he is really not serious *at all*

He is SO not this serious.

Those of you who don’t know my youngest son might get the wrong impression about him based on recent images. Could be a pre-teen phase.

At least I HOPE it’s a phase.

Or, it could be the fact that I’m simply taking too many pictures lately. Testing out new skills. [BTW, the above image was taken at 8:00 pm at night. First outdoors and then inside (b/w images below).]  Before attending the CONFIDENCE workshop last weekend, I would have sworn there wasn’t nearly enough light to use at that time, this time of year:

our deck build :: week 2

Things are moving along quickly!

week 2 deck build

The entire deck was framed during Week 2.  And truth be told…

week 2 deck buildweek 2 deck build

It had me freaking out a bit.  My husband Tony had wanted a BIG deck.

week 2 deck build

And it is big.  Very big.  But… I’ve since come to terms with what is sure to be an “expansive” deck.  I’ve already warned my husband this means we will need to host many gatherings – and as introverts, this is not our typical MO.  So I’m stating it publically to help hold us accountable.:)

As usual, New Creations is doing an excellent job – wait until you see what’s been going on this week!  I’ll be sure to have my next update posted in a more timely fashion (you’ll find my previous deck posts HERE and HERE).  Until next time…

Wow! It does look big. How exciting. Looking forward to seeing how it turns out. Really – you guys are introverts? I thought you open up your garage to the neighborhood every Halloween?

TOTAL introverts! (If you’re into personality types, I’m an INFJ and Tony is an INFP.) I had to laugh at your Halloween comment… when “serving others” there is a higher purpose for me; I love helping people feel connected. So when passing out the cider & treats, I am focusing on what I can do to make others feel welcome instead of on my uncomfortable feelings.
