One Year Later

It was a year ago today that Mike and I made the journey to Wichita to sign a serious stack of documents and became homeowners.

I’ll give you a little throw back! Remember the pixie??


The first thing I did once we took possession of our home was vacuum it. I will always love having this picture of me so happy and just vacuuming away.

It was about a month later (on my birthday) that we loaded up our little house in Sterling and made the drive to Wichita.


It’s so hard to believe that it has been a full year since this house became ours. I fall more in love with it everyday and I am constantly dreaming of what project will be next. I feel like we have tackled so much in one year.


And now, my favorite transformation…


Those white cabinets sing to me every morning. I also soak up all the trim painting I did over the course of our year. Only two small rooms left with zero motivation. This hallway transformation is still my favorite trim progress though. I also love the fire pit we added to the backyard.

If you’re feeling really nostalgic (like me) you can go back through our “Journey to Wichita” tag and you’ll find all of our house updates, decoration sagas, and our adventures in moving HERE

Happy 1 year anniversary, home ownership! You’re a wild and crazy journey with so much excitement, frustrations, and mostly adventure. I love that this anniversary falls right around thanksgiving. We couldn’t be more thankful for the roof over our heads and all the support we’ve had in our decision to be in Wichita.

Happy Day!

Love, The Jaderstons
