I've been 'Reader Redesigned!'

A big thank you to John and Sherry at Young House Love for featuring our back-breaking patio project on their blog!  It was definitely the hardest thing we've ever done to our house, harder than refinishing our hardwoods, renovating our stairs, and adding chair rail and picture molding to our dining room.  I can put together a little cheat sheet on how we did the patio, if there is any interest?

And to those new folks who are stopping by my blog from YHL, welcome!  I love new readers like I love wine.  And that's a lot.  Well, if you keep reading my blog you'll figure it out....

Cheers!
Sara

I just came over from YHL...but from the looks of it, I am going to be hooked on your blog too. I would love a cheat sheet. The Hubs and I are planning to do a patio next spring/summer. We might be doing stamped concrete, but we haven't completed decided yet.

I look forward to reading through your blog! :)
