I’m not one to judge a book by it’s cover, but I would have assumed that this mauve-colored home probably belonged to a sweet little elderly couple who enjoyed quiet nights watching Wheel of Fortune and taking the Jazzy out for a spin around the block once in a while. Not the case! It actually belongs to Better After reader Jen, her husband, and their brand new baby. Since it was really showing its age, they decided on a dose of the home-exterior equivalent of botox: fresh paint, colorful doors and some much-needed landscaping. Now it’s a knockout!
