Our whole residence has been sparsely embellished since we have been going to promote in 2020 and wiped every little thing clear. We’re engaged on the new life plan plan, however so long as we’re right here, I’ve determined I have to personalize our house not less than a bit.
I texted my design savvy pals with heeeeeeeeeelllllpppp and with their steering have determined so as to add two huge wood cabinets. I’m picturing framed photos of our travels, a spot to place Christmas decor, and possibly a plant or two tumbling over the ledge. I’m grateful for a useful husband as a result of David jumped proper on it. He took measurements, purchased wooden (and a desk noticed), and acquired to it. Can’t wait to see the after!

We had music and video games for the youngsters (Kubb is a all the time a success), an lastly acquired to make use of the moveable grill I acquired David for Christmas.
Someway, although I’ve lived right here for 14 (!?) years, I’ve by no means been to the Financial institution of America stadium. This was such an thrilling first expertise. The power was excessive, the youngsters cherished it, and Charlotte FC received!
