As of June 30th, we have been living here for one year. The past year has flown by, and although we have been very busy around here making this home ours, we still have much work to do! In case you are new around here, we moved here because we wanted to be in a more convenient location, closer to the children’s schools and many other conveniences. We moved from a new home that I had built in 2003 to a split level home that was built in 1996. This home is smaller than our old home, and has less storage. We did gain one bathroom, and the number of bedrooms is the same, but our old house had a full basement and this one does not, which is what makes it seem so much smaller to us. We don’t really have any place to just put things. And although we did give up a lot when we moved, I could not be happier about our decision! My life is so much easier now, I don’t have to drive as much, I don’t spend as much on gas, and it seems so much easier to get where I want to go. Not to mention that we moved to a great street in a great neighborhood!
I thought it would be fun to take a look back on this past year and see how far we have come in this house of ours. We had exactly one week after the sellers moved out of this house to get it ready to move into. That was not nearly enough time to get all done that I dreamed of doing!
Before moving in, I painted our master bedroom.
