You guys are working hard! Can't wait to see how it all turns out!
Tonight I was going to share the next part of the beach cottage renovation, but there were a few more details about the kitchen I wanted to check before posting. Right now, my husband is lying on the bed and quietly snoring. ...

Beautiful words over at Kidspot today, by the lovely Emily at The Beetle Shack, about newborns. Cuteness warning!
