2 years in the little blue house


Though I'd love to be sharing that we're done with the house, these irises remind me that change takes time.  This is the first time since moving in that these beauties have bloomed, and with them come the realization that a lot has changed in the past two years and those changes have brought with them so much growth and beauty to this little blue house we call home.


We've made progress on just about every room in the house, and checked off loads of things on our massive to-do list.  


This little house of ours looks nothing like it did the day we moved in, and chances are it will look nothing like it does today in another two years.  


Adding a third member to the family will make the pace at which we work on our fixer-upper a little slower, but it will also be such a motivation to make this house a home for our little guy to grow up in.


We're no where near where we thought we'd be when he arrived, but that's okay.  We're content with the progress we've been able to make over the past few months, despite a few set-backs.  We'd rather slow down and do it right the first time, rather than have to go back and fix our "newbie" mistakes.


Over the coming months, we hope to finish the master suite and begin the little guy's nursery.  After that we'll be down to the office/spare bedroom.  Hopefully this fall or next spring we'll be able to do some more landscaping around the outside as well.  


We have no way of knowing how long we'll be in this little house, who knows what the coming years will bring, but for now, we're loving the DIY experience of bringing this little blue house to life and making it our home.  Looking forward to many more projects and updates in the coming years!
