Cale is tucked into bed, Chad is getting his clean on, and I'm relaxing in bed feeling really grateful for our home. Despite a few moments that I've wondered WHY we bought a house that needed to be remodeled.. I'm able to admit that the pros are much more plentiful than the cons. Every change we make no matter how big or small is us making this house our own. In everything we do, WE decide what goes in.. not a previous owner, not some contractor.. WE do! From every paint stroke to every wall knocked down, we're falling more in love with our first home, and that is a fantastic feeling.
