So, there's my excuses. Forgiven, right??
First, let's talk new house.
We loved our old house SO much. It was hard to leave. I loved my kitchen (disclosure, I miss it). I loved that it was a ranch style (disclosure, my legs miss not having stairs). But we absolutely love our new house too. It was the right move for our family, and the best part is that we have a huge backyard that we enjoy immensely. When you live in the South, the outdoors really are another room for a good part of the year. So having a private, big yard has been a dream come true for us.
This would probably be a good place to post some pictures. I don't actually have that many! I've spent so long working on the kitchen (which we hope to remodel in the next six months or so) that I've sort of slacked in that area.
So here is one picture of the exterior. The shutters and door need to be repainted badly, and I want to eventually add some sort of portico or front porch. But the to-do lists never end with me! :)
So. New idea. Over the next few days, how about we take a tour of my new house? I'll show you some befores. I have a few "afters/in progress" pictures. And I'll tell you some of my plans. That way you can sort of take the journey with me as we make this home our own over time. I'll try to tackle a room a day. This will be the week of the new house. Sound good?
And then, once we get that done, I'll tell you all about the awesome people I've been working hard with over the last few months to come up with plans for their spaces. We've got some fun makeovers coming. So stay tuned!
