Our 4th Blogiversary!

Crazy to think that we’ve owned our house and been blogging (casually, obviously!) for 4 years now! A lot has changed since then! It’s easy to look at the things we still have to do and feel overwhelmed, so I wanted to write it all out as a reminder of how far we’ve come. And, I suppose, as motivation to keep crossing things off the list!

So, without further ado, here is our master project to-do list! Hopefully, I didn’t forget anything!
