Sophistication is just a dream
Mike and I are not pretentious. At all.
We are also not very traditional. Basically we do what we want.
One morning Mike enthusiastically told me about an idea he had to build a reclaimed wood wall. I have been dreaming of a Starbucks style home for years, so of course I was down. Then he threw out the idea of hanging artwork of our favorite movies.
Movies we quote to each other all.the.time. For example: M – I have a meeting at work today. J – You have a meeting with the Bobs? M – Yeah, I hope they don’t ask for my TPS reports.
After we got the wall put together and the artwork framed, we were hesitant to cover up the wall that has so much character. Then one day I came home from work to see Mike hung the the Bob’s over the fireplace. I loved it, but the OCD in me did not like that is wasn’t completely centered.
Boy, that escalated quickly. I mean that really got out of hand fast.
Just so the world knows, Mike won an argument. Don’t ever let that boy tell you otherwise.
It was funny, taking these prints to get framed. All the people are getting nice pictures of their dead great grandfather or newspaper clippings of an obituary done, then there was us, with these.
I am loving how our Starbucks home is coming together with a touch of us.
