Our year in review

We had an eventful year this year. Of course, our most significant event this year was the birth of our second daughter, Aubrey Reed.

We did a lot of things to our home this year, but of course, we will never be completely finished. Even with the never ending to-do list, it’s fun to watch the house become our dream home.  Here is the list of things we have done to our home this year, in no particular order.

Closet spaces:

The only true issue we have had since moving in is poorly laid out closets. All of our closets were nicely sized, but with only one shelf and one rod, all the space was not being used. We enlisted the help of my dad to add closet rods and a center shelf in the girls’ closets.

Then, we added a rod to the bottom of my closet, and my super creative and smart hubby added LED motion lights to mine and his closet.

Aubrey’s nursery:

We found out in March we were expecting again, and we created a shabby chic nursery in Emorie’s old nursery. Most everything in the room was either re-used, ordered from Etsy, thrifted, or DIY’d.

Hardwood flooring: We also got rid of the last of the horrid green carpet, and put hardwood in our master bedroom.

We also completed two not-so-major projects.

One was the addition of a shelf in our hall bath.

The other was the purchase of a larger dining room suit for our dining room.

Outdoors, Michael and my uncle removed the side pasture fence, as it was in poor shape.


What a busy year we have had! Projects for next year include landscaping, a new sidewalk, and fixing my laundry room.
