I decided to do this blog as a record for myself. Who knows if I will ever be able to build a new home again in the future so I wanted to document this. I think it also may turn into an outlet for my thoughts, as while I'm thrilled and confident this is the right thing, I get so nervous and stress about every little decision. The ongoing kitchen counter (in)decision is a prime example :). I really want this house to turn out the best I can get it to be!
I also think blogging this process has been another way to enjoy it. I'm not the most patient person and by writing about things that are happening it gives me something to do and will hopefully make the waiting a little less painful.
