to-do list revisited


We've already been in our house for 6 months (crazyness!) and I thought it was high time to revisit the to-do list that we compiled right after moving in. In the last six months we've been busy with projects, however it sometimes feels like progress is sloooow. Looking at the list now, we've actually made a good dent in it in the last 6 months! Let's see how we've done so far:
