Little improvements: the outdoor lamp

It is Holy Thursday today and normally I try not to blog during these last few holy days, but I wanted to squeeze in this quick home update. It's been a really long time since I've done a post on remodeling!

This is a small thing, and maybe it's a little strange to even blog about it, but I'm so excited about our newest remodel--our outdoor lamp!

When we moved in, the last outdoor lamp was looking pitiful by hanging by its wires. Dennis eventually removed it. With all the bigger issues that had to be taken care of right away, we didn't replace the outdoor lamp for a long time. And then finally last summer, we got a new outdoor lamp.

The thing didn't even last more than a week. We had a windy day one day, and the front door blew right into the lamp and broke it--which gave us insight as to how the first lamp got broken.

We said we would replace it, but you know how that goes. Some of the outdoor lamps (depending how fancy you want to get) can be around $80. So we decided to wait. That was over a year ago!

It's always been an embarrassment to me that our house looks so shabby and run-down with no outdoor lamp. So I was really excited to finally get our lamp up!

Single light bulb, no lamp.

The hanging of the new lamp!

We've got light!

It's such a small thing, but our house no longer looks (as) shabby.

Now I can focus on Holy Week.
