Renovation Doozies

First comes love, then comes marriage, then comes.... a house full of saw dust and half-finished floors and unopened wedding gifts scattered everywhere. Oh, the married life! Micah and I have created quite a set of memories already. This past weekend was very productive for us, as far as progressing our house renovations. We invited some friends and family over to help us paint/faux our living room and kitchen, and let me tell you - it turned into quite the party.

Paint was dropped. Sponges were tossed. Clothes were ruined. Pizza and paint mix pretty well, I suppose.

After cleaning up all the sponges and spilled paint, our friends left, and Micah and I began working on the laminate flooring for our living room. (We got a super-nice deal at Floor Decor - only $0.49/square foot!) And when I say we worked on the floor, I really mean Micah worked on the floor. I attended him with fresh peach tea and arranged my candles, photos and other knick-knacks in our bathrooms, since they're the only half-way complete rooms in our house.

But doesn't that still count? I mean I stayed up until 2 a.m. with him.

Our house is actually coming together now. With paint on the walls and floor beneath our feet, it's starting to look pretty good - if I do say so myself.

God has truly blessed me... us. Honestly, Micah and I have been together so long now, I didn't expect to feel much different after we got married. But I'm blown away by the sense of passionate love I have for him, and him for me. It just goes to show that God's Word is truly living, and no matter how strong we think we are, there's always room for growth and blessing. If we walk by faith and trust the Lord, then it will be reflected in every area of our lives.

Plus, the whole sunburn thing is over - and that really makes me feel blessed. Ha!
