We have texture on our walls! Woohoo! We get paint Friday and then shelves in our new walk-in closet on Saturday as well as the trim put up that day. Then, Monday he will come and get our lights in the livingroom installed and that project will be behind us! I cannot wait to have that all done so that we can actually hang pictures, put stuff in our new closets and just LIVE in the space! Our furniture will arrive in August and then I should be able to have "AFTER" pictures of our livingroom for you!
Today is a BIG day in regard to the adoption of our youngest. It's an interesting situation that we are in. One that many think is strange or maybe that people don't agree with, but it is what we feel is best for all involved. I wish I were able to share details, but what I will say is that tomorrow will be a very sad day for our baby's birth parents and it will mark the next step for us in finalizing the adoption. We are in connection with his birth mom and therefor she knows our intentions and has given us her blessing. Many would say that it shouldn't matter, but it does to us. It matters what she thinks, it matters to us how she feels. So tomorrow I will have a sense of relief and a great feeling of sadness for her as well. Will you please join me in praying for her?
I had a photoshoot last night. PERFECT WEATHER! I love evening shoots...the light is exactly the light I like to work with. It didn't hurt one bit that the family I photographed was totally adorable (just like they were when I photographed them last year for the first time!) and fun! Oh my, families like the one I photographed tonight are the reason I love my job...for reals. And I really like the mom...like I kinda wanna be her friend. :)
So, back to some house talk...
I must say, it's been super fun sifting through all of my old things that I hadn't gotten out to use for a very long time. You know...artwork, bath mats, dishes. It's been like Christmas when I find things I forgot about and am able to utilize them finally. Guess it pays to be a hoarder sometimes! ;) Which makes me think of this really cool HUGE glass vase thing that sits about 3 1/2 or 4 feet tall that I got YEARS ago...before even meeting Sean. It's been sitting in storage for about 8 years and I cannot wait to pull it out and dust it off and put it in our new funky livingroom. It's orange and very unique and will fit in perfectly with our new stuff for that room and the color scheme! See people, you would be having just as much excitement in your life right now as I do if you were a hoarder too!
And I know all of you likely just want some pictures, but for now, my mind dump is all I got. Goodnight!
