The countdown is on! We only have about four weeks until Reefie Ann’s due date. David and I are so ready to meet our sweet girl and hold her.
We’ve spent the last few months getting her little room all ready for her arrival. At this point it’s definitely baby ready, but there are a couple of things left to do. I wanted to share with you a little peek into her nursery– mainly because it’s my favorite room in our home right now and because several people have asked about it.
Reefie Ann’s room is filled with special little things– personal handmade gifts, fun vintage finds and a few things that have been passed down and borrowed in my family.
The essentials! An old wire basket holds Reefie Ann’s teeny tiny adorable newborn diapers!
Handmade cashmere birds from a dear friend
We’re still working on getting her dust ruffle made for the crib.
Fun little stuff and sweet gifts!
A little bit of arts and crafts made by Reefie Ann’s momma! And my cross-stitched birth announcement that was made by my mom & her friends when I was a baby.
While all these preparations have been so much fun and exciting, I am reminded daily that the greatest preparations need to take place in my heart. There’s so much more to be concerned with than preparing a room. God has been so gracious to me as He stills my soul and directs my focus to Him. Through my fears, worries and anxieties I have been challenged once again to confess, walk by faith and not by sight, look to the Lord for direction and rest in Him. I have clung to this Bible verse these past few months.
I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you with My eye upon you. Psalm 32:8
Resting in this promise has been such a gift from God.
Almost eight years ago my husband and I got married and moved into a house. Over the course of those eight years we have made that house our home. Gallons upon gallons of paint, a lot of sweat, more elbow grease that Mr. Fast Lube owns and a load of creativity have gone into transforming this house into a space that feels so comfortable and perfect to us. Here’s a little peek inside our front door:
My dog photo bombed so many of the pictures.
To get an idea of all the work that we have put into this house you should view the before and after photos on the MAKING HOME page of this website. There’s a permanent link to it on the home page or just click below:
