Hello! The reason I've started this blog is to document the evolving/continuous changes that seem to occur under (and outside, too!) the roof of our house. It seems to never stop -- which I have to admit, I love and hate all at the same time. I love improving our house. The creative aspect of having a house is wonderful. I also love the satisfaction of finishing something great and then you not only get to see that accomplishment every day, but you actually get to live in it. I think I might be addicted to that satisfaction... It's the driving force that keeps me going. Which directly leads to the difficult aspect of owning a home. Always feeling like there is more to do; and more items on your to-do list, typically means more money, which is the thing I really dislike the most. Why can't money just grow on trees?

So this is for my family and friends, especially those of you who do not live in the same town; those of you looking for ideas, inspiration, an escape, or just someone to relate to; and last but not least, us. There's nobody else with whom I'd rather share my first house! This start is for you, ATT.

Without further ado, welcome to our (first) home!

We have lots to do on our to-do list, on top of all the things we've already done. So there are lots of exciting pictures coming soon! Also, I'm still learning all about Blogger, so don't be surprised if the blog's appearance slightly changes from time to time... Just like my house, I'll know when it's just right!
