Goodbye 2015, it’s been a fun ride!
We bought a house, started a blog, and went to Europe…. and that was just the summer!
We’ve made some awesome progress on the too–updating light fixtures, updating the kitchen and bathroom. Matt worked on some more behind-the-scenes projects like putting up a knee wall in the attic, ripping out yard after yard of useless cables from our basement, and hauling a bunch of random crap out of attic.* We also hired out some important work like replacing our boiler and basement windows.
So what’s in store for 2016? I’m hoping to tackle the dining room, living room/family room, and bedroom. Matt’s goals are slightly more practical; he wants to get our garage functioning and we already have a mason lined up to fill in the cellar entrance in the spring. Hopefully we’ll also be able to make a dent on the landscaping a bit this year once everything thaws…. in like 5 months.
To kick off the new year with a bang I signed up for Apartment Therapy’s January Cure… although I already sort of failed today since I still haven’t changed out of my PJs… oops.**
So bring it on 2016! I’m ready for you… me and my PJs…
*Included: a slightly decaying roll of carpet, a piece of bamboo, and an emergency window ladder.
**I did totally take a shower though so it’s not like I didn’t do anything.
