I can hardly believe this is our second Spring at our home.
This year I knew exactly where to anticipate all the beautiful bulbs blossoming.
Pushing their way through the cold hard sod long before the trees show their leaves.
The daffodils are beautifully yellow.
The lilies are beginning to strengthen their stems.
There is green everywhere.
And it’s so beautiful.
We have made a home together.
Yes, our first memories as a married couple will always be housed in that downtown Detroit apartment.
Hearing the traffic race by.
Seeing Canada across the river from our window.
Getting attacked by angry squirrels in the dumpster.
Walking to Tigers games.
Biking to grad school with Kevin every morning.
It was a great summer.

But this, this is our home.
We have made it together.
Settled into habits and traditions together.
Opened our bedrooms to family. and teens. and friends.
Hosted two Pastors’ Families Christmas open houses.
Had countless teens walk through our doors each week.
Sure there’s carpet I could do without and that insane rose wallpaper I was planning on taking down months ago, but this is our home.
And we are thankful.
how awesome is this!
We’ve officially made this a guest bedroom.
With a lovely double bed.
Chest of drawers.
It’s always available. :D
