Work Day and Family Love

Today was a work day at our house. My consistently amazing and giving husband repurposed our old red front door into a custom built-in desk in our kitchen. I am beyond thrilled with the results and I'm so excited to have another workspace for computing, writing letters, sewing, and more! I will eventually post more photos when I have it all pretty ;)

The girls loved helping Daddy with the project...their favorite days are when he is home all day! :)

He also crafted me this adorable laundry shelf out of the old torn down fencing in our back yard. *love*

We spent a lot of time talking with family via FaceTime...which is always fun. We feel like we are "right there" with them. All of my siblings have iPhones so we are able to keep in touch this way and it's such a blessing.

My brother Scotty came over tonight for supper...which involved more FaceTime with our family in Minneapolis, who had also gathered for supper. It was like a big party! :) He ended up spending the right now, he's sleeping on the couch to my right...Bella is on the couch to my left...and all I hear is the sound of the heater fan. Blissful silence at the end of a busy day.

"What greater thing is there for human souls than to feel that they are joined for be with each other in silent unspeakable memories."  *George Eliot
