 I’m happy (and relieved) to say that Jeff’s mural is almost finished! One more weekend and I’ll have my husband returned to  me.

I’m super proud of him. He worked so, so hard doing this – from many sketches to the final project – all while working a full time job as well as having two other freelance projects. His dedication and talent are inspiring to me (and yes sweetie, you get a big present waiting for you on the other side, he he). 

I really like Morningside too. It reminds me a little bit of where I grew up in Coraopolis – -everybody knows your business (this could be potentially annoying, as it was growing up in Cory. But I find the idea comforting as I get older). On the afternoon I took the pictures, our friend Bill and I stopped in to Frank’s Pizza to get some lunch. “You’re new here?” the owner (Frank?) said. Jeffrey, the owner of Morning Glory Coffeehouse, held a corn roast to kick-off mural festivities. People kept walking by or driving up to the coffeehouse and saying hello.  Jeff and I marked it on our list of possible places to look for a house.  I may get my garden sooner than I think.
