Summer Fun and Looking Forward to Fall
|Tedd built some very impressive built-in bookshelves for his momma. We were all so proud! Ian wanted in on the action.|
|A Gender Reveal Party of sorts. Under one of those dollops of whipped cream is either a strawberry (for girl) or a blueberry (for boy). Whoever gets the fruit has to yell out, "It's a...!!" Of course, it was a strawberry!|

I adore Fall. It's when I fell in love with Tedd. It's the crisp cool air, the spices, the colors, the hoodies and bonfires, and now a baby to add to all that nostalgia! So many things to be thankful for this coming season. But while it's still 90+ degrees here in Arkansas, I'm staying inside as I anticipate my beloved season, and I'm keeping myself busy with mommy tasks and a whirlwind of organizational efforts.
The Queen is really coming along, thanks to God, and thanks to my hard-working husband, so I'm finally at a stage where I can start furnishing and putting things away. But, boy, is it a process! I had NO idea how HARD home renovation would be. It is not something I would recommend to a friend, though it's rewarding now on this end of things; it has been a roller-coaster of emotions for me and the workload of "normal life" seems to quadruple for a few years until you're "finished." (I say "finished" because is a home owner ever truly "finished?")
But I'm breathing. I'm a ripe fruit (now 26 weeks). I'm chipping away at long-awaited tasks. I'm feeling wonderful.
