happy birthday to me...


Here is my 30th birthday present in all its glory. Probably none of you know this, except for maybe a handful, that I love front doors. When we go to Lowe's, Home Depot, Expo, wherever...I always have to go through the door aisles. I think a front door can make a house. It has the ability to change the entire attitude & character of a home. So when my in-laws so graciously gave me money for my 30th birthday, I knew immediately what I wanted to buy. A new front door. So off to to the lumber company I went. I pored over their 1,000-page book for days. By the time I was done with that thing, I could tell you every stain, transom, sidelight & glass option known to man. Did I want a frosted glass, etched glass, decorative glass, no glass at all? Should we have a sidelight installed? Should we have a transom put in? Do we get wood, fiberglass, vinyl, or steel? The choices were endless. In the end, I decided on a very simple, fiberglass door with 2 slats of glass. Ben stained it for me & it looks beautiful. It's one of the more plain ones, but I didn't want anything too ornate or fancy. I think this fits our house style, & also makes the house look more inviting. The only thing is, now I can't walk around my house naked. Bummer.
Totally kidding.



Come one, come all, to the house with the prettiest front door on the block,
