this week's happy:
t-minus two weeks, two days.

gratification.

we've been building this house (not "we" personally, but you know what i mean) since may.

we've owned the lot since last may.

we've been planning this particular house for two years.

i've been planning this house for nearly a decade.

and it's finally becoming that vision i've had in my head for all that time.

i can't stress hard enough the power of planning ahead.

here's what we've seen this week:

kitchen counters, minus the island, are in ...
