  Don’t get us wrong, it’s a great cereal, but our first and only true cereal love is Cheerios.  Mrs. Bunches likes ’em dry, and Mr. Bunches likes a big bowl of them traditional-style (with milk, that is).  Who knew that one day we’d move to the city that actually makes them?!  Must have been fate . . .

This little blog was started as a way to keep friends and family updated on our life in Western NY, but now that we’ve settled in, we’ve found a new passion: renovating local homes.  So follow along as we tackle new projects and try to stay sane while doing it . . .




  1. Oh this is so great! I am so glad that you found me, can’t wait to read more about you and your life on here. I had heard from Yessica that you were in NY now, I’ll have to get all caught up. Do you have a mini-Bunches? I have so much to read! Where to begin?

  2. I was randomly “researching” how to refinish thin veneer, and came across your chest of drawers refinish and ended up being drawn in to read the whole thing. Why? Your writing style is terrific! Very conversational in the way the best radio interviewers try to be – like having a conversation with a best friend. I imagine you have the personality to match and are probably a ton of fun. Thanks for making furniture refinishing an engaging read. Best wishes, Chris
