I still vividly remember the evening my husband and I took possession of our first home. It was a Friday night in late September, 2009. A BEAUTIFUL night. We scurried around town all afternoon finalizing the close, heading to the lawyers office to pick up the keys, until we finally found ourselves excitedly driving up our street at about 6pm for the first time as new home-owners.

For those of you who have checked out my first post, you'll know that my husband and I have nearly two years of renovation, decorating and DIY stories to share (not to mention the whole planning-a-wedding in between thing...more on that another time). The most difficult part for me right now is deciding which stories to share...and in what order! So, if you're reading this, and you have…Continue
