My Amazing Husband

Before I post this week about the retreat, I thought I'd show you what my husband did for me while I was gone. He's so wonderful!!! I've been a little stressed lately, because unpacking everything and settling into the house has been a much longer process than I anticipated. I'm pretty Type A when it comes to our living space, so I hate not knowing where everything is and having boxes and junk sitting in stacks all over the house. When my house is messy, it causes me to have a baseline level of anxiety underlying everything else....I can't sit down and stop being anxious until it's clean again!

So my precious hubby knew the messy house was making me crazy, and he felt like he hadn't been helping me as much as he should....so he surprised me by completely finishing the kitchen while I was in Gulfport!!! He painted, bought a bookcase and unpacked all my cookbooks, purchased a cool bamboo mat for me to stand on while I'm cooking, and even found some kitchen accessories from World Market to decorate with! (my favorite is the picture hanging next to my bookcase!) Aren't you impressed with his decorating skills? Because I am! I'm so glad I staked my claim on him 5 years ago :)

...and lastly, my new mat! It's a bamboo one he found at World Market. Whiskers appreciates it too since it gives him a non-slip surface in the kitchen now :)
