never stop improving

7.30.2014  at 8:00 AM

Probably 19 years ago, I happened to meet my future father-in-law, quite by chance, when Gordon and I were exiting the Contractor's side of The Home Depot. As you can imagine, the Contractor's side...you know, it's down there by the lumber...is not an exit that most people use. Naturally, this chance meeting took Gordon by surprise.

We chatted with Gordon's Dad {aka Papa} briefly, and it's not that he didn't want me to meet his Dad, he just knew that Monika was a talker and he had not quite had "the talk" with his parents about his new Sweetie. 

You know, the one that was older, divorced AND had a child. 

Sixteen married years later, we are still walking the aisles of home improvement stores together and we still enjoy it. The plans, the search for the perfect items, the installs and the finished projects.

I'm so glad that I asked Victoria to snap a photo of us with my iPhone this Spring. It is a perfect capture of how we have spent many of our days together. And I imagine, we'll spend many more days like this, side by side, conjuring up our next project.

I've had this layout laying out and ready to glue down since the Spring, but just haven't taken the five minutes to do so. Sunday, I finally relented and glued it all down.

And as the Lowe's tagline says, "Never Stop Improving." That's what a marriage, a partnership and being part of a team is all about. 

Continue to be the best you can be and never stop...in whatever you do.

    1. I love the story, too. I think I need to do a layout just about the story so that the kids will have that memory of how their DaDa was sweating bullets hoping I didn't say too much...ha!

    1. Thanks Julie. I love photos taken from behind, they seem to almost have more of a story to tell.
