Master Bedroom Makeover – BEFORE

As promised, here are the BEFORE photos of our bedroom makeover. We are currently in the process of giving our master bedroom a little facelift, and I will be showing the AFTER photos as soon as we wrap things up. My wonderful and talented husband works full time (and OVER time) so he is tackling this project in his spare time. Bless his heart! As much as I like to hurry things along, I’m practicing my patience and trying to enjoy the process. 🙂

 

 

Laundry Basket Babies

^A display of photos for Jake’s 1st birthday party!

A fun tradition I started (kind of by accident) when my oldest son, Jake, was a newborn, was to take a photo of him each month in the same laundry basket. I actually took his first photo at just a few days old. When he was a month old, I was doing laundry one day and wanted to see how much he had grown. So I snapped a quick photo. At two months old, I did the same…and so on. I loved seeing his growth each month!

Now, I’m on my third baby and have continued this tradition for each child every month through their first birthday. I display each of their 5 month photos in my laundry room. On those crazy days when the laundry is piling up and I find myself complaining that it never ends, I see their photos and I am reminded that it is a BLESSING to do their laundry,  not a chore. I am thankful for every single day I get to spend with them, and I’m beyond blessed to have three little loves (and a wonderful hubby) who create these piles of laundry for me. I’ll be completely honest, laundry is not my favorite thing to do. But seeing each of their sweet, little, happy faces in the very laundry basket that I am using reminds me to count my blessings and to serve my family with a cheerful heart.

“A cheerful heart is good medicine…” Proverbs 17:22
