One Giant To Do!

This post is mostly for me. I feel like if I publish something on the Internet, somehow I will hold myself to it. We will see if that works!

Our house is a giant to do list, which don't get me wrong- I live for a project. I love this stuff. But it also keeps me up at night thinking of all the unfinished things I would love to accomplish, and the future plans I can't wait to tackle.
