Six years ago today, we closed on our house & moved in. It was freezing cold (much as it is today) and rainy, but we were happy to move in and begin to settle in to our life here in Texas. We have made many changes to the house since moving in, but not nearly as many as I'd like to make. Our plans are to stay here at least until K graduates from high school, so there's still time! Here's what the house looked like when we bought it in 2005:
Obviously the before was not taken in February, but the home had been on the market for a while, so I would guess it was taken in the early fall since the grass is actually green. And here is the picture I took of it today.
I have so many more things I'd like to do - like put slate tile on the little front porch & walkway. But we can only do a little at a time, so at least I have a lot of DIY to look forward to!
