hey, its a house.

We bought a house. A neat one-story, u-shaped, brick ranch that backs to the ninth hole of a golf course. It's 2200 square feet of . . . well, it's ours anyway! We settled in August and even though I should blog about it, I'm going to take the year off and focus on working on it. Here's what you should know:

1. We love it. (Obviously)
2. It needs a lot of work.
3. Over the next year we're going to be doing as much of that work as we can.

I began tapping away at this blog mainly for myself to track inspiration and write about things that were important to me in the moment. Now that we've got the house, it's what's important to me for this season, so I've decided to focus on it.

Eventually, our hope is to have some great before & after pictures! Mostly because we want to live in the afters.


  1. Caroline,
    That's awesome! The outside of the house and yard look beautiful. I can't wait to see the before and after pictures. As a home owner myself obsessed with renovations I can tell you how rewarding it is to see your accomplishments all over your house. I have my own before and after pictures to post soon of a bathroom we installed in our basement plus finishing the unfinished laundry room. Congratulations on your house!

  2. thanks Katie!!! I'm definitely looking forward to living in the finished product - I know it will only be a few months but it seems like forever away!
