The Blossoming Bungalow

Dalton and I really enjoy our
special “day dates” we try to make time for; day dates due to the long distance
between us. Last Saturday was one of those special days. My birthday had passed
earlier in the month and for a birthday present, D had graciously laid down his
life (hehehe) and his hard earned money in exchange for two l-o-n-g hours of shopping at Hobby
Lobby. He wanted me to pick out whatever I’d like for the house—I was so
excited. J
Unfortunately, I panicked! I
guess being a penny-pincher has taken its toll on me; I didn’t
know how to spend the money! Eventually, we left with two bags and a frame for
the wall. J
Afterwards, we drove around the
community–I am taken with Jefferson City’s historical sights and feel. We
enjoyed a yummy buffet at one of the local Chinese restaurants and later
browsed other small shops. Lots and lots of fun! J
Before we began the trip for
me to be dropped off, I tried to take a few more (better) pictures of the dear
place I will one day call home. It is looking quite lovely—Dalton’s hard work
is making each room brighter and cheerier! I will begin bringing more and more of my things as our
wedding day approaches.

    Eeeee! It is so sweet–so many blessings. Yes, I cannot wait to have sweet friends (and new friends) over. D and I both can't! 🙂

    Al, when you look at the picture facing the sun room there is a full sized fridge in a nook to the right. 🙂
