Yesterday was one of those days. I was just in a funk and not even an adorable LBD on sale for $35 at Nordstrom got me out of it. Yeah, it was bad. And it wasn’t even just one thing….just multiple little annoying things. Please tell me you’ve had these days? Before getting into bed (which I have been wanting to do since um around noon) I decided to edit of few pics of Miss Priss from last week…hoping to cheer myself up. And well, see below…problem solved.
As I arraged each piece of the nursery just so, I daydreamt about who the little girl would be that we would bring home. This would be her room. The thoughts around our sweet girl consumed me. I would just sit in the nursery for hours and try to imagine life WITH her. Seven short months later, as I snapped these photos, I remembered back to placing the things in her nursery while pregnant and became overwhelmed with emotion. Not only can I now not imagine life WITHOUT her, but seeing her in her crib playing and interacting with her stuffed animals brought everything full circle and came crashing into me like a Mack truck. It was as if I was looking at my life from 1,500 feet above. She’s mine and she’s perfect. She’s really here…this little girl I’ve been dreaming of since forever. She’s goofy like her mama, looks just like her daddy and is cooler than both of us combined times a million. A perfect blessing of which I am not deserving.
Life gets so busy. There are good days. There are bad days. But when you are looking down on your life…geez there’s just so darn much to be thankful for. What do you see when you look down on your life?
It doesn’t hurt that the afternoon light in the nursery is something out of a dream. Enjoy 🙂

Sorry you had such a bad day! I can't wait to see her sweet face TOMORROW (or… well… Friday… she'll be asleep when I get in…)

I love your blog and wanted to tell you that I am IN LOVE with your nursery.
I was pregnant with my third baby, and we found out that she would be our princess after 2 boys. So I began browsing around on printrest for nurseries. Of course I would see plenty of stuff that I liked, but when I saw yours I just knew it was it! I have the wallpaper in a box in her closet waiting to be hung.
I decided to wait on doing the nursery until her birth confirmed she was truly a girl 🙂I can't wait to share pictures!
