Our bathroom vanity arrived with a broken leg. Mike took one good look at it and knew it was an easy fix. But me? I saw this as something else. This was a money saving opportunity.

Mike started knocking down walls on Thursday. And by walls I mean a closet and some wall paneling. But he had renovation dust moving in the air. And the sweet sound of 1960s paneling landing in the dumpster. Before I knew it, all the noise and smells and “Daddy, can I help?”s had me reminiscing on life a year ago.

We did a thing! As of two weeks ago, Mike and I officially bought our first house! But not just any house. Mike’s grandparents’ house: a cozy 2-bed 1-bath post-war cape situated on top of a hill.
