Aiming for progress, not perfection.

will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus."

be still my heart.

roses and chocolate and fancy romantic dinners with the one you love are images commonly associated with next week's holiday of hearts.

cleaning ladies? not so much.

until now.

landon, crazy incredible, sexy, amazing, fantastic genius that he is, got me cleaning ladies for valentine's day.

today, a team of women will take over my home and deep clean its guts out. we're talking dusted fans, wiped down baseboards, scrubbed shower grout and sanitized floors. all the things i don't have time to do, well, ever.

during this glorious process, landon will be watching the children while i get a manicure and pedicure (a gift certificate he got me for christmas) and drink starbucks and go shopping.

i am overwhelmed with love.

excuse me while i go faint.

So I've been a stalker of your blog for quite some time now (I found you through Cassandra's blog.) I have never left a comment, but I couldn't read this post and NOT leave one today. Oh!My!Goodness! What an absolutely perfect Valenine's gift!! Having someone DEEP clean your house while you get a pedicure and your husband watches the kids sounds heavenly! Your hubby did good! Hope you enjoy it!!
