Merry Christmas, Happy New Year

It's a bit late, but we're finally getting our "white Christmas"! It is snowing out and so gorgeous, I decided to plug in the Christmas lights and take some pictures before the decorations come down. From our house to yours: Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Also, I never took pictures of our porch and front walk project from this summer. We re-did the screens on the porch and made them permanent, we put in a new screen door and changed the location of the door. We also added a "nub" to the porch with steps and railings (the Myrtle side railing is removable so we can take R2-D2 down the steps), and we added a boardwalk connecting the steps to the front side walk. Also, we added a post light at the end of the boardwalk, something I've always wanted. Here is a "before" picture:

And here it is now, all covered in freshly falling snow and my Christmas lights and garlands:

Two Years!

Two years ago, we were moving our belongings into our house so we could begin living here. It's amazing all the things that we've been able to accomplish in those two years...and how many we still need to do!

I have a load of pictures I'm eager to share, but I'm hoping we'll finish something before I can post them. We've been working on the front porch, adding steps to the left side, and a wooden walk. I'll post pictures of that soon. Also, we've been working on expanding the bathroom and the closet in the master bedroom as well as redoing the walls with better insulation and drywall instead of thin wood paneling.

Here is a beautiful sunset picture I just took a few minutes ago. I LOVE living here!!
