Love at Arbor House Lane

Valentine's Day.

Is more than just that.
If you didn't already know or guess.
It is Mr. M. and my wedding anniversary.



Still in love, yeah!

We are the couple in the corner at parties talking to each other.
Not because we didn't want to talk to anyone else.
But that we enjoy each other's company.
We work well together.

You see, it is also the anniversary of our home.
We moved in the year after we built it.

Yeah, that means the year we were planning our wedding, we were also planning our home.

We put everything into it.
Just like our marriage.
Each year we love our home even more.
We make slight improvements to make it more comfortable, more like us.

We were just in our twenties when we started this house.
We had mostly lived at home our whole lives.
What did we know about designing a house?


We took Arbor House Lane from this.

To this!

We did it.


We did most of the work ourselves.
Laid tile.
Electrical was my job.
Oh, and paint, lots and lots of painting.
We put in the tubing for the in floor heating together.
Wood floors installed in three different rooms.
All trim work, windows, doors, floor and ceiling.
Finished the basement.
New wood flooring in living room and study.

I can't just talk about our home.
We also are raising three great kids together.

We pretty much did it all.
We work well together!
