1 Year In

Today we celebrate the first anniversary of our crazy house. Its been a wild ride, taken several dumpsters, long weekends and nights and the help of many. But we love it. So cheers to everyone who helped scrub walls, paint inside and out, entertain the small child, landscape, pull down trees, paint more walls (and ceilings), take old light fixtures and everything else in between.

Here’s a fun little trip down memory lane (and peeks at things I still haven’t blogged about) and how far we’ve come in one year. I did no cleaning – this is how you’ll find our house most days, toddler filled – life filled really. But it works.

It’s still very much a work in progress – but then again, most things are.
