Well well well. Look who’s back. Finally. It’s been 10 months since we bought our 1920’s prairie-style craftsman. Had I known we would still be renovating 10 months later, I’m not sure I would have moved forward, but oblivion is bliss, right? And I have to admit, thank goodness we did move forward, because this house is a dream. It’s still not done, but we’re reaching the finish line… I think.
In the last year or so, I married the love of my life, found out we were pregnant with our perfect baby boy, and now we’re enjoying each and every day with our now almost 7-month-old. We bought a house, started renovating, and learned a hell of a lot. Our project was much larger than anticipated, hence us STILL not being finished. We changed the entire floorpan, knocked down more walls than I’d like to remember, and flipped this house completely upside down.
And guess what. Last November, we also found out we’re expecting baby number two. SURPRISE! That might have been our reaction too… but we’re so elated and can’t wait for Hudson to have a little baby brother or sister to run around with. After all, we DID convert the house to a 4 bedroom, so we need to fill those rooms up… right?
Anyways, It’s been a long, hard road — a new baby (plus another one coming), we both have full time (demanding) jobs (for those of you who don’t know, this blog actually isn’t my full-time job), and we
tackled are still tackling a massive renovation with new decisions needing to be made each day. So. If you’re wondering where I’ve been over the last few months, there’s your answer. Non stop. Going. And going. And going. As you can tell, I set everything blog-related aside to focus on our home, my job, and most of all my sweet baby boy and amazing husband. Thankfully the reno is coming to a close and I’m itching to start sharing each and every bit of it with you guys. There’s a lot, so get ready.
Today I’m focusing on some of our before photos. These will be able to give you a good idea of where we started.
