I’ve noticed something about life recently…. How many times have you found yourself saying, “My life is too busy to do (insert activity here),” but you don’t really feel like you are accomplishing much of anything?

Welcome back for the second installment of my home tour! My home has two stories in it, but most of the remodeling we’ve completed in our home over the last 21 months has taken place in the downstairs portion of the house. I’ve done a few small projects upstairs, but it remains mostly in its […]
