Finally...A Picture



So I thought I would finally show you a picture of the outside of the house. I had to included the "sold" sign as well.

There is still a lot to do, but I've made progress and now it's time to get some of the improvement projects done. Not every box is unpacked, but I would guess there are only 10 more to go. I had to leave something for my mom to do while she's here.

I went and picked out paint colors today. I'm ready to put my touch on things around here. I'll be sure to take before and after pictures to keep you updated on all of it.

My parents are only about an hour away. We'll do some measuring, take another look at things and then head to Lowe's in Des Moines. When you move the Post Office sends you a 10% coupon to Lowe's. I look forward to making great use of it.

Thanks for all your prayers during this process and I'd appreciate you continuing to pray for me as I adjust to a new home, new town, new job, new church and I'm sure other new things. I've been pretty overwhelmed this past week, but I continue to think on God's faithfulness and His loving care.

I was wondering what it looked like from the outside. I'm totally jealous of your driveway & garage. Hopefully this summer we will make some major progress along those lines.
Have fun painting! It wonderful to see things come together with your own touch on them. I can't wait to see some before/after shots!
