so, we’ve been renovating our love burt home for… well. 5+ years.
there’s been lots of changes. we’ve moved rooms around about ten times. when we first moved in we even conducted work out of this home by creating a make shift studio. that was hectic! and now we are finishing up each room and creating a space that makes sense and works for the needs of now. as well as finishing it up to look great to hopefully sell in 18-24 months. we currently have need for a baby’s room, an office, our room of course, but also foster kiddos. we only have a three bedroom home so we currently do not have room for a kid in need and this breaks us down. ethan cannot sleep and cannot rest until he finishes this home and we can prepare for needs in our community. he is wiped out. but i see his heard work, dedication and motivation and i am proud to be his wife. i’m trying to do my part and help where i can. which mostly is tending to jack and making sure ethan is fed and is drinking water. anyone else’s husband forget to take care of themselves while working on projects?! why? silly menfolk. wives are so needed.
the house being in total chaos during home renovation is not my most favorite. but things i feel thankful for in the process. to just name two : 1. jack isn’t quite crawling yet so he’s much easier to keep safe and out of the way. 2. the part of making everything tidy and pretty and new. like this scene. our bedroom. fresh linens, a new fiddle leaf i named myrtle, current read and a cute new clock. i am so ready to relax and fall into a semi deep sleep while i wait for a beautiful baby to need nursed and rocked. i have so much to love about my life and gratitude fills my heart.
it was so delicious to put a sleepy baby boy down for bed and then shower and drift into my cozy, clean bed last night for the first sleep in the latest version of our room. next up is to finish ethan’s office so we can get to work! (clients are patiently waiting!) and then finish decorating jack’s room. the fun part for me!
