Dear Raymond J,
Thank you for being so focused and working so hard to make our new home a reality. We have put our lives on hold for this entire year and worked so hard EVERY weekend to literally build our dream, and you are truly an inspiration.
We have learned new skills, such as plastering, woodworking and painting, (as well as problem solving and negotiation!) and in return have grown and developed in our relationship. It is an honour to be your wife and I adore being married to YOU - my best friend. I can not wait to start this new phase of our lives together and to make our house a HOME.
I love you.
*And for all readers (in case you haven't worked it out yet) we now have the official sign off on the completion of our brand new house and are FINALLY moving this weekend!!
**Once again thank you to our parents, family and friends whose lives we have also interrupted to achieve this dream. Looking forward to repaying your hospitality and patience in our new place really soon - and yes I promise not to cook - it's catering all the way!! (Just kidding?!)
