Hectic Life

Dumpster

Beginning To Look Like A Home

Bryan and I went out to our house yesterday. My brother and sister in law met us out there, they loved everything. By the time we got there (around 11), the HVAC guys and roofers had already come and gone. The front of the house’s roof was just…
