A New Beginning ~

Saturday we were invited to come and help fix up the new house where Travis and Ashlyn will be living after their wedding.And it is just darling!! I cried with gratefulness that they will be in such a sweet place in a great neighborhood.It was so fun to help clean, paint,and organize with them. And it was even cuter by the time we all left.Fresh paint and love does wonders! Steve was in his glory being needed by his boy. They hooked up lights, the washer & dryer, spackled, painted, and worked in the yard.We are so thankful to be included in the little moments with them. Even Chad and the roommates from Piedmont rode over and pitched in.It reminded me of when they were boys and their friends would leave the bikes on the lawn and come in to play.Chad is thrilled that they will be just a bike ride away,he is really going to miss his "best friend" sharing his room. We were tuckered out but it was a day we will ALWAYS remember! Steve and I smiled the whole way home!!
