Living Room {Before and After}

As many of you know we moved this summer and bought another fixer upper. I will be honest and tell you that this one has been so trying in so many ways. I won't get into all of the details but rest assured that the pretty after pictures you will see in the coming weeks did not go down like a happy and cute episode of hgtv Fixer Upper. It's been hard and I am so thankful to be on the other side of the story to now show you the place that we will call home. There are still many things that need to be finished but I want to go ahead and start documenting our progress and I can always show more pictures along the way. 

BEFORE


AFTER





In the living room we added a window to create more light and balance. I think it makes all the difference in the world! We also took out the carpet and added in wood flooring that matches the original wood floors throughout the rest of the house. The side you can't see in this shot will be saved for later because we are not finished with it but there was a wet bar that we took out and are still deciding what exactly to do with the space. We had planned to create a faux fireplace with space for a tv above but the budget didn't allow for it so we are going to need to get creative. In case anyone asks the paint is Revere Pewter at 25% and the trim is SW Pure White.

Junebug is {walking}

 Two Friday's ago {September 19th) our Junebug woke up completely determined to walk on her own. She had made up her mind that even when she fell she was just going to get right up and get back to it. All day long she did this. By Saturday morning she was mostly walking with very little falling and crawling. We were all so proud of her. The big kids kept cheering her on and holding her hand when needed.








This is the face of determination!

Our Home {tour}

This past year the Lord has been preparing my heart for something big and something new. All year I have been nervous and excited in anticipation of what that would mean for our family and this last week we found out. Matt got offered his first head coaching position and we couldn't be more excited about it. I am so thankful the Lord was so gracious to prepare this heart of mine to be at peace about the whole situation. We don't really have any of the housing details worked out other than our current home going on the market in the next few days. I sure am going to miss our first home and all the memories that we have made here. It will always be a special place to me. Here are a few before and after photos of our first fixer upper.















Hopefully I can add the other rooms later.
