  1. Y'all accomplished so much in a year and should feel so proud of yourselves. It's looking so great. We'll be first time homeowners in a few weeks and I'm just starting to see how much work it's going to be...guess we ought to start buying some tools. You do inspire me!

    Your house was a wonderful second home for me and my sisters on our visit :) I do believe I forgot to mention how much I absolutely LOVE your sense of style. I envy your yellow doors. I will make my house have adorable yellow doors someday, just like yours :)

  10. I love how much nicer the outside of the house looks with just a brighter paint on the bricks. You are amazing, and you have opened up the house so much. I also love your decoration ideas. It's simple but colorful and fun. I've really enjoyed looking through your blog and pictures. You've also given me great ideas for my small space, thank you.
