Hi there! Welcome to our blog. This is my first post and I am not quite sure what to write on this thing, but will do my best. :)

Mike & I got married after dating for almost 7 years. We started dating in high school (much to my parents dismay as he was 18 and I 15) during his senior year. He left for LaGrange College to pursue what he had always dreamed of doing...playing college soccer. He played for a couple of years in LaGrange and transferred to Berry College in Rome, GA where he got his bachelors degree in Business Management in 2006.

We bought our first house on November 28, 2007 and moved in on December 24. There was a lot of work to be done and we each had very capable fathers who we thank every day for helping us get so much work done in less than 1 month. We did everything including hardwood floors throughout, except two bedrooms, new light fixtures in every room, paint on every wall, refurbishing the cabinets in our kitchen, new countertops, new bathroom vanities, NEW EVERYTHING! We ran into many obstacles, but the outcome was the perfect first home for Mike & me! I have posted some before & after pics.

Once we lived together for a couple of months, we decided it was best to go ahead & make it official and get married. Romantic, huh? 8 months later, I became Mrs. Michael Wayne Summers. :)

That's our backstory, so I will do my best to keep up with this thing.
