My Wonderful Brent

We were supposed to close on our house today, but as you know that's not happening.

Well, I do have the sweetest fiance ever, and it turns out he's been working on a house-warming present for me for quite some time. He knows how much I've been missing my family and friends, so he made a beautiful collage as a great reminder and tribute to them. He hasn't even gotten to meet everyone in the pictures yet, but has heard stories of how important they are to me!

As you can imagine, I cried when he gave this to me! We've talked about framing some of my photographs as art for our home, and haven't started doing that yet, but he's been gathering up these pictures for a bit for this wonderful gift! This collage is about 3 feet tall and will look good in any future home we have!

Thank you, Brent, for loving me so well!

Very cool!

Even though you don't physically have the home yet, you two will be one no matter where you are.

That is the sweetest thing ever. I can see why you cried. I teared up just reading about your housewarming gift. I'm sooooo impressed. It will look lovely in your future home together, wherever God will have that be.

Thanks for sharing.

Way to go BRENT!!!

So as I was reading this post and looking at the pictures I just started to get teary eyed just thinking of how sweet a gesture that he would go to all that work to make such a wonderful housewarming present. You are definitely correct.....that collage will be a perfect addition to any home!!
