Thirteen is the number of years (as of today) that Papa Builder and I have been married. So much has happened in those intervening years. Joy and loss, vitality and illness, huge projects, every day monotony, disappointment and stunning accomplishment.
I feel so privileged and honored to have such a dear partner in life. He's smart, funny, handsome, talented, confident, ambitious, a loving and generous father, a committed and sincere husband.
This homebuilding project has tested us in ways that no other project we've taken on has before. And we're coming through still liking each other. I think there's a lot to be celebrated in that accomplishment!
