When a man loves a woman…

…he renovates the main bathroom as a Christmas present while she’s traveling around the world to adopt a daughter. 

New paint, rearranged lighting and towel fixtures, new faucets and drains, and new caulk and sealant on toilet, tub, and sink. New moulding top and bottom, new registers and venting, and a deep clean (wire brush, etc) of everything.

I always try to do a household project for my wife when something huge happens in our lives. Bringing FangFang home is a huge Christmas gift for our family. I wanted to have something special for my wife on her return. Adoption trips are so tough emotionally and physically. It’s nice to have a bright, clean, and cozy space for a shower or bath at home… 

So thankful to my wife and all of the others who have worked to bring this beauty home. 

Perhaps My Favorite Christmas Song

Above: Simone Martini’s famous Annunciation from the Uffizi in Florence, Italy. Not my favorite annunciation image, but one of the most iconic.

Below: Sting’s Gabriel’s Message, a 1987 track from the charity album A Very Special Christmas. It’s definitely top three for me as Christmas tunes go… enjoy it.
