Fifteen years later, I have my pink house!
Merritt called tonight, to tell me he locked our front door when he left tonight.
Our front door!
With the help of his dad, his brother, my dad, and my dad’s friend, they finished the roof, put in the windows, hung the door, and wrapped our dear little house in pink Tyvek today.
It’s so exciting, after all these years of dreaming, after all the construction materials Merritt has collected…we finally have our own home! There’s lots more to do, but we have a roof for over our heads.
And until we put the siding on, our little house will be bright pink. But since we got engaged on February 14, the day of pink and red hearts, it just fits, don’t you think?
Living with my man in that little pink house will be home sweet home indeed.
Just 1047 hours, 56 minutes, and 55 seconds…
