Our journey actually started in February 2010 when we came across this house online during the house hunting process. There was nothing special about it. From the outside, it looked like many others we had seen. We didn't even know what the inside looked like until the first day that we were able to see it in person. But there was something about it that drew us in...
After touring the inside, it was love at first sight. So, we signed on the dotted line and began what has been some of the busiest and most joyful months of our married life.
And on May 30th, I posted our first blog to "keep friends and family (particularly those who don't live in the area) up-to-date with all the changes happening in the 2-story brick house."
So, I want to take a quick tour through some of the rooms of our little house and remember the "before look" and the "after look" that has come about through hard work and much help from family and friends. Most of the "before" pictures were taken the day we first toured the house. And most of the rooms are still a work in progress. But it's exciting to see how far the place has come in just 7 months...

What a blessing this house has been to us in 2010! It was God's gift to us. And I'm looking forward to many memories we will share here in the years to come!
Happy New Year!
And stay tuned for a list of projects we hope to tackle in 2011!
