Happy Mother’s Day

Bowie Baby

Happy Mother's Day Moms! Time goes so fast.  It seems like in the blink of an eye, I was in the hospital having my daughter Crescentia and now she will be 9 years old in June.  I remember the moment the nurse put her in my arms and remember thinking that it was the happiest moment of my life.  Nothing had ever come close to the feeling I had at that moment because it was the moment I became a Mom and at that moment that the nurse put her in my arms, she placed a part of my soul in my arms. That's why I love this quote: Making a decision to have a child--it's momentous. It is to decide forever to have your heart go walking around outside your body.  Elizabeth Stone It's so true.  My kids are my heart and soul.     My stepsons, Ethan and Dave, Daddy holding baby Bowie and me holding Crescentia- 2007.   The first time Mom.  Baby Crescentia and me-2004. Sensi- Before and After. :) My little boy Bowie- 2007.   Bowie- … [Read more...]

Kitchen Cabinets Progress I got some more painting done on our kitchen cabinets but this is after I already painted almost all of them once!  Then realized that the paint that I thought was sticking, was peeling off if bumped.  So guess what I had to do?  I had to sand off ALLLLLL of the paint that I had already painted.  Some of it was easy to get off but some of it was not!  What a nightmare! Of course, there is still A LOT to do and touch up but I am beginning to see what I imagined and will be happy to move on from these cabinets ASAP!   You can see a huge difference already here in a "Before" photo of our kitchen: Before Photo of Cabinets.  Here is the post I did of my painting and sanding the paint off. You can see the empty space above the stove?    The microwave above the stove look is a little outdated so I took out the cabinets and microwave that were above the stove.  I am going to do a penny tile backsplash and also tile above the stove.  Then I am going to put a … [Read more...]
