2015 has been a whirlwind!

This year has gone by so quickly!

And there have been so many projects and changes keeping my life bustling along. For one:

We bought a house!!

More specifically, we bought the home we have been renting and living in the whole of our marriage. It's a cozy condo in beautiful Boulder, Colorado, and now it is all ours!

We gave ourselves crazy deadlines to accommodate awesome visitors, and somehow managed to remodel the entire home in just a few months: new floors, new kitchen cabinets, new paint. Just writing it out the list seems short, but it took so much planning and hard work! (mostly my planning and my wonderful husband's hard work!)

Just yesterday we were looking around our home and wondering aloud whether we had actually accomplished so much in such a short time. Honestly, it's hard to remember where it started when we bought it! (I have a nice little folder of photos that helped encourage us while we were in the middle of the renovation chaos)

This Thanksgiving I am incredibly thankful for gifts from God: my husband, our home, the beautiful updates to our home, and the family and friends who helped make our remodel possible (and a good deal easier!).

We have a handful of finishing touches still to complete, but here's a snapshot of our collection of before and after:
