A home for his birthday

As of nine o'clock central time this morning, my husband is no longer homeless. I have made fun of him nonstop due to his homeless state. He's been frugally bunking it up in some not-so-nice hotels for the last two months - loading everything he owns into his car, then heading to the airport for his weekend trips here. And two weeks from today, the kids and I will join him in our new home. Here's one more look at our house (because now it seems real to me and I'm getting so excited):

We've got some remodeling that begins on Monday (starting with the replacement of all the floors on the entire main level). Once we get everything done, I will post some before and after shots. You will be impressed, trust me.

So happy birthday, baby. No more standing on a street corner with a cardboard sign for you. You now have a place to leave all your junk (at least until I get there and hide it away). See you soon.

You may have been "house-less" for a year, but a townhouse 5 minutes from the beach in paradise can't really be defined as homeless!

Wow, that just LOVELY. Really I mean that. I love the look and bet you'll have lots of fun decorating and gardening and all sorts of homey things.

HURRAY! It is a beautiful home and it must seem weird to know you'll soon be living there!

Oh, and I love bay window. We have one and it adds so much to the house!
