Transitioning from Nursery to Big Girl Room

Transitioning from Nursery to Big Girl Room

Hi friends! Long time no talk.  I hope everyone who is reading this has had a relaxing, enjoyable summer!  Our family has been working hard on not overscheduling and having plenty of downtime, which is a real treat compared to my norm of packing as much into a day as possible.  Wilson is absolutely thriving–...

Family Update

At long last, the nightmare our family has been going through is over. You’ve probably noticed that we haven’t been blogging at all lately, and might be wondering why.  Or if you know us more personally, you are privy to more of the story– that our sweet baby boy Wilson has been going through a lot,...
Welcome, Wilson!

Welcome, Wilson!

A little over a week ago now, our family of three became a family of four when little Wilson was born! I had been having contractions for about a month before his arrival but they always stopped… needless to say, mentally I was worn out from thinking “this could be it!” every day for weeks...
Finished Master Bathroom.

Finished Master Bathroom.

Allow me to finally share with you a long-overdue post: the FINISHED BATHROOM! We have had this wrapped up for a while now but I just never seem to find the time to write a blog post.  Sorry for the delay, but better late than never? To remind you what the old bathroom was like:...
Another New Addition...

Another New Addition…

Two years ago today, God gave us the gift of our sweet daughter and made us parents.  These past two years have made the rest of my life to this point feel insignificant… there’s just no way to describe how my heart has grown since becoming a momma. Happy Birthday, Evie Bee! As if having our now-2-year-old weren’t...
Riesling of the Pyrenees Variety

Riesling of the Pyrenees Variety

On Friday, we added a new family member to our home!!! Everyone please meet our beautiful new Great Pyrenees, “Riesling.”  She is about 3-4 years old and from a rescue in Georgia, and we’re in love with her already. She was surrendered to a shelter after hours so we know nothing about her first few...
The Chickens Pay Their Rent...Finally!

The Chickens Pay Their Rent…Finally!

When Lynne first said she wanted chickens three years ago, I chuckled and thought “aw, that’s cute…No way!” Fast forward just over two and a half years, and guess who was scraping chicken litter out from the coop?! My one bit of solace was that soon we would have delicious and healthy farm fresh eggs,...
Chickadees!!!

Chickadees!!!

So on Friday, David and I had a wonderful, awful idea (to paraphrase from the Grinch?  Anyone?)… we took Evie to Southern States, which is having a special where you get 6 chicks for free if you buy a bag of chicken feed. Evie LOVED looking at all the baby chicks and lost her calm for...
Tile Floor in Little Brick Outbuilding

Tile Floor in Little Brick Outbuilding

So when we left off, we had the heated subfloor installed in David’s office/ little brick outbuilding.  (Post here.) Since then, the tile has been laid!!! Check it out! I decided to do a tile from Home Depot reminiscent of bricks but a whole lot thinner (and cheaper, added bonus!) than bricks.  The main goal...
Lessons from Havana

Lessons from Havana

David and I just returned from an incredible week in Havana, Cuba, where we got to experience so many new things we didn’t even know were possible.  Throughout the trip I found myself marveling at the many oxymorons that constitute Cuba… it is a surreal place and probably impossible to fully understand.  And while I...

Things You Can Buy for $34,000

A little bit ago, we got an estimate for simply fixing up our pool to make it functional, and as I am sure you guessed, it came back at a whopping $34,000…  Don’t get me wrong, I expected the estimate to be high (say $20-25k), but not THAT high!  I mean, this estimate didn’t even include adding a...

Kitchen Floor Ideas

When deciding what kind of floor to lay above our new sub-floor in the kitchen, David and I spent a lot of time thinking about our options… Brick Floors Beach Style Kitchen by Santa Ana Interior Designers & Decorators Darci Goodman Design Farmhouse Kitchen by Arrington Cabinets & Cabinetry Timeless Kitchen Cabinetry This was originally...
