One year ago today we moved into our beloved purple house (not that we liked the purple part that much...) I cannot believe how much we have done to this house in a single year. In fact, there are only two surfaces in the house unchanged- the fireplace and the wooden panels running up the staircase walls. Everything else - ripped up, patched, repaired, covered, removed, colored, caulked, demoed, sanded, converted, painted, rewired, plumbed (is that a word?) etc, etc, etc. Also, loved. I love it here. If you haven't come over yet, you. are. invited! And don't think that we are done... that yard will take the next year.
