I've noticed that we've gained some new followers as of late. It seems that diligence and dreams come true (our new home) have attracted people and that makes me smile. So, those of you that have been reading, may have noticed that we were missing in action this weekend. When Kenton committed to posting a picture a day, he didn't think about those times that we would be without internet capabilities like this weekend.
Not only were we MIA from the blog, if you had come searching for us, you would have found us both amongst a nearly constant cloud of dust. As we spent the weekend in/at our new home . . . and kid-free!!!
Because not only was this a weekend to accomplish much, it was a weekend to reflect on and enjoy what God accomplished 11 years ago, on July 20, 2002. That was the day that I always say he took the most high strung person on the face of the planet and the most laid back person on the face of the planet and decided to bond them together for life, just to enjoy the show. :-)
That's right folks, 11 years ago, I walked hand in hand under an arch of light-sabers with the love of my life!
Because of this milestone, we had arranged for Kenton's sister's to come up for the weekend to watch the kiddos so we could get away. Little did we know when we made the places that we would be staring down a moving date into our new home with renovations and refreshes heavily on the brain. All anniversary celebration plans went out the window when we signed our offer and we started planning and preparing for a weekend of togetherness, uninterrupted, at our new home doing what we do best, working together as a team!
We had a lovely dinner on Friday night, and spent most of the rest of the weekend camped out at our new home. Some wonderfully sweet friends brought us paint and coffee Saturday morning and we got to work. Although as you've seen, Kenton had already been hard at work all week long, ripping up 45 year old linoleum and underlayment. It was a labor of love, for sure and by 2:30 Saturday morning, the dining area and kitchen had been conquered, to the best of our abilities.
