A long time ago, someone sent me a link to a website called Young House Love. It’s about a couple our age who bought a 54 year old house, and in the past 4 years have updated and renovated it to create a beautiful, stylish home for their family. I love reading their website, and at the time it inspired me to start this blog.
I had lost the link until today, when Joanna linked to it on Twitter. I was very excited! I spent part of the evening reading through it again, and getting inspired.
It’s easy to get discouraged about our house because the projects seem so expensive. We don’t *have* $15,000 to fix our foundation. We probably will never have the money to do all the things I want, like tear out all the paneling and put in drywall. I’m trying to be content with what we have.
If you want to get inspired, take a poke around Young House Love, especially their before/after pictures. Hopefully our house will look just as beautiful someday. :-)
