Our First Anniversary!

Wow! I can’t believe it’s been a year since we moved into our new home! We have created so many memories here in such a short amount of time! We even survived Harvey, so very grateful! Thanksgiving was our first official dinner here, spent with family and friends. Afterwards, we held an open house celebration with a live band! Next event, we had our whole family here for Easter, egg toss and all! In between all this, installed a concrete driveway, side walk and stone garden patio. Some inside projects, customizing our pantry, laundry room and master closet. Wow! Sounds like a lot! Huh! One of our greatest memories was during the heat of summer! Fourth of July concert, featuring, family members jamming with their musical instruments. What fun! You see we are not all about just work! We do have some play time! Ha-ha!

To celebrate I wanted to share some pictures of our home décor. I like changing things up to reflect the time and seasons. So grab a cup of coffee and enjoy! Happy 1 Year Anniversary to us!

  1. What a beautiful post! I am continually inspired by you. Can you believe we FINALLY got all of our belongings to Six Little Acres? I’m sitting among a gazillion boxes. So much to do, and seeing this post, now I need a seasonal wall! Thanks for the beauty you share.


  2. I love everything you have done/decorated, you really have excellent taste! I also noticed you have several set of dinnerware, another thing I love. Thank you for sharing your lovely home with all of us!


  3. Your home is so beautiful and you decorated it so beautifully! I can’t wait till I purchase my own home. We are currently living in a rental home and we have decorated it beautifully too. But we feel so limited to what we like to do which is more. I’m hoping next year God willing we become home owners so we can enjoy more. Your postings are always inspirational. Looking forward to your future postings! Have a blessed day!


    • Thank you so much for your comments! I am happy to hear that even though you live in a rental you still decorate it nicely. I know I would do the same and have in the past. I pray your dreams of having your own home will come true. God Bless you, sincerely Elizabeth

    • Yes my cabinets and walls are smooth. I do plan to paint the walls in the future and because the walls are super smooth it will be a task. Thank you Connie for following us and for your comment, appreciate it very much!
