Hi, friends! I will be hosting an adoption auction for a sweet family from our church Nov. 15-17. There are some amazing donations from some very talented (and generous!) makers. Please follow along @linvilleadoptionauction, get a little Christmas shopping done, and help this family to recover some of their adoption funds after a heartbreaking loss. You can read about the Linvilles and their adoption journey, and start watching for items up for bids @linvilleadoptionauction. #adoption #adoptionislove #adopt #adoptionevent #adoptionauction #adoptionrocks #donations #foradoption #givingback #createmakeshare #adoptionauction #auction #instagramsale #shopforacause #igsale

My parents' farmhouse renovation is finally complete, and they are moving in! I got a chance to walk through last week and took a quick video of the almost-complete house. I was going to trim it up and edit it a bit, but my time (and my arms) have been full lately! So for your viewing pleasure, a very amateur, wobbly video walk-through in which I sometimes forget that you can't turn the phone sideways while filming :)
They matched the shiplap walls and ceilings from the original house, and added character in many details throughout: the doors, baseboards, lighting, countertops.... They were also able to save some of the original character - the front door (with the adorable doorbell!), the upstairs floors, etc.
The property is such a peaceful, unique place, and I'm so glad my parents will be able to enjoy it now from their new old home.

Went today to check out my parents' farm house renovation. White shiplap on walls and ceilings, 10" baseboards, 5 panel doors, gorgeous tile and light fixtures... You really can't tell where the original 1850s house ends and the new addition begins. Can't wait to see it completed in about 10 days! #newoldhouse #shiplapeverywhere

First day of kindergarten and pre-k 2. Besides being a little teary at how BIG they all are, I'm thankful baby waited so I could be here for their first day. Now I'm (impatiently) waiting for her arrival. #firstdayofschool #8moredaystilbaby

It's the last full week of summer before school starts, it's HOT out, mama's almost 38 weeks pregnant, Hammie is potty training, and the Olympics are on. So we're camped out in the living room with the TV, a picnic lunch, and a baby potty and skittles. #yougottadowhatyougottado

My sweet husband just gifted me with the best birthday/anniversary/new baby/Christmas/mother's day present ever. We still have to finish adding hardware, and I'm planning to paint the back door and the inside of the two open cabinets a pretty color, but I am loving how it turned out!

My sweet husband finished this (not-so-easy-after-all) vanity project over the weekend. He is truly one of the most patient, servant-hearted men, and he also happens to be good at plumbing and woodworking. #ipickedawinner #thenestingisoutofcontrol #thankshoney
