Yesterday I ordered my son’s first birthday invitations and sobbed like a schoolgirl. I know it’s cliche but I don’t care — WHERE DID THE TIME GO? This time last year I had a big ole’ bun in the oven. Little did I know then just how quickly 2016 would come and go. What a whirlwind of a year. And now we celebrate a whole new kind of holiday. One that doesn’t involve much glitz or sparkle, a night out on the town or fireworks or fancy dinner. This year, our holiday will be at home.
Ever since I had my son back in January, I put my PR and marketing career on hold to focus entirely on our growing family. Being a SAHM is the most incredible experience, but it’s also the hardest job on the planet. Harder than what I expected. Harder than what people told me. Harder than I think I could’ve even prepared for.
Since moving last May, I have loved making our house a home. It’s been so much fun transforming our space to make it our own, and shopping for home décor has turned into one of my favorite activities. I just love discovering new finds, pieces and places that help bring my vision to life. Living in a three-story townhome with the majority of the living spaces on the first and second floors, the third floor acted more like a storage area for the first several months after we moved in. But that soon changed once we found out we were expecting… time to decorate the nursery!
