Its so hard to believe that a year ago my house looked like this:
Dining room looking into the living room
Garage with my lifes possessions
Living room looking into the kitchen
Now the Master
My how fast a year goes by! Most days I forget what my house USED to look like – how dated it was at one time. Some of these rooms aren't even recognizable to me – I had to think about which room it might have been.
I still remember that feeling – I had just spent all this money becoming a homeowner and, at the time, all I had to show for it was a very cold construction site. My family and I spend last thanksgiving MOVING all my stuff into the garage. Christmas was spend ripping up carpet and expanding walls. New Years eve there was no big party or midnight kiss – that was a day completely engrossed in paint.
I don’t think I have ever worked so hard in my life (besides on that front flower bed:) and all the while my parents were right there with me. Slugging through it without a complaint one.
Looking back reminds me just how grateful I am that they are my parents and that I got to do this along side them.
