Master Bath Makeover!

I’m sitting here, while Joe is working a night shift, in our HOT, un-airconditioned house on another night of dreary, MUGGY rain. Yes, at the end of July, for the second time in a MONTH, we are without air conditioning, in need of a new electrical board and now possibly new parts for the air conditioner,  AND (yes, much smaller of a deal) the kitchen light won’t turn on because the the big bulbs are out… Sometimes, being a homeowner SUCKS, but I must say, I am very thankful for a cooler than normal summer, and I am in LOVE with our most recent project in our home.

So, I am skipping ahead of the many additions, and Hubby-made projects to deflect my un-happiness to our new/updated MASTER BATHROOM! A pinterest project, that turned out better than I’d imagined, and now our GOLD, outdated bathroom, is just how I wanted! Take a peek!

Important Dates and New Beginnings

I’ve had some really special and important (to me) moments in my life. But two that are pretty high up there are March 19, 2013 and shortly after, May 4, 2013. These two days dramatically changed my life forever and have created two wonderful journeys to embark on.

March 19: Somewhat against the advice of our family and friends, Joe and I decided we wanted to start our lives together in our own home. I had moved every year, from home to apartment to apartment, since college and he seemed to keep moving city to city (Milledgeville, Stone Mountain, Macon, Roswell) and we wanted a place to stick our roots in.

 

Looking back on it, I completely understand the fears and nay-says we were getting for looking for our dream home while planning a wedding, it was stressful. But all in all, we consider ourselves very lucky for finding a house in  only 3 months, with a couple of small hiccups along the way. We were just waiting for the sky to drop, for something to go immeasurably wrong, but it didn’t. We bought our dream home and oh the joys it has brought us.

May 4, 2013 – As of today, this was the very best day of my life. The day i married Joe and became Mrs. Glaze.

I always thought, that with a degree that involved a lot of event planning experience and a job that requires a good percentage of my time planning sales meetings and trade shows that planning my wedding would be a cinch. WRONG. It was a stressful time but it turned out just perfect, wet, but perfect.  Yes we tied the knot in the rain, the pouring, never-ending rain, but our “wet-knot” day was the very best.

NOW…after those two days, life is different, it’s an adventure. I’ve learned the truth to the statement: “pick your battles”, there have been sink holes, and leaks and projects, dinners have been made, walls are getting decorated, arguments have been had, laughs have been heard; life as a married home-owner has begun. But more on that later….
