Six Months

We just celebrated our six-month anniversary of living in our blue house. Where has the time gone? I thought it might be fun to look back at what we’ve accomplished these past six months and where we’ve yet to go. Our house looked a bit dated when we moved in, but that didn’t stop us […]

The Great Lighting Shuffle of 2013, Part VII: Everything Else

We’ve finally come to the end of the Great Lighting Shuffle of 2013. We’ve already discussed the majority of the lights within our home, and believe it or not, there are still a couple of lights left: the ones we didn’t change.

The Great Lighting Shuffle of 2013, Part II: Office

In Part I of the Great Lighting Shuffle of 2013, we tackled the dining room light. A new chandelier was purchased, and the old one found a new home in an unexpected location. This week, we’re looking at another strange shuffle. When we moved in our house, the office/sunroom had a way-too-big ceiling fan. Personally, […]

The Great Lighting Shuffle of 2013, Part I: Dining Room

It’s no secret that we’ve been tweaking a lot of the features in our house in preparation for a baby shower I’m hosting this weekend. One of those tweaks was what I like to call the great light shuffle of 2013. Basically, much of the lighting in our house was either moved or replaced. We […]
