My husband and I have a tradition of starting the new year with a list of home improvements that we'd like to complete during the upcoming year. After Christmas, we've eaten too much food and spent too much money, so it's nice to change our focus a bit. Don't you worry, I'll still be cooking! Cooking at home is a great way to save money.
Have I ever mentioned that my husband and I live in a relatively small space? I prefer to call it cozy, but at about 1300 square feet, it's considered small around these parts.
We purchased our (town) home in May 2005, just two months after we jumped the broom. We were and still are so proud to have our own home and we've spent the last 4+ years adding personal touches to our property. I love investing time and money in our home because we work really hard and we consider our home to be our sanctuary. We are so proud to come home to a well-decorated space that reflects our personalities.
I'm adding a new category to my postings: Home. In this category I plan to show some home improvements or organizational tips that really helped us make our house a home. We've had some space limitations and financial limitations that have influenced our choices, so I figured it would be helpful to share our remodeling/nesting/customization experiences (major and minor) with my blog family. Don't be surprised that many of my favorite improvements are in the kitchen! Gotta keep the focus on the food.
