a heart of a warrior…

This is the latest addition to our lovely home…

SO, remember when I said how much I like THIS piece from etsy?

you are my sunshine artwork

Well, I decided to do my version of it on some old barn wood that I stole from my brother-in-law. I knew I needed Nathan’s help on this one, so I asked him if he wanted to do a “together” project. I braced myself for the oh-man-not-another-together-project-look….but instead he was like “oh cool”.

THEN, before mothers day he told me he was actually going to do the project FOR ME as my mother’s day gift. WOW- be jealous you people who didn’t get to marry Nathan.

So here it is. I chose words from a blessing song that is my favorite. Every time I sing this part I think of Ella and my baby boy Lincoln.

I bless you sign

I bless you sign

I love it so much. Don’t believe that he actually took the time to do it himself?? Proof is in the photo:

    Love it!!!

  • Double heart, triple stampy, no erasey LOVE IT! This is my favorite song to sing over the kids so I love that you have the words on your wall. Well played Nathan. That is tedious work to line everything up by hand. He is a human letter press! Looks terrific!

    I LOVE this Sarah!! The first thought I had was a friend of mine who just built a house in So. GA. She ‘inscribed’ the dirt with verses before the foundation was poured as well as on the framing before the sheet rock was put in. I just don’ t have barn wood….hmm…

  • sunshine Lewis
