We have been in our home for over a year!!!
I have been asked OVER and OVER to share images of my home and do a virtual tour! I have to be honest I have been putting off sharing photos of my house for a couple reasons. One reason was because I felt like I was not done decorating so I thought I should wait till I finished. Also, the grass/lawn is not in like I would like it to be. But the truth is that it is never finished and the lawn, flowers, and landscaping are always evolving.
The main reason though was because I felt like I would look like I was bragging. I have a beautiful home and we have worked VERY hard to get this home. The Hub’s has put in A LOT of hard work on the construction side. He did so much work himself and put in some REALLY long days (he still does with all the maintenance)! Not only that but we also worked hard to save the money to build this house. I just worried that people would think differently of me once they saw my home. I pride myself on being a “normal” person who doesn’t need big fancy things! Don’t get me wrong I like nice things!!!! But I can make anything nice. It doesn’t have to be new!!! As you see from my blog I love to take old things and breathe new life into them. I have a those things in our new home. I used a TON of old pieces that we had in our old house, pieces I had been storing in the barn, and new (to me) pieces I have found at flea markets, garage sales, and antique stores!
When we bought our little country home we always planned on building on the land. It was always our goal. We settled into our little country farm house and fixed it up and made it our home. It worked great and served its purpose. It is where we brought our littlest cowgirl home from the hospital. I was very happy in that home and there are things I miss about that house but honestly we out grew it. One bathroom and no tub (yes 2 young children and NO TUB) was hard!
I have decided to finally share pictures of my home because I am PROUD!
Proud of my home!
Proud of the work we put into this house!
Proud of my talented husband!
Proud of us saving up to afford this home!
So, starting tomorrow I am going to share the house. I think I’ll break it up into a few different posts to keep the photo manageable! I hope you enjoy!
