saying goodbye with love

As the days grow closer to spring, I know it means we will be leaving our beautiful little home to start a new beginning. I thought it'd be fun to show the before and after of our remodel of our current home.  When Gus bought the land over 4 years ago it had but only a horse barn on a few acres. We decided to convert the barn into a little studio I like to call our rainbow happiness home. It's been a fun and crazy journey building, filled with lots of spackling and 90's rock music in the background as we hammered nails. Oh Gus how I love you! He truly is a great man. We have learned SO much from what we have already built and I'm so excited to build our dream home together on our new land. My heart is filled with gratitude for all that we have accomplished. 

"It takes more, more than a hammer and nails to make a house a home"
