A year in review

Blogs can be so informative and inspiring, but they are also an incredible place to document your journey, which is the #1 reason I have this blog.  Recently my husband said, “We didn’t really do much this past year, did we?”.  Well, hunny – yes.  Yes we did.  And that’s why I have this blog.

January we recovered the office chairs, built new shelves in the pantry and painted our master bedroom.


February we spent mostly on our master bedroom installing the plank wall and gallery frames, but we also helped my sister, Monique with her fireplace makeover.

March is vacation month for us,  but we did get the new dining room table and chairs as well as show off the fancy sliding door trim.

April was all about getting out of winter as it usually is and being over anxious for Spring.  We did tackle cleaning and organizing the basement, and I finally painted our PITA closet doors though!  I love those basement shelves and as an update they are still so sturdy and functional!


May is when things get fun for us and we get outside a little bit.  We added edging to the flower beds, built a vegetable garden, dealt with our friendly racoon (repeatedly) as well as other pests.

In June it was awesome to reveal the brick wall we built over Memorial Day weekend.  So technically it was a May project still! This is when things slowed down for us though.  I spent the summer yes, puttering around the yard and playing golf, but also working on projects for my sisters wedding, which was really fun and just gorgeous!

In July we finally hung some art in our naked bathroom and in August we disappeared entirely! 🙂  In September we installed our new pantry light (which I constantly want to leave on because I love it!) and my sister got hitched!

October finished out with a spruce up to our patio furniture before winter and a new dining room sideboard, which I noticed I never posted about (but will now 🙂 ). During November I showed the units we added to the office.

December was….crickets! But it was good and it was fun and we had a lovely holiday with friends and family!

So there it is.  A post I wasn’t going to write, but am glad I did because this is what it’s about – the stories.  Our Story. I hope 2014 was a successful year for you filled with lots of joyful memories, not only of projects completed, but friendships made and smiles shared and all the love in-between!
