Well that was quite a hiatus...

I was busy making this...

Serious props to all the bloggers that manage to continue blogging regularly (or at all) during their pregnancies. From the moment the little line showed up on that pregnancy test (and the other 3 I took in the following 24 hours because I just couldn't believe it), I couldn't think about anything else. Then almost immediately I was hit with the first trimester curse of debilitating nausea, so if it wasn't napping or dry heaving, I wasn't doing it. And let's face it, I'm a lazy-ass. And I milked that pregnancy for all it was worth.

Anyway, our daughter Avery Olivia was born on January 9th and I knew I had to start blogging again, if for no other reason than her. I want these memories preserved for her. And though I stopped posting, home improvements and projects around here kept plugging along.

So I have lots of things to post, but how regularly it can happen is yet to be determined. I have a demanding little lady. When she isn't sleeping, she's screaming, and unless someone is holding her, she isn't sleeping. Mama's got her hands full...literally.

But it feels good to be back.


  1. Oh my goodness! I'm so happy for you (and surprised by the big news). She's beautiful! Just gorgeous! Can't wait to see more posts about her and your home!

    (I was totally just thinking of you the other day when I was checking out my pretty candle holdres I won last year.)

  2. Congratulations on your new daughter!!

  3. OH MY GOD!!! I love her! Wait, is that weird because I don't know her? She's just so perfect. And her name is gorgeous too :) Congratulations mama! It's a rough ride the first couple weeks...but hang in there! If you have any questions or need to complain about people wanting to touch your baby or anything, I'm around!

  4. Oops, I am one of those who love touching and cuddling with babies.. Avery's skin is so super soft and warm. She looks so comfortable laying there in the bed on the picture.
