March was the one-year anniversary of us moving into our home, so I wanted to post pictures to review all the changes we made this past year. My favorite is seeing how much the boys have grown; Ezra by the door and JP standing in my closet. This is not one of those perfectly staged home tours, but just a fun record of the projects we've done over the past year. I'm sure many more changes will follow over the years, and things are far from perfect, but I'm kinda proud of all our hard work. I think we have reached our main goals of making the place our own, and giving the home a base to evolve on. :-)

Can you believe how much my babies grew in a year???! This next year I want to do less projects and more family outings. They are growing up so fast... if I blink (or repaint the living room) I'm afraid I might miss it ;-)
