After attending Christ Church Anglican for a solid 10 months, Cash and I were confirmed and joined our precious new home. Father Eric spent many hours with us, mostly trying to make my Baptist-reared mind understand new ideas. In the end, the only difference is the methodology. To that I say I do not think God cares particularly about that as long as you are doing it reverently and with purpose to praise Him.

As you can see the outside of the house was
|What color is that?!|
|painted the rocking chairs!|
|removed the vanity, closed off the door, changed the walls|
|that. wallpaper. ahhhhhhhhhhh|
Okay, so it was atrocious. Luckily, we really did hire the best contractor in Midland, Texas. I couldn't be happier with the results.
|new vanity, sinks, faucets, mirrors, and striped walls (the stripes are gloss)|
|towel warmer, towel holder, new toilet, new floors|
And while in the reno' spirit, I tried to find some curtains that were striped with large navy stripes. They don't exist in case you're wondering where to get some. So I endured the over 200 mosquito bites I got on a Saturday night and painted myself some floor length curtains. It feels more and more like Maine in our living room every day. I. Love. It!
