It looks sooooooo much better now! I used some repurposed frames spray painted with my buddy...ORB, I framed a monogrammed napkin with our last name initial, and used ORB again, to spray paint some dollar store birdies. All of the photos were just printed off of my computer.
And I was up to other mischief. I recovered an old velvet chair...that you don't want to see. I was in denial on this one. I thought "WOW....looks good for a first timer". So I happily took a pic to post.
I was really, really in denial. You know the "new mom" kinda denial. Where your newborn "just has to be the cutest child ever...no, really...modeling agencies should be knockin' down my door" That kind. And my chair was the cutest-stapled and glue gunned-slipcovered-with-a-drop-cloth-chair .....EVER. And then I saw the pic.
Maybe I will post a picture of the chair as a joke...one day.

Since his death, I have been through a lot. I have gotten a divorce...the process was over a year...and it was and continues to be abusive. However, now that I have remarried, it does not phase me one bit.
My life has a bright future now and I am moving on.
Since meeting my dreamboat husband, we decided to stay in the house he owned. We could use a lot more room...yes, but we are choosing to stay on a smart financial path for the time being. At the same time, I am extremely proud of the home we have created for our children in such a short time. This house marks the beginning for both my husband and I. It is the house he bought right before he and I met right after his divorce was final. Here are some pics I have taken through the past year. Thanks for hearing my story for the day. :) It helps to "talk" it out.
