Just Keep Painting, Painting, Painting.

What a weekend! We finally got sun-sun-sun and heat both days this weekend and I made sure to soak as much of it up as possible. Saturday was spent at Jordan’s house painting the exterior of his home. The progress has been moving pretty fast even though we only get to work on it 2 times a week and that is only if it doesn’t rain. {which has been happening a lot lately!} But once we divide up all the work that needs to be done, things move smootly. I was in charge of all the little details {I am a perfectionist} such as scraping the windows, cleaning/polishing them up with some Windex and elbow grease, as well as painting the kitchen window and its shutters.
The best part of the day had to be when I was outside monitoring Jordan on the ladder above which was located on the deck. All of my sudden my attention shifted from the ladder to the window directly in front of me. Scotty had gone inside to wash his brushes and used the left over paint to “write” me a message. {of course it was backwards to me, but I knew what he was writing out.}
"I <3 U"
Of course, I did the normal girl thing to giggle and “awww.” Once Jordan got down from the ladder, he noticed it right away and quickly responded “Sarah, looks like you have another window to scrape clean.” I refused to do it… It looked even better that night. I highly doubt Jordan or Scotty will leave it there much longer, but I made sure to capture the moment via iPhone pictures. Stinkin’ adorable!
The boys did all the work on the ladders, while I stood by and worried about them. I am seriously a “mom” when it comes to things like that, but if they don’t care someone has too.
I made it up to them later by making margaritas as a cooling down/celebration that night. And with a view like this it made all the hard work we completed during the day disappear from our minds. It was so calming and romantic. I am in love northern Michigan and also these huge DIY projects. Almost done…  We have such a good time together that I don’t really want it to end.
