…And So it Begins


Back in March, my husband Greg and I purchased our very first house. A 2,115 square foot, three bedroom, two and a half bath, brick ranch fixer-upper here in the suburbs of Richmond, Virginia.

About a week before closing, we made the decision to start our very own blog about the renovation, demolition, decorating and everything else that comes along with remodeling and living in our first home. Since then, we’ve been working little by little in our free time (which is few and far between these days) to get this blog designed, programmed and tested. And it’s finally here.

We also want to be able to share our home renovation adventures with our families out of state: Texas, Florida, California, Illinois, Washington, Mississippi, Arkansas, Tennessee, Alabama, Indiana, Kentucky, Missouri and throughout our home state of Virginia. Also, some more of our immediate family recently moved down to the Sunshine State. So being able to share this experience with them is an extra perk. You guys get to check out how much painting you are getting out of! Yeah, I’m talking about you Aunt DeeDee!

Here’s a quick photo we snapped on the day we were given the keys. Since our realtor didn’t put a big ‘ole SOLD! sign in the front yard, we thought we would add our own…

We aren’t going to limit this blog to only home renovation projects, no sir!  During this journey, we plan on discussing topics such as interior design, entertaining, gift ideas and all things modern living.

So here’s to learning, loving and sharing … let the blogging begin!

Btw, stay updated with the renovation process by following us on Twitter @7thHouseLeft.

    I haven’t done much “blogging” myself, but this is too cool! You’re momma & Jan have told Willie and I how very creative you are, though. This just proves they were correct! Super neat! Congrats on your new home!!
