Isaac's Birthday and Bowling

So we recently had a birthday celebration. Sussie surprised Isaac with a party at the bowling ally. Ashley and I got the brilliant idea to create team shirts with glo-in-the-dark puff paint. OH YES, bring back the 80's! Ash and I were "Team Linkettes" and Bry and Tim were "Team Big Franks". Funny thing...I accidently forgot the "K" in Frank on Tim's shirt. So his shirt said "Big Frans"!!!! haha!!! We had a blast being goofy. 

The Love of Tim

Today I woke to a crisp morning feeling so thankful. I let Chloe out, fed the animals, made a small pot of hot coffee and checked email. Tim woke and came into the kitchen to hold me as we do in the mornings when we first see each other. I went to sit down and saw Tim on the couch with Chloe giving her the morning belly rub. She loves her daddy. Something more hit me this morning. I just love the love of Tim. Being married to him is sooo amazing and such a CLEAR BLESSING from God. 

Last night Tim had a business dinner so I stayed home flipping through decorating catalogs and websites. Though I enjoyed the research, our home wasn't complete last evening. I find it so interesting how a home feels empty without us both in it. Tim fills the space with happiness, support, and strength. I enjoy each day we are blessed with together.

The Ridgeside Project

Good morning it is! It's pretty cold actually. All snuggled in my fleece and house shoes wishing to stay in bed. 

Tim and I stumbled upon a foreclosed gem in Apopka. Two miles or so away to be exact. It's just down the same main street in a few neighborhoods over. We purchased a new home which feels like our dream home. This week we've been picking out tiles, carpet, wood flooring, and on a mad search for a pool cleaning service. We are hoping to close March 9th so we can get in and get to work. Our goal is to move in by mid to late April. We are really excited to purchase this home together and start a place of our very own!

We will have plenty of space and would LOVE for you to come down to Orlando. We're not too far from Disney. We could be your free lodging for your family! I'll even put chocolates on your pillows. :)
