He's 50 (part 1)

Today is my husband's 50th birthday! Happy Birthday, Steve!!!!
I've known him since he was 17. It seems like yesterday since we met.

Our daughter, Laura, took us out to dinner to celebrate. I shot lots of pictures, but I left the camera in the car. It's storming really bad outside and I'm not about to go outside to get the camera, so I'll show pictures tomorrow.

Until then, here's a photo of us together at a wedding not too long ago.

Steve and I at a wedding.

We didn't intentionally color coordinate. Sometimes it just happens, and then it's too late to change into something else.

I'm getting Steve a new band saw for his birthday so he can create beautiful woodwork (along with his many other woodworking tools) in his man cave garage.

Here it is, as of today.
Front of garage.
Side view and back of garage. Check out that cute little porch! It's adorable!

Here's what it looked like exactly a month ago:

Isn't it pretty? I am so happy for him. It is a dream come true for us. We've always wanted a barn (I know that sounds strange) and this is the closet we're ever going to come to having one. I keep teasing him that the upstairs will be my quilting studio. He said that if I wanted to I could bring my sewing machine upstairs and sew, especially if I had a big quilt and needed space to spread it out everywhere. He's such a sweetie! I may take him up on that!!!

Tune in tomorrow for pictures of Steve's 50th birthday celebration.



  1. Happy 50th to your husband! Will look for the pictures later today!

  2. Happy Birthday Steve. I have to say I think your barn will be bigger then my house. Your going to have fun it the barn doing all the things for you lovely wife. LOL
