{Wordless Wednesday} Only Took 4 Years…

As many of you know our house burnt down January of 2007. In January of 2008 we moved back in but still had a lot of projects left to finish.

Over the weekend we finally had our deck built.
{and yes, I realize my husband still needs to take down the xmas lights, lol}

We still need to stain it (and the front door) but we are so happy that it’s done.

We even bought these lights for the walkway and capped the stair posts with LED lights.
