 The funny thing about being married for a while is that you sort of fall into this dynamic.  The unspoken pattern of Family Roles.

For instance, when we are getting groceries, Tim's role is to do all the checking-out.  

Mine is to stand behind him and read all the trashy magazines- cause checking out?  It's really a one-person job anyway.  

Anyway, this is what spring is looking like in our neck of the woods lately.  As you can tell, I spend a lot of time in the car. 

Today, we are painting our living room & dining room.  Something about spring makes me just want to Get Up & Fix Everything.  Hope the feeling lasts.  

It reminds me of the verse in the book of Romans, "Behold, I make all things new."  

And He is.

ohh, will there be photos of the painting when you're done? i really want to paint our living room but haven't decided on a color yet. would love some inspiration :)

Yes! I will post photos. Good for you for waiting. My one suggestion for any house would be to WAIT WAIT WAIT- we decided very quickly at first, I got the wrong "finish of paint" and it looked pretty "ehh..." for a while. Very heavy green dining room, yellow living room and brown curtains. We don't have an overhead light in our living room so it was all just SO DARK!!!!! We picked a very light gray and some curtains that let a lot of light through- like it so much better so far. :)

I know, right? I double-checked that picture and was like, "Man the skinny dog and that dirty door make us look super trashy." Ha. She HATES being outside. It's pretty pathetic. Thanks for stopping by!
