What A Difference A YEAR Makes ...

Where DID the time go? On this day, EXACTLY one year ago, I was dealing with this ...



The third of four moving trucks. Delivering our belongings from all over the world. Literally.


In the past 367 days, we have done a monumental amount of "stuff" to this place we call home.





Built an almost 600 sq. foot deck.




Furnished the deck.




Put a back splash in the kitchen.





Paint bedrooms ...








Even paint the basement ...
though I'll spare your eyes on the rest of the basement
due to a toy explosion we had just prior to snapping a photo!




Of course, sometimes it took a LOT longer than expected to decide on a color ...


We've also bought a few accent pieces, had built-ins made upstairs in my sewing nook, painted a few more rooms than pictured, had deeper shelving built in the walk-in pantry, put in a sprinkler system, and re-did the girls closets. One of these days we'll even rip out our builders-grade landscaping and redesign our front yard.

Baby steps ... right?

Happy Houseaversary!

It all looks great! I love the colors in the girls' rooms and the final color in the bathroom. And of course, the color of your barstools!

Have a great weekend.
