You get a real appreciation for the transformation of a thing when you get to see the before and after pictures. So I thought I’d share a few of our house. I loved the bones of our house before we moved in and could see all the potential it held. I was SO excited to have our own place to paint and decorate after all the rental houses over the years! Surprisingly, many of our landlords let me do some painting and minor remodeling, but when we moved out, I had to say goodbye to my hard work. I watched as white paint was slathered over one of my colorful kitchen walls. That was tough. So, needless to say, I’m thankful the Lord gave us our house! It is truly a gift from Him!
