our new normal

Wow. About all we can say when looking back on the last 2 weeks. After the craziness of the holidays, a family wedding, pregnancy that didn't seem to end, labor that felt like forever, and the adjustment of life with a newborn, it has been quite the whirlwind.

We welcomed our son Evan on December 29th, 2014 (more to come on his birth story later). Over the past 10 days life has definitely changed. Thankfully Kiel and I have both been off work to acclimate to the sleepless nights and the seemingly constant demands of a newborn. Kiel goes back next week and I thankfully have a few more months off before going back to my 3 day a week schedule. In the meantime we have actually been able to keep the house clean, food on the table (with the help of family!), and even started to work on our goals and plans for the new year.

While things will be off to a slow start over the next several weeks, we are finally finding bits of time to work on small DIY projects, home and styling projects for this year. For now will be are sharing some of the DIY project contributions we were working on at the end of 2014 and life updates.

With our growing family, a less demanding work schedule, and big ideas, we anticipate that 2015 is going to be a great year!
