Hi Everyone! As I am thinking about all the projects for next year, I thought I would do a year in review to look back on what we have accomplished this year.
1.) We moved! We sold our first home we had bought together, got married and had our daughter in. This was actually pretty emotional because we loved our first home but we needed more space. My husband works from home when he isn’t traveling and I stay home part of the week so to stay happily married, we need some separation of space! Here is some of the pictures of our house when it was listed.
2.) Lilly turned 2! This seemed like a big milestone. She went from my little baby to a little girl this year. She has a lot to say and so much personality. It seems like these days she can be the sweetest babe ever and giving kisses and hugs one minute and then in full blown toddler terror mode the next! She definitely keeps me on my toes. I always go back and forth, you want them to stay your baby forever but it is so fun to see who they become and get to know them and their little personality more and more.
3.) I started this blog and Instagram. I am definitely more of an introverted personality so this felt like a big step for me. I am really outgoing if I know you well, otherwise it is hard to put myself out there. But I have always loved decorating and starting with a new home just felt like the right time to throw myself out there. It is probably healthy to feel uncomfortable at times, right?
4.) Our new house is starting to feel like a home. Some before and after pictures thus far below. We have painted A LOT…. We have painted walls, stone, you name it we have done it! It has definitely been a lot of work but worth it. I get frustrated every once in awhile because I feel like I should be further along but time and budget won’t always allow this. It is nice sometimes to look at what you have accomplished thus far though and you can see a bigger difference than you thought.
