Our First Home!

Hey yall,

In honor of our 1-year anniversary of being in out first home coming this month, I wanted to share before and after pictures of where we started and where we are now. Of course, because we are always on the go, there have even been changes since these pictures were taken! But, hope you all enjoy a little glimpse into our constant-work-in-progress!


The “weird” front entry room that no one knew what to do with.

Our first home! Needed lots of love.

LOVE the deck. It’s since been stained an orange color I can’t wait to get rid of. But, in our first year, this deck has already seen it’s fair share of patio dinners and parties!
