I just have to say that I am so proud of my husband. Since buying our first home 6 months ago he has learned how to do such a wide variety of indoor/outdoor tasks. Repairs, landscaping, building, household renovations, seasonal decorating, and so on. He went from never owning a power tool to having his own shed full of them, knowing how to use them all, and even teaching himself how to build wooden christmas decorations that all sorts of people are requesting to buy. We have both grown so much in this house and our marriage has never been as strong as it is right now. I sit next to the woodstove in the shed sometimes and I watch him as he goes about whatever he is working on and all I can think about is how incredibly blessed I am and how I have so much to be thankful for.
