How ’bout that storm this weekend, eh? Goodness, when you are inside a house that is essentially nothing more than sticks of wood… Let’s just say there were definitely a few times I thought we’d step out and not be in Kansas anymore!
Aside from the blustery wind and rain, though, Mr. Fixer and I had a nice, quiet weekend with just the two of us. Though work naturally goes a little slower at this rate, it gave us an opportunity for some one-on-one time to enjoy this enormous bucket-list project of ours; and let me tell you, I am amazed and so proud of what we’ve accomplished so far! Okay, so I say “we” pretty loosely–it is really Mr. Fixer that has done about 90% of the work. He is quite the handy guy, and I feel lucky to be alongside him in this crazy adventure! <3
Friends, if there is one thing I can encourage you to do with your spouse/significant other–pick a project and tackle it together. It is such a fulfilling experience to work side-by-side on a common goal, using and appreciating each person’s individual skill set to get it done. (Don’t worry, it doesn’t have to be the total renovation of a house!) And if you already have an experience like this, I’d love to hear about it!
Off to the permit office,
