Made With Love
This summer has been full of home improvement projects around here. You know, small and big ones that have been on our long term to do list that we have been planning and saving for. Since we bought this home five years ago this month we, well really I mean Chris (let's be honest)... has done so much work to our house and with each project he completes it is looking better and better and feels even more like our
home. I love seeing the transformation of our house as these projects are completed, but honestly, there is one project I secretly had hoped he wouldn't finish. After years of walking over the ripped up door threshold from the hallway to one of the bathrooms that looked like it was straight out of the 60s, I joked with Chris, This house was definitely made with love!
. Based on the look on Chris' face and response mumbling about how this and that was done wrong and the inspector never noted x, y, & z, I am not too sure he agreed. LOL However, he finally asked, What do you mean?
I had him follow me to the door threshold. Chris apparently never noticed it, but when he was pulling up this portion or the floor years ago, pieces of cement came out forming a heart shaped indent. It has been a little reminder to me every time I step over it to be grateful to have a home to call our own.
While I do love our completely renovated beautiful modern bathroom that was just finished (goodbye 60s blue tile and toilet!), a piece of me misses that imprint in the floor. Sometimes it's the little things... :)
