Well, we did it! We took the plunge and had our entire first floor gutted and re-done. Would you like to see before the house remodel and what it looks like now?
I’ll be taking you on a journey throughout the remodel process. I was amazed at how it all fell together; however, we did have one hiccup. If that wouldn’t have happened, the entire project would have been done in just ten days. What? Yes, ten days. You may ask how we were able to take down a wall, remodel the entire kitchen, put in new flooring covering a span of 2,900 square feet, run electrical, resurface a fireplace, and complete the whole project in two weeks? (breath) It was quite a ride.
Time, where has it gone? Looking back on this past year, it seems to have flown by so fast I couldn’t catch my breath. So much has changed in a good way for me personally, so I can only be hopeful for what lies ahead.
Joe and I celebrated with friends at a 1920’s party to roll in 2020! Luckily I have some hats and a dress from my grandma dating back to the 20’s. It’s just a reminder of time and how fast it goes.
It also makes me thankful that my mom held on to my grandparents’ keepsakes and gave them to me at an age when I could truly appreciate them. These clothes are over 100 years old – still hard to believe. Joe was all decked out wearing this centuries attire, however, we thought a boa added a little something to his outfit.
If you know me, you know I am a little sentimental about so many things – especially teaching my kids kindness and truly being a good example to others. For this reason, you may find inspiring signs throughout my home. Making DIY Wood Signs are a way to send a message to my kiddos every day. It’s also a reminder, not only to me, but everyone that steps into our home as well. A home should tell a family’s story and these pieces give a glimpse of who we are.
The sign I am going to show you today was from a bathroom challenge. Do you remember when I transformed this tiny space from this…
Happy New YEAR! It’s hard to believe 2018 has come to a close and we are already well into March 2019! As the years continue to fly by quickly, I can’t help but reflect on the time passed. I always used to listen to my parents and their friends when I was younger. They would say how time seems to pass like the blink of an eye. When I had children I remember being told: “Cherish these moments because they will go so fast and before you know it those kids will be out of the house and married themselves”. I used to chuckle a bit thinking time wouldn’t seem to pass by as fast as they say.
Now I look back and think, whoa, they sure were right. My first baby is in his junior year of high school and next year will be headed off to college. I get it now, I understand what they were all saying. It seems as though it has been a blink and I wish I could rewind and do it all over again and again.
