The Blossoming Bungalow

Dalton and I really enjoy our special “day dates” we try to make time for; day dates due to the long distance between us. Last Saturday was one of those special days. My birthday had passed earlier in the month and for a birthday present, D had graciously laid down his life (hehehe) and his hard earned money in exchange for two l-o-n-g hours of shopping at Hobby Lobby. He wanted me to pick out whatever I’d like for the house—I was so excited. J
Unfortunately, I panicked! I guess being a penny-pincher has taken its toll on me; I didn’t know how to spend the money! Eventually, we left with two bags and a frame for the wall. J
Afterwards, we drove around the community--I am taken with Jefferson City’s historical sights and feel. We enjoyed a yummy buffet at one of the local Chinese restaurants and later browsed other small shops. Lots and lots of fun! J
Before we began the trip for me to be dropped off, I tried to take a few more (better) pictures of the dear place I will one day call home. It is looking quite lovely—Dalton’s hard work is making each room brighter and cheerier! I will begin bringing more and more of my things as our wedding day approaches.
