Nothing like some good ol' accountability in front of thousands of your closest friends ;-) What we got done In my very first post on Avenue Laurel, we removed the carpet in W's room, then later, installed vinyl plank tile floors in a herringbone pattern (which we are still super happy with!). Removed ... Read More about 2017 year in review, and looking forward to 2018
