Hi friends. If you’ve noticed me being a bit sporadic in the blogging department, here’s why: I have a newborn and he is kicking my butt.
Also, did I mention we’re building a house? I don’t think I did. I’m sorry about that. I didn’t mean to keep you out of the loop. But we’re building a house! It’s not a crazy custom home or anything to wow you with the details of, just a nice house in a nice neighborhood, which I’m very excited about, and it’s way ahead of schedule, which is freaking me out because I just found out that we will be moving in in less than 40 days and I am 0% prepared. Did you know that moving is the worst? I think I once compared it unfavorably to being in labor while having a root canal.
But I am really looking forward to being back in our own home and get my creative juices flowing again. I haven’t done any fun projects or makeovers or anything in a long time, mainly thanks to that butt-kicking newborn, but also because our current living situation is temporary, which is a motivation killer for me.
Man, one year ago I had exactly no plans to sell my house, build a house, and have a baby. It’s crazy what can happen in one short year. Sometimes I feel like I’m trapped on a speeding bus, watching life whiz by faster and faster, and I just want the bus to slow down! Slow down! And there’s a bomb on the bus! And Sandra Bullock is driving the bus! No wait — different bus.
In short: life is great, and kind of kicking my butt at the same time.
So … enough about me. Tell me something going on in your life. Because we’re all on this crazy bus together. The bus of life. That sounds like the name of a song. The Bus of Life. It’s probably a really romantic ballad. I’m going to shut up now.
Believe it or not, I do have a makeover to share! It’s a stunning kitchen with butcher-block counters, vintage light fixtures, and a dreamy aqua backsplash. From Kaylor at Fisherman’s Wife Furniture.
Here’s a wide shot:
