few years (boo!) so it was nice to head back out and spend the morning hunting and gathering--ha!

It was our agency. I was dumbfounded. I knew that at some point in time we'd get a call, but I certainly wasn't expecting it then. I listened with bated breath about the referral of a little girl who had a repaired cleft lip and cleft palate who had just turned 2. She was a bit older than we had originally thought, but I quickly confirmed that yes, we were interested in learning more about her. I wrote all about it here.
The rest is history!!
We love you Littl' Buddy and can't imagine life with out you now!!
After a fun-filled last day of summer vacation yesterday...

One of the first things J did once we moved into our house, back in 2012, was to set-up the laundry room. Previously, it had been in the basement. An unfinished, dank,
pit space. We had relocated it up to a main level and once the paint was up, the flooring was down and the trim was in place, we, meaning J, moved on to the next project. I foo-fooed it up a bit by adding some scrappy bunting, tutorial here, but that was about it. We knew we'd probably go back and do a little more but it was fine for the time being.
Last weekend, J got it into his mind to add some beadboard to the laundry room. Now let me just say, if you're looking for a quick and (relatively) inexpensive project with lots of impact, this one is totally for you! For about $20 for 1 sheet of beadboard, some trim and a can of white paint, you can take your space to the next level ;)
cute idea and since we had some old windows from the dining room that had been removed and sigh wouldn't be able to be used again, I thought I'd re-purpose them as wall art.

She went into J's wood stock and picked out all the pieces and then marked where she wanted him to cut it. After it was cut, she hammered the nails and he helped get the screws in place (so it would move, obvs.), and then she spray painted it all red but made sure to switch out to green for the bottom of the feet. Very important detail.
