Our 30th Wedding Anniversary Gift!

Hi everyone!

Well, we made it to 30 Years of Wedded Bliss! There are times where we've wondered how we'd survive but here we are, healthy, whole and happy. You may have guessed by now that our gift to each other is the new house. Not a fancy new car, or a diamond bracelet, or a tropical holiday. Yup, a house! Not very romantic, especially for this special occasion. But it's ours and it's finally a real dream come true. 

We had a quiet day, a scrumptious dinner in and then we ventured out to the country to see the newest progress on the house today. Here's what we found:

The turret is done!

It proved to be a challenge for our crew.

But they figured out all the angles.

So many nooks and crannies!

The roof over the covered deck is started.

And the beginnings of the front veranda too!

Detail on the exterior doors for the garage.

So much fun to see what's happening. Not sure why there is a rope hanging from the veranda frame. We'll have to ask our builder when we see him this week. I love our meetings. He keeps us in the loop and has the patience of a saint while we ask so many questions. And he has a great sense of humor!

Do you like our anniversary picture! Not professional but a true moment in our life today. The stickers we're sporting? Our daughters brought home a lovely anniversary cake with a card that held these stickers that we had to wear all night. They say "I'm the Boss around here" on mine and on dh's" "I'm the Boss, when she's not around!" Yup, they know us well. 

How was your day today?

Hi Penny! We have fun. Some days we want to kill each other but then we work thru it! Can't believe we're at this milestone. Was making me feel so old yesterday!!

Congratulations on your anniversary. I think when we are young we want the flowers and jewelry and as we get older it is the more practical things. I think having a house built is the best of both worlds.
