Hope you are well. We had a couple of scary, stormy days here in Joplin over the weekend, complete with Tornado sirens and time in the basement. Thankfully that was the worst of it. My heart goes out to the people of Oklahoma City. Here's to
hoping praying the worst of tornado season is over!
On Saturday we finally got around to switching out some of the light fixtures around the house that weren't exactly in keeping with the time period/style of our digs.
I present to you our before and afters from the kitchen! Buh-bye 90's, hello vintage, schoolhouse charm!
My husband is such a rockstar! Thank you, babe for your handiwork. I am so thankful we don't have to hire electrical work out!
On Saturday evening we had our neighbors from across the street over for dinner. What a lovely couple! We so enjoyed getting to know them better. Leslie is the director of the reference library in town and a published Joplin historian and Dale is an English professor at MSSU, specializing in Tolkien. They are also avid music fans and dancers! Needless to say, we had lots and lots to talk about. They even took us over to their house for a tour after dinner. What a neat, craftsman home the live in!
We have just been blown away by the friendliness and openness of all of our neighbors and can't wait to have them all over soon!
