Hi friends! It’s been a long time since we’ve talked. I feel like that’s been a constant intro for me lately. Life has been so crazy and I just haven’t had the extra time or energy to sit down and write. Life lately has consisted of getting up a little before 5 AM, working three 8-hour days a week, taking care of a wild and crazy Henry, renovations, unpacking, special events, and at the end of the day, trying to spend a little bit of time with the hubby. Unfortunately, XO, Alexis has taken a back burner and I’m so sad about it. But in the meantime, grab some coffee and let’s catch up!
Life Lately //
Our friends got married!
My parents celebrated their 35th wedding anniversary and 40th dating anniversary.
Henry met the Easter bunny.
Home renovations projects are our life.
We had 4 Easter celebrations.
I’ve soaked in many gorgeous sunrises. Our new house allows us to see the most beautiful sunrises.
Brad and I celebrated 2 years of marriage!
Watching…Game of Thrones and RHOBH. Anybody else not ready for Sunday’s episode of GoT?
Buying…paint. Seriously, I’m pretty sure Brad and I have bought 15 gallons of paint (primer, trim paint, ceiling paint, wall paint, cabinet paint). I don’t ever want to see a gallon of paint again after this reno. We’ve also bought a new vanity top and faucet for our half bath and I can’t wait to get our half bath finished.
Loving…this spring weather! There’s nothing I love more than waking up to the birds chirping.
Feeling…overwhelmed. Life has been hectic which I’ve mentioned multiple times. From living in boxes, living in construction, working 3 days a week, and having Henry home with me all day everyday, it’s been crazy. While it’s been overwhelming, I wouldn’t trade this for the world. This home is truly my dream home and making it a home has been so rewarding. I’m also super blessed that I’m able to have Henry home with me all day everyday.
Needing…a vacation! Good thing Hilton Head is only 8 weeks away. If you’ve ever been to Hilton Head, what recommendations do you have for us?
