Real Home Tour: 2 Years into Renovating our First Fixer-Upper – making it in the mountains

It’s the not so pretty photos of the not so pretty spaces that I’m not so fond of sharing.

But, because I don’t want pretend that we live in this perfectly dreamy house, because I want to connect with everyone that takes the time to follow along with our journey, I’ve been working hard to share a lot more of our real lives on the blog.

And so, today I’m sharing a tour of our first fixer-upper, giving you a chance to see how far we’ve come and how very far we’ve still got left to go…


My real name is Debra (Debbie Sue). Sarah is a nickname given to me in high school. My husband has always called me that so here in Florida It's all I am known by. I was born and raised in Illinois. My son and I moved to Colorado in 1982. I taught school for 17 years. Then I ran a homeschooling/preschool/daycare until 2006 when I moved to Florida after my son, Bobby died suddenly. He was almost 26. Danny and I live and work at a state park here. I miss the mountains and climate of Colorado. I miss snow and the four seasons. I miss Bobby.

Please Comment. I don't care how long or how short. I want to hear from you.
