Well, yesterday marked the one year anniversary in our house. We have come a long way since move in day. The latest excitement is new ceilings! You have no idea how much I disliked those pink ceilings. This past year has taught us how to wallpaper, install flooring, plumb a kitchen, and garden. It has also taught us patience. Not only with the renovation learning curve, but also with our selves and our budget. Our house may not be fancy, but is full of memories, patience and love. We may not be able to whip a house together as fast as Chip and Joanna Gains, but we took a page out of their book and filled our house with a special kind of magic.
