"A Moving Story" Chapter 2: Let the building begin!

after Chapter 1, about six months passed...

until now!

a spot for the house was cleared and prepared...
the slab was poured...

and now things are beginning to take shape...
I just look so forward to sitting on this front porch someday...
(it will be covered soon, hopefully!)

the view from the front door looking out...
the lake is a little (A LOT) low,
 it's just been SOOOOO darn hot here!- not even water wants to be outside!

can't wait til these hallways are filled with family photos
and artwork!
(and most likely a few little hand prints here and there- but that's
the "good stuff"- precious memories!)

and a view out the kitchen-
I really love to cook!- and can't wait to enjoy our family meals here...
and share special ones with our sweet friends...

and did you notice?
some of the wood is a *sparkly* turquoise!!
Ooh, I did!- and I'm in love! silly I know...
but, after all- it really is just "the small things"...

Have a wonderful weekend!
Many Blessings!
