The Art of Homemaking. || BABY ROOM










When I was pregnant (seems soo long ago!?) my favorite thing to do every morning was putter around our apartment, straightening things up and switching things around and reorganizing things here & there. Nothing was ever the same by the time Aaron got back from work at the end of the day, but I was making a home, which I'm sure all girls would understand...is serious business. 

Prior to being pregnant, I never put much effort into making our home feel like a "home"...but this past spring/summer I caught the nesting bug bad, and with it came a very strong sense of ownership for this place that we lived in. My grand master plan was to have our entire apartment looking absolutely perfect before baby got here, which of course didn't happen. But! I did finish Wyatt's room (just barely...only a week before his arrival), and I still remember the day I finished everything and finally put all those things up on the walls as one of my proudest moments. (Anyone else have huuuge commitment issues when it comes to hanging things on walls?) I'd love to still add a few more things to his room, but for now I'm pretty content.

Anyways, I actually meant to do this blog post before Wyatt got here, but the day I was going to finish this post was the day Wyatt came, so a raincheck was definitely in order. :) As for the rest of our apartment...I'd love to share more of my adventures in "The Art of Homemaking"on here every once in a while. I'm convinced homemaking is a learned art, and one that I want to get better at. I wasn't kidding when I said this was serious business!
