After a long weekend of constructing walls in the studio space I am happy to say that I love my bro' and my dad. My dad drove all the way from northern Minnesota to help and my brother gave up plenty of weekend plans.
We worked our butts off and got an amazing amount of work done. The part I enjoyed the most: We work well together.
About 10 years ago my dad helped me to build a house (god, I love wearing a tool belt!). My brother helped with that project also. I've since sold that house and have missed that place beyond words...but this weekend was an enjoyable combination of good memories of old times mixed with new memories from the past two days.
It was also a step into the next stage of my life and I'm glad that I am able to take this step with such important people at my side.
There's still a fair amount of work to be done...but it's getting there! I will keep you posted along the way. Thank you, friends, for being with me each step of the way. ;)
And thank you, Marilou, for taking these photos!
