Guest Bedroom Paint Job Reveal + Design Updates!

October 10, 2019

As you may recall the great green paint debate, we finally landed on a color for both the walls and the ceiling! Since this all went down right before the baby came, we decided to call in some help to finish the paint job this time. I am so relieved we did too. Sharing the process photos of this newly painted room, and the almost finished design concepts…

It fills your house with the aroma of autumn!

A quick Sunday hello! + Memory banks.

October 7, 2019

Happy Sunday to you! We are working on getting back on our feet (literally), and navigating through life as a family of 8. I have so much to share about postpartum recovery, but for now a quick hello! Chiara is 3 weeks old tomorrow which has felt like one long blurry week. It was fall break for our kiddos, and it was a lot of juggling and surviving to be honest. There were lots of tears on my part. Today was actually the first day we navigated out all together. I was craving some quality time with them, and I knew they needed it from me too.  The weather went from 95 degrees to low 60 degrees in two days time, which gave us the last minute motivation to head up to the apple farm….

Meeting Chiara Maris. (VIDEO)

September 25, 2019

 

Time stands still when your children meet. It’s one of the greatest experiences as a parent to see how much love your children have to give to each other. I think when you receive moments like this, they can really carry you through the difficult stretches. So when I am in the trenches of postpartum next week I will just replay this little video;)

So grateful to Chelsey Heidorn for coming to the hospital to film + photograph, and my sister Angela who snapped some of these as well.)

Introducing our baby GIRL + Birth Story.

September 20, 2019

On Monday, September 16th 2019, at 4:05pm our baby girl made her way into our arms! I don’t think I could accurately put into words the experience of her birth, but this is an attempted summary…. and her name and meaning at the end!

I thought Max would always take the cake of difficult births for me, but this one stole the crown. Despite the difficulty,  it was still one the most powerful experiences of my life. I think many moments made way for this one, and I have come to realize….I would have never been able to receive it as the gift that it was without the storms I walked through first.
