Sometimes I need to see how far we’ve come.
It’s easy to see the flaws, the projects that are unfinished, the problems this house still has. But when I start to focus on that too much I’m going to make myself look at the “before” pictures. When we hadn’t even purchased the place. When it was still dirty and standing unoccupied.
The difference is quite striking.
(Those botanical prints and the frames were $12 from Ikea, by the way. They THRILL me!!)
