For example, when we bought our first "fixer-upper" home just over 3 years ago, our families and friends all got together for a long weekend and painted every room. For 2 straight days about 20 people came and went as we struggled to finish the paint in time for the floors to be redone. There was no way we'd be able to get it done without them. Our floors were a gift from Jon's family and we're incredibly thankful. Our kitchen was a complete disaster with molded floor boards and nasty 50-year-old cabinets that smelled like something died in them. My parents gifted us a remodel as a wedding gift (my dad spent 2 weeks at our house ripping our floors and cabinets and tiling along with Jon).
Now that our first baby is on the way, we've had an outpouring of amazing hand-me-downs and untouched baby stuff from family, friends, and neighbors! I can't even describe to you how excited we are for every single items.
