The past twenty-four hours have been a whirlwind of exciting events. The most exciting is my daughter joined a wonderful friend and her fabulous family for a weekend of camping!! Oh my gosh...I have such a sense of peace and comfort with this venture. Those that know me this is VERY new and a huge event for her, us as the parents and for her grandparents. This weekend is complete and utter trust in God, as each and every day should be. A wonderful blessed way to start our summer vacation!
Our next exciting event was the painting of our bedroom. My husband and I have been sleeping in a Pepto-Bismo pink room for probably four years. To top off the pink was the castly, angels, fairies and our daughter's name written in brighter purple and glitter across the walls. It was a beautiful children's room but not the romantic or serene escape for a couple. My father recently built us an amazing wall storage unit with a great bench seat for me to watch the sunrise each morning. The dressers have been emptied and sold, the storage unit organized and now the new "glimmer" light green paint is on the walls. I've opened the new bedding and put it on the bed. New art work is hung and the curtains and a few other decorative items will be complete following this post.
Originally my friends were coming over to paint because I can't stand to paint. While plans changed. My husband and I spent the time time together while our daughter camped, we moved furniture and painted. We snuggled on the couch and watched television and fell asleep in the livingroom. It was wonderful. I appreciate my friends willingness and ALWAYS being there yet it was a blessing to transform the pepto-bismo children's room into a sweetheart's hide-away...with my sweetheart.
We are off to a great start to the summer! God is good...
