This week we’ve been working hard to get everything together for our second bedroom. Last night we painted until late, and almost finished! We picked a gooorgeous gray that is absolutely perfect on the walls!
As we painted we talked. About the room, the apartment, and our new life here, and I told Josue how homey this place feels to me. He agreed. We (/I) lived in our last apartment for over a year and it never felt quite this home-like or settled. Maybe it’s because we didn’t really decorate it, or because we knew it was temporary.
But I think the real reason is that for half the year we lived there, we were separated. And nowhere feels quite like home without him. This place feels like a fresh start. A home thats ours. And I can’t think of anything better. Living here…making a life here has felt so natural. And we are so grateful.
My prayer for the six months we spent apart was always that I would never again take our time together for granted.
And I haven’t.
I tell him almost daily how immensely blessed we are and how incredibly thankful I am that we get to do life together.
so in honor of that, here’s a photo I found on an old hard drive recently from our engagement session by Catana Photography.
