OK, so we won't end up closing this Friday, but next week is soon enough. Here is my kitchen island that was rocked yesterday. I jumped up and down for a long time after seeing this. I love progress! You can also see my bamboo floor that is just begging to be cleaned. I also have to say that I think the paint color is very altered in this shot. So ignore the paint, or picture it more golden yellow than what it looks like.
Here is what is dark in the background in the above picture. My pretty backsplash. And even though it's not pretty right now. All those boxes hold my new appliances. My husband sold many cows to get those boxes here. Oh, how I can hardly wait to put them to use.
An even closer shot - see my pretty red sink - it's pretty even though it's covered in construction dust.

After so much wet, cold weather - today was such a treat. The warm sun felt so good. All five of us hung out around the house all afternoon. While the kids spent a lot of time just playing and running around, I had to smile everytime I looked up to see one of them pushing a broom of their own will, trying to get the house cleaned up. These kids have been such amazing troopers through this long time of transition. I hope country living is all they have dreamed it up to be.

Happy Anniversary!


Eight years ago we married in Lubbock, TX at Broadway Church of Christ.We met on our way to Peru for a medical mission trip. Our last names were next to each other alphabetically. So our plane tickets were next to one another's. I love the way God had us meet. I knew within two weeks we would marry.
I have always loved to walk into my husband's pharmacy and listen to him interact with customer's & co-workers. Before we had kids I would meet him for lunch at his pharmacy. I would just watch and listen around the corner for several minutes before he knew I was there. I love how good and kind and fun he is with people. People from all walks of life.

I love what a fun dad and uncle he is. The stuff he comes up with is hilarious!

Just before we left for Peru, Trey had just bought his ranch . His dream was to raise cattle and one day build a house. Nine years later, I am happy to see his vision coming true. He has had cattle on the place all along, but the quality has greatly improved to something he takes great pride in. And in about two weeks, construction on our home will be complete. I know this all means so much to him - but knowing this - makes it touching to me that he was willing to let us live wherever I needed us to. It took some time for me to adjust to the idea of living so far out of town. He never pressed, just waited for me to fall in love with the place he knew all his life.

I love this man. It is a privilege to take care of him and our family. My cup overflows.....

Looking forward to many, many more years with the man I call "Husband."
