Hello everyone! My name is Reilly, my husbands name is Morgan and this is our page. We are a young family of four that live in northern Alberta. We have a three year old son, a daughter who just turned one and a beagle named Baylie… she is nine and yes, her nose still gets her into trouble! Just one of the extraordinary traits beagles have, lol. This blog is where we will post about our new home, our current projects, our old projects, our family….. pretty much anything that we feel people will want to see!
SO! Over the last two months we have been pretty busy. We purchased our second home, left our first home (another post on that soon to follow), took on a couple necessary renovations, a couple non-necessary renovations (sorry Morgan) and I went back to work after a year of maternity leave. I get exhausted just thinking about it all, but I am so thankful that we were able to accomplish so many small victories in such a short time. It all would have been very hard to do if we were actually living in the reno, but thankfully Morgan’s parents offered up a bedroom for us to use. It was pretty cramped in there with the four of us, but we made it work and it allowed us to have some late nights of demo and finishing without waking up the kidlets. With the help of many family and friends, we are now “IN,” but still have a boatload of unpacking to do. Theres a bit of painting and baseboards plus other odds and ends to finish up, but we see some sort of light, lol.
In our next few posts we will show some before and after photos, talk about some products we used and maybe share some DIY projects that I’ve been wanting to tackle for a bit. It’s all going to be very exciting!
We are thrilled to be able to put our mark on this beautiful house and turn it into a home that our children can live in, laugh in and grow in. We hope you all enjoy the posts and come back often to see what we have been up to!
