The Long Lost Blogger!

As you may have noticed, it has been a really, really long time since I shared my last (and first) DIY project with y'all.  In July 2012, I was so excited about the purchase of our first house and all of the possibilities it had to offer.  I jumped head first into starting this blog because I just couldn't wait to share all of my ideas with blogland.  But, reality hit (really hard) once we moved in and I couldn't keep up with work, life, projects, and blogging.  I stepped away from the blog (not like I was stepping away from much since I only had two posts under my belt) to keep my head above water.  Well, I must say that time flies by so, so fast!  I can't believe as I sit here typing that it has been 15 months since the last time I wrote a blog post.  I have so much to share.  And, while I may have stepped away from blogging, I have been documenting all of our projects with pictures and I am going to try to catch you up over the next several weeks!   

First, let me start at the beginning!  Here is our house!  We got the keys on August 24, 2012 and as I already said, we have been busy, busy, busy trying to transform it from house to home ever since.

Our house was built in 2001 and had one owner before us.  The previous owner was very minimalistic.  She didn't decorate, upgrade, or paint anything.  We were essentially given a blank canvas!  Since this is our first house, we moved in with very little furniture and what we did have was hand-me downs.  So, as you read my blog over the coming months, keep in mind that this is our first house and we are still very much building up our collection of possessions, from furniture all the way down to the little nick-nacks.  I love every improvement we've made over the past 14 months, but I realize that we still have a long way to go...and that is so exciting!
