The Running List

This is a running list of home renovation projects that need to be done. We have come a long way in our mission to make our house a home, but we know that this is where we will be for at least the next couple of years – and we want to make it perfect. This means, creating a kitchen where Trey can cook happily and comfortably, while I sit within view so that we can talk. Β It means going to thrift stores and antique stores to hunt for special pieces. It means framing all of those things that I’ve been putting off framing for years and years. It means getting rid of things that don’t serve a purpose or don’t bring me joy. It means that it’s a time to experiment and play and boy, am I excited.
