One Year in Our House! Lots of Before and After Pictures!

One Year in Our House

I cannot believe we've been in our house for one whole year!!  Where has the time time gone?  I remember thinking in January that our house no longer felt "new."  It just felt like our house and not our "new" house.  I don't know exactly how or when that happens. Anyway, in honor of living here a whole year, I thought I share some before and after pictures.

That's why I wanted it more accessible in my new kitchen.
