We bought a nice house near the city, did some remodeling and called it home.
But the nagging thought of his 1902 farmhouse in the country just kept popping into our minds. There was history there..... a history that deserved to be told.
So we packed up and moved to the country for a time and began the long process of peeling back the years.
Originally I started this blog thinking I would chronicle the progress of our remodeling projects. But the more I wrote the more I realized I was the one being transformed on the inside. Changed forever by the new life I have found in this small town.
We may have picked up our belongings and put them in a new house, but I am the one that has been moved. Moved by the realness of the people here and the closeness of the community and the extraordinarily ordinary things that happen here everyday.
So that's why I blog! To tell the story of how an old house became new again and in the process a middle-aged woman got a little older and maybe a little wiser too.
....and that's what this blog is all about renovation on the inside and out!
