Two weeks ago I volunteered at Habitat for Humanity for a Franklin, TN building project.  The event was rainy, muddy and bone chilling.

I LOVE the fact that I am the first to call an address home.  I love creating new designs for each one of my personal homes and yes each one has been completely different from the previous.
