We moved into this new house last June and promptly started renovating everything in July. We have been here now for 9 months, completed a ton of projects, and are still plugging along. Overall the experience has been largely positive. I understand that DIY is not for everyone, but Andrew and I are having a great time working… Continue reading Before & After: A Full Home Progress Update
SPRING IS HERE! (And I am really sorry for the corny alliteration. I couldn’t help myself…) I am so excited. Being cooped up in the house with a busy boy and a newborn is not my idea of a good time. We are spending every possible moment outside. The latest “activity”: I dig up a shovel… Continue reading Spring: On Scripture, Sleeping, & Sowing.

I instantly loved the layout of the bonus room in our new house because it is right off the den… Close enough to know what’s going on, but I don’t have to actually be in the room to supervise kiddos.

It took some time to find what fit and I have to constantly remind myself not to get frustrated. I know, I know… “It took nine… Continue reading Trending: Postpartum

I… Continue reading Repurposed: The Thrifted Hutch
She is here! Our daughter was born on January 30, 2017. Even as I type that, I get a little teary… partly due to hormones that are still settling, but mostly due to that fact that I am completely overwhelmed that we have been given such a blessing. I could go on and on with the sappy… Continue reading Natalie Emolyn.
