The Best of 2015

What can I say, 2015 has been a great year.

As I sit here watching the OU game with the hubs, 
I wanted to reflect back and share some highlights of the year.

In Early 2015 we refreshed the landscaping at our home and it looked so much better!

I can't wait to add more to it.

Adding this little stone walkway just added so much character and made that little side door so much more functional.  We also were able to get the concrete poured around the pool and it looks great. This year we are going to finish up the front and really focus on the back.

After doing my first craft show in May, I decided I had to have a camper 
to set up in. I searched around and found this little gem for $400 bucks. 
I have already started the gut job, and am anxious to really fix her up!

I painted the entire downstairs floor...well almost, I still need to do the guest bath.

The house looks so much brighter and airy. I absolutely love it!

I created my Etsy shop and started my own Jewelry Line. I have even made a couple of sales. I'm hoping it picks up more in 2016. 
But regardless, I'm having a good time, and that's all that matters to me.

I redid our Master Bedroom and bathroom, and it looks exactly how 
I had envisioned it when we first moved in. 
It's amazing what a new light fixture, bedding and furniture rearranging can do!

I got a whole new look in the living room. We added beams that I hand carved. 
We purchased a new sofa with ottoman, rug, and I updated the ceiling fan.. 
I also repainted the desk and the fireplace.

I learned how to evict renters. It was crazy, but now we are renovating out little rent house to sell it.
We have enjoyed it so much that we are going to look into doing this full time.
So I am super excited about that prospect for the New Year.

We have put so much into this adorable little charmer. I have so enjoyed turning this house into a home and I hope the future buyer loves it as much as we do.

We have done all the work ourselves and are just super 
pumped about seeing everything come together.

I hope that 2016 is even more productive and provides a bounty of blessings.
I have been so fortunate and truly blessed beyond measure. Sometimes I need to slow down and really realize how lucky I am. It's easy to get out of hand...

We plan to go to our brother and sister in law's home tonight 
and enjoy some low key New Year's Eve action!

I hope everyone has a safe and fun night. I'm going to spend the rest of the night thinking of some good New Year Resolutions!

See you in 2016!
