My husband totally agreed.
He encouraged me to create a checklist or a to-do list. (He knows me so well! I love a good list, and I love even more, checking items off of it!)
I wanted to share some of our list with you, and elaborate a bit on it!
Everyone's list is going to be a bit different, since everyone's house and land is different.
We are blessed to have enough land for the girls to run and explore on, but it does require a bit different maintenance than a suburb house. Land was one thing that Justin wouldn't give up when we were house hunting!
Getting the house and yard ready is important to us, as we host a couple of different parties at our house through the year. And oddly, we enjoy yard work. Crazy- I know!
So, here is a list of where to start!

Clean Up Debris
Before you can dive into your checklist, the first thing you should do is clean up debris. Clean out your gutters, first (That way you are not creating extra work for yourself!). Then you want to clean up all down limbs, any limbs or saplings (small tress that have come up on your own) that need to come down, leaves, and any other trash that may have blown into your yard over the winter.
We don't have harsh Winters very often here in Georgia, so we sometimes get lucky and can do some maintenance on this part during January and February!
Clean Up Your Driveway/Sidewalks,
Hey Ya'll! My name is Amy, I am a girl mom (times two), married to one of my favorite guys, a daughter, a Jesus follower and so much more. I love preworkout and a great sweat, I collect books like trophies, I love to cook but hate a dirty kitchen. I love grungy country music, bell bottom pants, turquoise (the mineral) and converses. Our house is full of love and laughter as we navigate this busy life together, focusing on keeping the important parts of life the biggest parts, and building a healthy and safe place in our family of four!
