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...
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...
Beauty in the Chaos

Beauty in the Chaos

I will be the first to admit my life has been kind of insanely busy as of late. But in the best, best way possible. I used to try to write on a normal, frequent basis about what was going on in my life, going on with our house, going on with the theme of...
Decking Over the Pool!

Decking Over the Pool!

Remember that time we got a tree trimmed and the whole tree ended up being dead so the tree trimmers put it in our dilapidated pool for us as a “favor”?  And then we decided to burn the branches, resulting in a bunch of scorched charred trunk sitting in the bottom of our pool? Here...

Chalkboard Countdown Support

I think I’ve mentioned it before, but for those of you who don’t know, David has been working on his MBA since the week Evie was born (August 20) in addition to working at his job full-time during the day.  Add a 165 year old house, two rambunctious dogs, a crazy cat, a newborn and...
What A Nursery Looks Like After 6 Months

What A Nursery Looks Like After 6 Months

Sorry for the lack of blog posts of late; I started work again and Evie’s been sick for almost 6 weeks now.  So needless to say, we’ve been pretty sleep deprived and updating the blog hasn’t been the highest priority (sorry!). I thought it might be interesting to give y’all a glimpse of what life...
Family Dresser

Family Dresser

  Most of the furniture in Evie’s nursery is new (well, new to our family… aka from Craigslist!) but there’s one piece that has a lot of meaning to me and I hope it will mean something to Evie one day.This dresser belonged to my mom.  She bought it at an auction in Richmond when...

4 Things I’ve Discovered About My House Since Having A Newborn

Today our little girl is officially four weeks old and I thought I’d share a bit of our experience as a family so far.   1.  A baby turns a house into a home.  First of all, since this blog is mostly about our house, I’ll tell you having Evie has completely changed the way I view our...
Painting the Family Room- Part 2

Painting the Family Room- Part 2

  In addition to the paint itself, my sister-in-laws tackled another daunting project: removing the crazy little brackets in the doorways downstairs.  Now those brackets were STURDY… as you can see from the picture below (from when we moved in last year), they can definitely support my weight.  They were nailed, caulked, and perhaps wood...
Starting Our Legacy

Starting Our Legacy

Every Thursday I share something on my blog that inspires me, and this Thursday is definitely the happiest post I have ever written or will probably ever write:   That’s right folks, we’re expecting our first baby!!!!!!!!!!   If you’ve seen our House Hunters episode, you know that a big part of our decision to...
