Less than a week until we close on the new house, and my daydreams are already consumed with project ideas. It's a blank slate begging for a personal touch, and I can't wait to begin. In fact, I've been so busy looking forward that I almost forgot to reflect back on our first journey. We bought our first house in 2003, and spent the last 8 years making it our own. I am so excited for the opportunity to add my personal touch to another home and can't wait to share the journey!
