January 28, 2017: In the past I have celebrated the Chinese New Year, but I don’t need a fortune cookie to tell me that my good fortune comes from the love within this house. Everyone was asleep this morning when I took this photo, but I loved the story the photo told.
We were fortunate to be able to build this house ourselves from the design to the ground up. Everyone in the family helped in some way. Blue is one of my favorite colors and when I saw the siding, I knew that would be the color. Coming to the foreground, the color is also found in the two swings – one for each child. When you follow the line of the swings up to the windows, you can easily tell we are fortunate to have a boy and a girl.
My fortune is my family.
