A Labour of Love

It was early morning and my husband decided this was the day to create.

The sun was shining, the weather was hot and Chris gathered his tools to build a bulletin board for my “office” space. Generous friends donated the perfect piece of barn board a few weeks ago and I have waited patiently for this day.

To be honest, watching Chris putter and build is one of my favourite things to do.

It’s also one of Chris’s favourite things to do.

Don’t rush him. Just watch him.

It’s a beautiful thing.

The featured image on today’s blog is the final result and the hung bulletin board perfectly completes my little office corner.

Thank you, Chris for loving me in such a tangible way.

It’s not the gift – it’s the love behind it – ┬áthat makes me feel known.





  1. Bravo, Chris. Well done!
