Thank you so much for your kind words on our little announcement. You've definitely made me feel a bit better about that one to two transition. Feel free to drop encouraging words about how your second was super easy and slept through the night from day one anytime the mood strikes. Now that the secret is out, I feel like time is speeding up. Just 5 months left of my relative normalcy - so I feel like I have to pack it all in. Yet, napping sounds good too!
Speaking of packing it in, we are planning a couple of trips - one to London and one to Disney world - both should be relatively laid back since we've done them before but I'd love suggestions for preschool set. As you can probably guess, the Disney trip is all about Aggie's last hooray. You know how there is a name for bachelor parties and baby moons? What's the name for the trip you take before you are usurped by a helpless newborn as queen bee? I don't know but it certainly should have a name!
You would think we would have mastered London by now but each time you visit with a child, its a very different experience. We visited when she was just a baby (see: London with a Baby) but it's a whole new ball game now! So lay it on me - what should we do and see?
Moving on, my brother is tackling the messy bits of the country cottage renovation so its will be time for some design soon. Hooray! He has already installed some lighting, taken down a few walls and made lots of necessary repairs. Paint is coming next and it's all getting a lot of white which I think is going to make such a beautiful canvas in here. Lots more to come.
Last but not least, I'm dipping my toe back into a DIY with a little blogger collaboration and Home Depot. We will all be putting our own spin on a super easy DIY wooden doormat and sharing our versions next Monday. I hope you'll drop by to check out my version along with lots of other inspiration from That's My Letter, Fix This Build That, House of Wood and more! Want to build your own? The Home Depot hosts free workshops where they will teach you exactly how to do it yourself. Reserve your spot at your local Home Depot to take part.
