Mimi Sue's Cottage

A home is much more than a house built of lumber, brick, or stone. A home is made of love, sacrifice, and respect. We are responsible for the homes we build. We must build wisely, for eternity is not a short voyage. There will be calm and wind, sunlight and shadows, joy and sorrow. But if we really try, our home can be a bit of heaven here on earth. Thomas S Monson

Hi Mimi,
I've been MIA, but thanks for the tip about the oil cloth from IKEA. I can't wait to see what you do with it.
Congrats on the cement projects. They turned out great!
And to answer your question...the wedding was in Long Beach in 1946. : )
xo,
Mary Lou

I agree completely with your thought! The memories, good times and learning experiences with our children make a house a home!
