I suppose you could say this whole idea started with this:
That's our house, on the day we bought it, covered in leaves and sporting a serious overgrown bush problem. I always tell people that the best time to buy a house is in the late fall/winter when it's at its ugliest. Believe me, our home is much more attractive in the other seasons!
Over time we've made some changes, but we still have a seriously long list to work on. After subjecting too many innocent Facebook friends to my home improvement endeavors, I finally decided to blog about it!
