2y+4m+1d = a new record

Since I've been married the longest I've lived at one address is 2 years and 4 months. Today is 2 years, 4 months and one day. To be honest, I've been feeling a little restless in our home--I've haven't stayed in one place so long since I graduated high school. Thank goodness we decided we were ready to do some updates because I was so ready. Now it feels new without being new. I can handle that.

The biggest improvement is this:

I am totally in love with our handscraped birch floors. Love, love, love them. I don't even want to put area rugs down. I'm sure the paint helped too.

There's nothing like a spring spruce-up to make you feel great. I've got a few more projects underway: slipcovers, new chandelier, kitchen backsplash. Oh the possibilities!

Love the floors...and I really like your red chairs.

Looking totally fabulous! I hope you've already taught the kiddos to slide around in their socks, because that's obviously the number one reason to have hardwood floors.

Looks awesome! Want to come visit and fix my floors, too?

Wow I'm so impressed. I mean, the green carpet was great but those floors are amazing!
