|My Chandler Barn. Before.|
|It was ugly. I get a medal for bravery, right?|
Spring break this year took us back to the neighborhood where our Chandler life all went down. We stayed with our good friends and old neighbors who live right next door to our Chandler Barn Home. We woke up every morning to the sight of our old beloved house and yard. We drove by really slow everyday, hoping to get a glimpse of something that has changed. But really besides a new chimney, everything is the same. Their swing set sits in the backyard, the chicken coop sits next to the garden in the eastern part of the yard - just like we had it. It was heart wrenching. Ezra told me that he was going to go to live at our "big house" more than once.

I really wanted to take a picture of the house. I'm sure the new owners wouldn't have appreciated the creepy lady with the camera snapping photos in their direction, so my old after pictures will have to do.
|Back patio. After.|
We built a garage, poured a driveway and landscaped the front yard right before we sold it (why?!!) and I never took a picture of the finished project. Blame it on the pregnancy. I was 7 months pregnant and the temperatures were quickly creeping over 100 degrees everyday. When my husband said, "SOLD! We are going to home." I couldn't have pack my boxes faster.
|Do you see how thick our walls were?|

|Family Room. After. The beams were eventually stained and looked amazing.|
I can only hope my kids will forgive me one day for selling it.
