Before and After - Outdoor Furniture

I love my outdoor furniture that Brandon bought for my 26th birthday; however, we have not been that great about bringing it in from the weather so it needed a face lift...  I love it even more now!

House Hunters

So Brandon and I are officially looking for our first home!  So exciting and a bit scary at the same time.  There are so many things to consider...
1. Location - we love where we are now... close to everything and everyone, but at the same time we want to get back to our roots.  We miss having horses, land to roam, big front porch and being able to actually see the stars at night.  There are still stars at night, right?
2. New or Old? - This actually isn't that hard for us.  We both love older homes.  They have a story and character and just need some love and attention.  And that love and attention usually means renovations.  So knocking out a wall, for example, leads to fixing the flooring, ceiling, trim... the details, big or small, can multiply very quickly.  While it's very excited to think about renovating a home and making it exactly what we want, we also know that we both work like crazy and have so much going on that we would have to somehow find time for our new home.
And so the list of decisions go on and on... making an offer.  Finding the right lender.  Too many things to name right now.
