  1. OMG Shannon!!! Thanks so much for the card so I can follow along with your transformation. Uh…can I just say “WOW”. You two are my new home improvement heros! Forget Prop Bros and Chip & Joanna!!!! You’re it!!!! I got you on Instagram now and look forward to more posts!!! Take good care! 😉

  2. Oh Lisa Banta! You are too much. And trust me…we are no heros. We are more like captives of a nicely negligent contractor hoping that this whole thing will be over before the first anniversary of home ownership.
