Happy House-iversary to Me!

I can't believe it's been one year since I closed on my house. And to think of all of the changes that were made in SUCH a short time. And to think I have so much more I want to do to the house. Here are a few of the updates. It's funny even looking back at these, knowing how much more has been done since this!

The banister/steps on the back deck were added last November. This is USS Back Porch. Many nights have been spent on the deck this summer.

This is Minny's room  - she has a ton of closet space behind me along with a huge sitting room that you can't see. Painted in Heffalump Purple with Sparkles

I wasn't kidding when I said I brought the beach to my house. My favorite room in the entire house. The bathroom.  The blue is the sky, the tan tiles, the sand. the bright white fixtures. This is my little slice of heaven when it's -20 outside!

From the front of the house...no more flag pole, shrubs or bushes in front of the house...Steps/Brick repainted.  All new doors and windows. Phase 3 - remove all rock and make grass only. I sure would like something diff than black trim, but, it will do for now!

This was the start of the awesome floors I did in the house. Refinished the hardwoods DARK, I love them!  So warming.

Just getting started in the kitchen!  This will be the one room I completely redo someday.  You can't see it but, the breezeway/soon to be dining room is behind me...I will post pictures after it's complete next week.

And last but not least, my favorite addition to the new house, a puppy to love. We missed him so much!!!!

I love my home and am so happy life unfolded the way that it did. How amazing. <3
