365 Days of Progress

Its hard to believe we’ve been living in our “New House” for a year now! The past 365 days have flown by.

In one sense, I can’t believe how much we’ve accomplished in the past year but in another sense I get hung up on all the things I wanted to complete. I thought it would be fun to make a list of all the things we were able to check off of our “to do” list as well as make a list of things I’d like to accomplish in the next 365 days.

Check: Done!
