happy last day of march and pool house progress

hi sweet friends! i am not sure where the month of march has gone...i am kinda in shock that tomorrow is the first day of april! i have missed the blog, but life just seems to have been crazy busy! but i had to share some new pretty that we got up today.... say hello to our beautiful new barn light:) jeffrey put this beauty up in the breezeway that attaches the barn to the pool house...and it is pretty much perfect. well so is the roof that my sweet hubby designed. he just continues to amaze me with his skills...he designed and built this all on his own. and as i was painting all of the lathe, (insert gritting teeth face here), i was just looking at all of the angles and how it attaches to the barn and then wraps around the pool house....my mind just can't even comprehend how he does it. he is amazing and i am one lucky girl to have someone that is able to totally make my dreams a reality. so let's just focus on all of the pretty that is surrounding the beautiful light and what you see that is finished....and let's not notice that it is cropped in REALLY close because there is still so much to be finished, (insert mouth open crying face here). but i just have to look back and see how far we have come to remind myself we will get there. repeat we WILL get there. like my daddy says, eat that elephant one bite at a time. the barn light is from www.lampsplus.com, to visit them just click HERE....it is the RLM Radial Wave 7" Textured Bronze Outdoor Hanging Light ---Style #12T97....just in case you need a really pretty light in the future. it is seriously even better in person, and is just what i need to motivate me to finish painting everything that is cropped out in these pictures.;)

  1. I just found your blog thanks to Kelly at Talk of the House. I have sat here reading your previous posts. I had a dear sweet cousin with Down Syndrome. So I understand...also I am the grandmother to an autistic 6 year old. When he was born we had no hint of what would lie in the future but God is Good and he brings us along, sometimes kicking and screaming.:) And Maggie Rae is my birthday buddy....very special people are born on May 17th I know about four and all are precious. Thanks for being so transparent in sharing your life.

  2. Came over from Kelly's blog too and have read backwards several posts. Your home is amazing, not just cuz it's pretty, but that you've done so much yourself. You've given me a kick in the pants I've needed to start painting my rooms and get 'er done!
