Four years married and STILL capable of astonishing me...

My boss has been away this week, so I've been working later and later in the evening to help get a major project get completed within the tight deadline.

Which means I've been pretty oblivious to the industrious project my wife spontaneously started this week, taking place in our spare bedroom (soon to be nursery.)

This is the amazing thing about my wife. She's more than happy to spend 18+ hours a day asleep or quietly pottering about when she wants to - but when she's inspired to do a 'project,' it utterly consumes her and she works with astonishing energy and focus.

And so here's an overview of her project - a painting scheme I was incredibly dubious of at first - but which has turned into something stunning and unique.

That's my wife. We've been married more than four years and she can still totally surprise and astonish me with her hidden talents.

Wow that looks wonderful Roland, has she done anything like this before?!?!

Um... Yum! said...

I'm the same way as her. I can spend hours sitting around doing nothing, but when inspiration hits, I'll go full force.

The room looks incredible. She's very creative and talented. :o)

What an amazing vision that played out in the room! I can be like that too; get the wild idea and soon we are shopping for lightbulbs at 3am because we HAVE to have a new furniture arrangement.

Congrats to you both on your expected happy event. When the child is born don't forget the champers to wet the baby's head, and save us some :)

Cheers Roland!!

The room looks great, your wife has a lot of talent and could start a new career as an interior decorator :)

Wow, this looks so pretty. You're like this uber talented couple who'll probably have an uber-talented baby.
Jealous!
