 Ciburbanity is simply a mesh of the words of city, suburb, and sanity. Furthermore it is a blog started by Charlotte Smith.

Ciburbanity chronicles Charlotte’s personal journey of fixing up her 100 year old home while artfully hoarding armchairs in her garage when she’s not writing, painting, sanding, laughing or negotiating with her five children.
