Kitchen, Before and After

Even though the painting did not go smoothly I am so glad we didn't wait and got it done right away. We had the cabinets painted a basic white, the walls painted White Sand by Benjamin Moore, and the fridge is new (from Frigidaire, because it seemed like the best deal.) Eventually, we would love to replace the stove and the microwave with stainless steel versions to match the fridge and dishwasher. It's a great little kitchen and one of my favorite rooms in the new house.

Back on the Horse

We have just gone through one of those seasons. Lots of blessings, but lots of trials too. Topped off with a four night stay at the hospital and my third miscarriage. I am feeling shocked and wobbly.  But I came home Sunday to my beautiful house, my amazing husband, my precious, precious boy, my supportive parents...and it is time to get back on the horse.  I trust that if I just keep counting my blessings and doing whatever my hand finds to do things will start to feel right again.

Family Vacation

We originally planned this vacation before we had even put an offer on a house, so I had no idea that just one week after moving in we would be at Green Valley Ranch recuperating. How perfectly did that work out? It was so lovely - warm weather, yummy food, plenty of room at the pool, and three very happy little boys. If we ever get to do it again I hope more family can join us! (All of these picture's are from Steph's camera.)

My personal favorites from vacation 2012:

  • Lunch at Lucille's. My new favorite restaurant. 
  • Listening to the guys plan a board game.
  • Remy blissfully shoveling sand.
  • Fuzzy bathrobe and nice deep bathtub.
  • Sun rises reflected on the beautiful arches outside our room.
  • Stephy time.
