With my classes beginning in just two shorts weeks (YIKES!), Chris got to work on building me a custom desk so that I could have my own space to ready, write and study. It is sooooooo cool! We designed it together and Chris built it from scratch! Once he installed it, we painted it. It was a total team effort and so much fun to do together. The best part is that the desk is a complete space-saver as well! When not in use, it just folds right down against the wall.
Now you see it... Now you don't!
And, this is what I will be looking at while I am studying...
This BEAUTIFUL, white lilac tree right outside the window of the stairwell!
Sofia has had a little bit of a difficult time sleeping the last few months. About twice a week, she walks into our room around 3 a.m. Half the time, I wake up to her staring right at me from the side of the bed! This was the card I opened up from Chris this morning and it couldn't have been any more appropriate...
It says, Lately, I feel like something's come between us.
On the inside, it said, I'm cool with that. Happy Mother's Day from the other side of the bed. It was PERFECT! :)
My gift this year for Mother's Day was getting to choose and plant flowers for our house. The three of us went to the coolest nursery to pick out flowers. We spent almost an hour and a half just going up and down the isles, smelling and feeling all the beautiful blooms. Sofia particularly loved the coy pond. :) It was SUCH a fun way to spend the morning after church. Here's what we ended up doing around the house...
Yup! We planted everything ourselves! It's the little things that make you feel so grown up. :)
We also picked up the Topsy Turvy Tomato Plant. It is a tomato plant that you grow upside-down! We are growing cherry tomatoes and bell peppers from it. I will post a picture of it soon simply because it is hilarious!
And, of course....what post would be complete without a picture of Sofia displaying her personality that is emerging more and more each day.
Happy Mother's Day to all the women in our lives who have touched us in so many ways. We love each and every one of you!
