Happy New Year!


Long time no see!

 I have been thoroughly enjoying my vacation.
(I hope you did too!)
It wasn't all play and no work though,
we finished a project we started 6 months ago. 

We started renovating this sweet old house in August.
(when I say 'we' it really means 98% Josh and 2% lil' ol' me)
It was quite the 'fixer upper' when we started.

But we saw her sweet potential.

The inside was a bit scary.
How about a few before and afters?

Josh took out that back cupboard and opened up that tiny little room in the back.
It made a huge difference. 


  (oh it was soooo gross!)


Laundry Room
That's it!
Thank you for taking a tour with me.
I am so proud of my hard working hubbie.
This was an after hours project- which meant late nights and short weekends.
We are SO thankful it's done!
And now a sweet family gets to move in!

Now, it's back to school.
 I'm having a hard time adjusting to reality.
Know the feeling?
But I'm thankful for a short week.

I'm off to write down a few goals for the year.
I have a feeling it's going to be a long list.

How about you?
Any goals for the new year?
