One Year Later...

One year ago today we scraped together every penny we had in the world to buy this (click here for a walk down memory lane):

You think it was rough outside...check out the kitchen:

And the living room (it didn't come with the shoes...well, not all of them):

Oh the difference a year makes!

There are a handful of vignettes like this, livable spots in a house that otherwise still screams "moving day." Our bathroom is back to looking pretty much like it was before they started down the long and winding road to fixing the radiant floor. Because workers have been in and out every day, we haven't moved into our bedroom yet...so here's where we've spent the first few nights in our new house:

As of this morning, the tile, toilet, and glass wall are back in, so we should be able to move into the master bedroom today. We've progressed to perhaps 98% moved from the temporary house and 30% unpacked. There's still a long way to go. I was hoping to go back to work tomorrow, but with so much left to do and the cabinet and lighting folks coming tomorrow, that's not going to happen.

As I sit here typing, I can't help thinking how surreal it is to be sitting here in a space that wouldn't even exist if we hadn't had a vision and then poured our hearts and souls into bringing it to life.
