    1. Thanks, Clarissa! It’s so fun to look back and see it all.

  2. Congrats Amanda.
    Isn’t it funny how you sometimes feel you haven’t accomplished much as the to do list is still so long, but than you look at old pictures 😉 Great advantage of blogging IMO.
    You’ve done a great job so far!
    I am nearing the five year mark as well, might have to steal your post idea!
    Greetings from Germany

    1. Thanks! You definitely should – it was a really fun post to write! 🙂

  3. You really have come a long way! Your home is so beautiful! This is my first time reading your blog and I can’t wait to follow along!

    1. Thank you, Heather! So glad you’re here! 🙂

  4. Love to see all the progress you’ve made in your home over the past few years! Such beautiful transformations. The kitchen makeover looks amazing! I also just love those curtains in your living room. This gives me hope that little by little we’ll finally get to the point where our house is all put together.

  5. We are in the process of getting ready to move into our new home, and it needs some work (mostly cosmetic, thank you, Lord, lol). Paint, carpet, ect. There’s a lot (a LOT) I’d like to do in future (I’m looking at you, kitchen), so I’m taking lots of pics now.

    Your home is gorgeous, never be ashamed of it.
    Love your blog!

    1. Thanks, Tammy! 🙂 Good luck with your new home!

    1. Thank you! The kitchen has come a LONG way! 🙂

  6. It’s amazing what you’ve accomplished in only 5 years…it’s beautiful! I especially love your living room and that chalkboard in the dining area!

    1. Thanks, Roxanne! 🙂
