Truth is it’s Monday again! My resolution to blog twice a week is already failing me! Yikes!
Through the craziness of the holidays and new year, I still didn’t take the time to share anymore house photos with you! We lived in my parents’ basement for about 3 months when house renovations became too intense to live under our roof, or lack there of.
I hadn’t really mentioned our move before, for security reasons, but thought I’d mention it now so you could further understand that “coming home for Christmas” was an extremely exciting time! We could finally settle in again under our own roof!
I fell behind on my documentation of the house as well… it’s like I had other priorities or something! Haha!
TRUTH: The folders of photos I had been keeping were neatly titled “House: weeks 1-2”, “House: weeks 3-4”, etc, and then after baby a new folder emerged entitled “House: what week is it?!”
Here are some of the last photos I had taken around the farmhouse:
I hope you weren’t waiting on my “HGTV reveal”… this reno takes a bit longer than 30 minutes!
The truth is, I still have boxes sitting everywhere.
The truth is, there are STILL stickers on all the windows. And the truth is at this rate they will still be there come spring!
The truth is, the upstairs of my house is off-limits to guests because it is embarrassingly cluttered and the steps have dust bunnies that have been inhabiting that space since mid-summer!
The truth is, we are missing some doors in our master suite… but let’s be real… at this point in my life with a young family privacy will begin to diminish anyway 😉
The truth is, though this house is still dirty, unorganized, messy, unfinished, and undecorated we are loving every inch of our “new” home.
AND THE GREATEST TRUTH OF ALL is that we have AMAZING family and friends that helped with our home!!! Some cooked for us, put a roof over our head, helped with construction, gave us moral support and encouraged us throughout the entire process! Thank you and love you all!
I do hope to reveal each room on the blog and show you all of the hard work. Thanks for sticking around to see the bits and pieces along the way!
