One year ago today, we moved into our little house on a hill. After 6 months of demolition and renovation, moving in felt like a huge milestone. Thinking back on the reno, the things that seemed like a huge deal at the time, like picking the perfect trim color, didn’t really matter. Things that seemed insignificant, like the last minute installation of a recessed light in the shower, are the details that I appreciate every day! The house is still very much a work in progress, especially the yard and exterior, but it feels like home. I love that every tiny detail was chosen by me, for me.
There may end up being other homes for us in the future (and the jury’s still out on that thought), but I doubt that any of them will be quite as special as this one.
