We sort of owe our lives to Nathan’s brothers and dad…they devoted yet another precious Saturday to help put the roof up on the workshop.

Um, the pitch of the roof was a death trap…

Definitely a SLIGHT chance necks could have been broken on this day….but its not any fun with out risks….

I mean….its awesome, right?

Sometimes I just stand in it while it’s raining and admire how nicely I am staying dry…

Not really, but if it rained, I totally would.

We had a good ol’ fashioned BARN RAISING at our house this weekend.

It.

Was.

So

Exciting.

Nathan, his 2 brothers and his dad all helped raise the walls, put in floor joists and put up rafters…all in ONE DAY. This skill never ceases to amaze me and I am SO thankful.

This is the latest addition to our lovely home…

SO, remember when I said how much I like THIS piece from etsy?

you are my sunshine artwork

Well, I decided to do my version of it on some old barn wood that I stole from my brother-in-law. I knew I needed Nathan’s help on this one, so I asked him if he wanted to do a “together” project. I braced myself for the oh-man-not-another-together-project-look….but instead he was like “oh cool”.

THEN, before mothers day he told me he was actually going to do the project FOR ME as my mother’s day gift. WOW- be jealous you people who didn’t get to marry Nathan.

So here it is. I chose words from a blessing song that is my favorite. Every time I sing this part I think of Ella and my baby boy Lincoln.

I bless you sign

I bless you sign

I love it so much. Don’t believe that he actually took the time to do it himself?? Proof is in the photo:

cheers!
