Honestly, it isn't fair to say this is the after pick. Except for new paint and roof, we haven't really accomplished what we want to on the front. We work on the landscaping daily and what was once a dense jungle is slowly looking better. I know it's a process, but by the end of this summer it will look so good!
We are so, so happy in this house. Every single day one of us remarks how much we love it, how happy we are here, how beautiful it is. We love it. Just last night Brad asked me, "Did you ever think growing up that you would be married to a Seminole State professor and live in this house with 3 kids?" I told him not in a million years. Because I didn't. I could have never imagined that this would be my life. I'm not sure what I thought my life would be, but whatever I thought, what it is is so much better.
