I keep looking at her wondering how her face has changed from kid to beautiful young girl. We said goodbye to Austin yesterday for another few months and I couldn’t help but think these kids are changing to fast. When he is home again they will be completely different, and Piper will have lost the final sheds of baby. We even gave up diapers and paci this week. I know I’m probably rambling but the last 8 months have been rough on our family, and the next 4 won’t be any easier. But my little girls can light up any room and I am so thankful to call them mine.
Throwing it back to two (wait what?!) summers ago because I’m sitting in our living room staring out the window planning flower beds and wishing I could go outside without freezing. Also give me that little Piper Sage back 😭😭😭😭
Sometimes I purchase furniture for my children and I have to talk myself out of stealing it for myself. Lilly’s room is getting a Star Wars makeover that is months away from being finished because deployments are keeping us from getting the walls painted but believe it or not I have plans to take this dresser to the dark side. Hint hint.... paint it black. Until we can get started on it this weekend I’ll enjoy it in this cozy corner. Also, this was $15 on the local bst. You don’t have to spend a lot of money for the home you love. Remember that friends 😉
Brought 29 in with a bang, and by a bang I mean I laid in bed all day and watched tv. Then threw on some clothes and stuffed my face with a few of my favorite people. I don’t know if I’m just getting older or what but I’m so thankful as I turn a year older and look around. I have the best family, gained a great new friend (& her family I love) in the last year, got my best friend back, and that’s just the tip of the iceberg. Thank you to everyone who sent me love today, know you are a part of why I am so overwhelmed with gratitude on this birthday.
Let’s get one thing straight, I’m no beauty blogger. But @myrunwayeyes was nice enough to send me a few products a few months ago and I have to tell you even with my inconsistency my lashes are growing like crazy. Austins probably tired of me going on about them every time I do my makeup but he will get over it. #sponsored
Just need to find the perfect cozy chair, pick up another Edison bulb, paint my hanger white, and my reading corner will be done.
Before Christmas I took the playroom and turned it into a normal living space. Minimizing our belongings gave me the space to put the kids toys in smaller areas (like their cool under the stair fort, or their closets) and you guys it’s so nice not walking into a kids toy mess every time I walk through my front door. We need some more furniture before it’s done in here but so far I love it.
When you live in the worlds most beautiful place it never gets old. Today we celebrate Piper and her love for free willy.
