Motherhood Right Now


morning art projects with me and Clara (Winnie sleeping in until 10)

realizing every day that Winnie is turning into Steve's cute little clone

Clara making funny faces whenever the camera points to her

turning my back for five minutes and finding Winnie covered in marker or getting up to similar sorts of mischief

Clara in the backyard, (playing with Watson) wearing a superhero cape, socks and underwear

every single toy we own on the floor, everyday.

Clara learning to use my big camera (heavily supervised)

the girls playing well together for hours on end

lots of book reading (double the time for two girls, obviously)

pretending to be lions, always. preferably in costume

life couldn't be better.

Sitting Room

If our bedroom was the most neglected, this sitting room was a very close second! It seemed to be the catchall for the furniture we didn't quite know what to do with. We had two lucky purchases semi-recently of the antique dresser and the round table that really brought the room together! Some of my very favorite antique/thrift finds have found a home here, namely the candle sconces (Clovis flea market), the 1920's antique dresser (Caroline's thrift in Aptos), the purple velvet wingback (DI in Provo) that has been with us since our very early married days, the record player (a gift from a friend, thank you Kim!) and the free piano. It's become quite a happy spot in our home! I'm very pleased with how it's shaking out! Now, for some photos.

^^I took this photo a different day- hence the lack of sunflowers^^

 ^^I'm obsessed with these^^

Master Bedroom

In the spirit of home decor updates I wanted to post a few more of our rooms! I'm realizing after 9 houses as a married couple that homes are always evolving- or maybe I'm just a restless decorator....either way, things have changed over the last couple years of being in our house and I wanted to share! 
Our master bedroom felt very haphazard and sloppy for a long time. It seems like the master is always last on my priority list, unfortunately! It does finally feel intentional, if not finished, so I thought it appropriate to document! Please enjoy, and also pause to take a moment and absorb Neo's body position in the first photo. She's the weirdest.

^^and here we have a fluffy lazy cat, a semi-regular fixture^^
