Flashback Friday - Summer 2007

1307 South Ola Vista has undergone quite a transformation since we moved in 6 years ago. It’s still not a grand palace, but we love it so much and are so grateful to have found our place in the world.

Our remodel “officially” began in October 2006 and ended at Christmas 2008. Not so great for a while, but in hindsight soooooo worth it. These photos remind me of how much I did NOT want to be going through the mess and inconvenience of a remodel on a budget. What girl wants to live with a Porta Potty in their driveway and their laundry room in a makeshift shed outside? Please!!!! But, even with plywood walls and mattresses on the floor, we had two healthy, laughing kids who thought it was amazing to live in a construction site and we had a roof over our heads the entire time. In times like these that may be all you can ask for. We are truly blessed to have so much more!
If you're lucky enough to be at the beach . . . you're lucky enough!
