2016 Goals

Happy 2016!  I’m a bit late in saying that (18 days to be exact), but better late than never. Today’s post is short as I simply want to share our home goals for the upcoming year. So, without further ado, here they are:

1. Organize. As in, clean out the closets that have way too much stuff crammed into them. Here’s a preview of our guest room closet. I apologize in advance, mom, you raised me better.

2. Paint.  The hallway is currently beige but we plan to paint it gray to coordinate with the rest of the house. DSC04789

3. Backyard landscaping. We’ve neglected the overgrown shrubs and decayed railroad ties for far too long. An official plan for this area has not yet been determined, but I have a few ideas. Of course this will have to wait until the temperature is above freezing.

4. Add a front porch gable. This is by far the biggest project (and not a DIY), but it has the possibility to completely change the exterior of our house. Here are a few examples of what we’re considering:

Short and sweet is the motto for our goal list this year. Wish us luck!
