I did not know that my husband was handy when I married him . . . but I am tremendously blessed by Andrew’s ability to tackle any project and do it well.
He left you in his latest post with our new beautiful built ins – all put in with his hands . . .
And we lived with them like that for quite a while . . . but with the birthday coming it was time to stop lazing around . . .
I am not a decorator.
I was slow in the process.
I tried books, but did not like the look . . . so we went with very few books (we have other bookshelves being planned). And we went with some items that are meaningful to us . . .
Each shelf has little insets of meaning . . .
And little personal touches . . .
Reminders of who we are and who we hope to be . . .
Within these shelves you will find . . . the first letter Andrew ever wrote to me, my family Bible, a book of Common Prayer from the 1800’s, Shakespeare’s entire collection, scripts of plays that I have been in, reminders of how we want to have open hands, intentionality, and Colton’s adoption cup.
We love our shelves, the storage, and the possibilities ahead.
