This Old House

Our home reached it’s 101 year milestone last March when we purchased it! I knew that with age would come character and potential problems down the road, but what I wasn’t expecting was 100 coats of paint. Part of the appeal of this house was that a large portion of it had been newly remodeled. The only room that needed immediate attention was the bathroom. To me, the bathroom in its (then) current state stood for everything a bathroom shouldn’t be… dark, drab, and a wee bit depressing. In April I began the bathroom makeover with hopes of completing it within the month. Little did I know it would take...

18 Month Photos

This morning we had an appointment bright and early at 8 am for Emerson’s 18 month photos! She was very camera-shy and smiled with her tongue hanging out for most of the shots but we had a fun time anyway and got some cute photos in the process. Here are a few of my favorites!...

Birthday Flashback

Happy 1/2 Birthday, Big E! In honor of Emerson’s half-birthday coming up in a few days, I decided to finally gather up the 1 year birthday party photos!

I can’t believe it’s already been 6 months! Thanks to everyone who made this such a fun day!  ...
