Waiting for Baby to arrive is both incredibly exciting & totally nerve-wracking. I can't wait to finally hold this little peanut in my arms, but I'm nervous about the delivery and all the unknowns that follow. Distracting me from these highs & lows are the home-improvement projects we've recently taken on. With the help from a friend, we've made some changes to our place, which I hope to share with you this week.
Besides the obvious improvements we've made (lighting fixture instead of hanging bulb), I've found that the act of putting time & energy into our living space and sometimes laboring & debating over seemingly small decisions make the space that much more special & enjoyable - a place that really feels like home. And maybe it's part of my nesting mode, but I've also found that I'm more motivated & excited to do things I've been putting off. Over the weekend, one of those things was finally putting something on the wall above the mantel. (It's been nearly a year!) The beauty of this installation is that it isn't permanent, so it will buy me a little more time while the room still comes together, but it also gives me the satisfaction of having something up, without it just being anything. I love that so many faces/memories/moments can be found in one place. So simple & makes me so happy.
More sneak peeks into our home improvement projects to come. Assuming Baby doesn't come first:)
