2013 has been the most eventful and unexpected year of our five years of marriage. It has been stressful, but wonderful too. It has been a year of growth and change–lots of change–and surprises. We all feel…tired and a little worn out, but really really good about where we are right now.
In addition to a lot of small projects or parts of the whole we tackled, we have had several before and afters completed this year alone that are always good to keep us motivated as we start a new year.
Way back in March, we finished turning Greta’s former nursery:
into her big girl room:
And moved to Idaho and fell for this one:
We wasted no time getting started transforming this house. By the beginning of November, we had our first before and after–the half hall bath
And for the last renovation of the year, we tackled our new reading room, almost finishing it up just this month (still need to tackle the floors):
While we miss our first house, we are finally starting to feel quite at home here. Every day we are coming up with new ideas and projects. While the newly finished kitchen was hard to leave behind, our new kitchen is much larger and has so much more potential. We actually can’t wait to take it on with new ideas. Of all the projects, Greta’s room has probably been the hardest to leave behind. We had just barely finished it and she loved it! We’d love to get her new room fitting her personality sooner rather than later–ideally before the baby comes. Which is where we’ll pick up next time–projects you can look forward to from us in 2014. Our renovation calendar is filling up!
