Entryway Tour: Welcome to our House!

 I started the draft of this post over six weeks ago – yikes!! There were some technical difficulties uploading photos and I became discouraged. I set things aside “for a bit” until I felt confident to tackle the tech side of things and, well, “a bit” turned into “a lot” pretty quickly! So without further ado, here’s a much-delayed post.

Sneak Peek – The Living Room

Today is my fourth wedding anniversary. It’s somehow impossible to wrap my head around that. I can’t believe how many amazing, heartbreaking, wonderful, terrifying, joyful, things have happened since that weekend four years ago when we celebrated our partnership with our friends and family.
