Happy New Year!

Happy New Year everyone! Hope you all had a great night! We had a very nice evening, we were invited over to our friend's house, and it was a perfect evening with good conversations and new friends and glasses of champagne. Yay, a most excellent start to what promises to be a very eventful new year.

We've spent the last several days working on the pantry. It's almost done - all the shelves were stripped and put back in, with some new pieces created and fit. Everything was primed, the ceiling and walls were painted, and then we had a bit of a colour crises. We didn't really know if we liked the colour on the walls, so we decided to get a different paint colour to do the shelves than the paint we originally bought. We put a second coat on the walls and then painted the windowsill the new colour. And then we didn't like it, either. So now we think we've found the right colour, but nothing was open today, so we couldn't get new paint. We're still going to use the other two cans we've already bought in the laundry room and the kitchen respectively, so it won't be too expensive of a mistake, but we are having a bit of trouble. What we thought was going to look great and "modern country" ended up looking kind of "'50's Diner." Hopefully the new colour will remedy it because we're running out of rooms to put our mistakes in!

We had some snow here yesterday, but only about half an inch. Still, it looks very pretty - these are some pics from just outside our backyard.

Happy New Year to you, too! Isn't it pretty? It rained tonight, so now the snow is all ugly and patchy. Hopefully we'll get more soon! Love Lauren
