31 days challenge

31 days

Welcome to the landing page for this year’s 31 day challenge, hosted by  Nesting Place– in which for the 31 days of October I’ll post a quick blurb each (week)day all related to one topic- and gather them all at the bottom of this post!

Last year I did this too, and my topic was home organization- see all  21 of those posts wrapped up nice and labeled here.

This year my topic is… drumroll please….

31 things I wish I knew in my first month of homeownership

It’s kind of a mouthful, but wait- I made a graphic!

By no means am I at all an expert on homeownership, but I do have some real basic stuff that I really do wish I had known. (Note that I knew NOTHING when I bought a house, including what a DIY blog was). I plan to focus on all things design, decor, and even ultra basic (like, um, you should probably shut off the water source to your outside faucets before it freezes outside). So stay tuned and sit back, because I’m on a regular posting schedule again. Holler.
