What do Thomas & I have in common with this family above?
Rewind to this past summer. Thanks to the fact that Thomas & I are in school, we knew we needed to find some cheap & economically appropriate housing. Because BYU properties know that students in this valley wed younger than the national average, they can charge ridiculously high prices for teeny tiny apartments. (Sounds like the HK)
Through persistence but mostly miracles, we were able to land this little beauty. Just steps from campus, full of light thanks to all the installed windows, and unlimited free smells from Brick Oven Pizza kitty corner across the street we realize we are two very blessed young people.
Now back to that first picture. I was raised on Little House & would make sure to scarf down my dinner & finish my chores quickly so that I could watch it at 6 pm MST. (For those of you have been a child before, you know how it is.)
I loved this show and I love it now. They shared good values and taught good messages on the small screen. While Thomas and I didn’t build this house with our own two hands, we are striving to make it a place like the ideal described here.
Side note: Kudos to Thomas for cleverly naming our little abode “little house on the Provo.” (Im a big believer in giving credit where it is due)
Consider this an invitation that the next time you’re in Provo to stop by for a visit. The only thing we love more than brownies or hiking is family & friends in our home.
