Big News

In case you haven't noticed, I've been a bit preoccupied lately and haven't been as active with either house projects or on the blog over the past few months.  I'm happy to report that I have a wonderful, tiny excuse for my overall lack of renovation motivation-- WE ARE HAVING A BABY!!!!  

We have wanted children for many years, but it just hasn't happened.  We have waited and prayed and been to a thousand doctor's appointments over such a long time, so this amazing news is pretty overwhelmingly wonderful.  I'm so thankful!  

AND, we're having a girl!  I'm all about surprises, and finding out what we are having was a fabulous surprise-- just not one that I was willing to wait for:)  

Thanks for sharing in our joy... and for hanging in there with me as I recover from pregnancy exhaustion!

Family Christmas Photos

Our dear friend Jeremy took our family photos a couple weeks ago. I don't know about you but getting pictures together with family members is never easy, especially when little ones are involved. Last year I brought along large blue balloons to keep the kids engaged. This year there wasn't much time to pull any dramatic stunts together and we decided to keep the pictures simple. I wanted to focus on who were are as a little church family. So, this year we took our pictures right after church in our Sunday best. 

Here is a sneak peak…….

I love how the pinks, reds, blues, and browns brought the picture together. We are also so grateful Jeremy is willing to put up with our shenanigans each year.

Friday in Manhattan

Friday has finally arrived!!! 
The weather is crisp and the leaves are falling beautifully. I am so excited to cozy up with my favorite weekend reads and new yarn.  This is the perfect weekend to knit some Christmas projects and work on our family Christmas cards. 

Did I mention I am on the board Mockingbird and we have a quarterly. If your looking for Christmas gifts that are thoughtful and meaningful, look no further then  These beautiful quarterlies are only 42.00 for the entire year, what a deal. 

The lastest issue is on Relationships. Who doesn't love a little insight in this area. 

Happy Friday!!!
