New House - Then & 1 1/2 Year Later

You can't imagine how excited I was on 12/17/2016.  We signed the papers and got the keys to our fabulous "Builder Basic" home.  This was a home that I knew had tons of possibilities and one we could make our own with some love and a few makeovers.  Living closer to family had been such a desire, so now all my dreams were coming true.

This is what the house looked like when we walked in with our keys in hand and said this is our new home. (All the before images are from the MLS listing.)  Hard to believe how much has changed in just 1 1/2 years.

This year & half has had so many Blessing that it is hard to count them all.  We have had so much fun turning our wonderful "Builder Basic" into a home that fits us to a tee.  We still have rooms to makeover and landscaping to do, but we are getting there.
