#1,642 Staining + Pre-Father’s Day.

I stained the shop doors today! WOO!


That’s some hard work, y’all. For real though. I’m struggling to get up and down tonight.

Now there are just 2 things left to do, and I REALLY need your help. REALLY! We’re waiting on the electrician to wire the lights (can’t wait to show y’all!) and then… Got to get serious about landscaping around the shop. I really want it to feel like it’s been there forever, with a wild English cottage type feeling with any plants, maybe with some sort of ivy or confederate jasmine growing on the walls, maybe some pea gravel? I know we’re planning to add more stepping stones over to the walk-in door as soon as we find some busted up sidewalk or construction site that will let us steal their concrete chunks… But I really haven’t found any specific inspiration images. Do you know where I can find that? Have you seen it? I’ve checked pinterest and found some “meh” inspiration… But not THE ONE. Tell me where to go! I need you!

Tonight we had a little father’s day get together at my brother’s house and daddy requested cherry cheesecake. So I made my first cheesecake ever, the easiest cherry cheesecake in the world, which I actually think is nothing like cheesecake and more like cream cheese whip cream fluff cherry pie. But he ate it and liked it, so I guess I did okay.

You can find the recipe right here.

Tonight was absolutely adorable. We got some 3 generations action with daddy, Clark, and Walker. I felt like my heart would burst.

Happy first father’s day, Bub. What a sweet blessing Walker is to our family.
