We chose a neighborhood with built-in conveniences that has made life simple and enjoyable — life is very good these days. We are grateful to have all of this, especially now.
Instead of opting for more land (with lots of upkeep), we opted for the fun stuff.
We love entertaining our friends each weekend so our home improvement efforts take a back seat to porch sitting, overnight guests and lots of family visits.
We’ve come a long way to make this house our own but we are still a couple of years away from being completely finished. BIG projects are on our radar which will make the house feel less builders-grade.
We’ll be exploring new lighting, flooring and tile. I plan to redo the stairs, the railings and add some wallpaper! And of course, find the right furniture for every nook and cranny – even if it’s vintage and needs a little TLC. (See all of our furniture makeovers here).
