Six Years



We celebrated our sixth wedding anniversary this weekend. I think it's been our favorite anniversary so far. We didn't go on a special getaway or even out for a nice dinner. We were home the entire day working on the nursery and it felt wonderful.

Our vision for the nursery has evolved over the last several months. This has been due to our budget and the decorating resources that are available. And as all of our house projects go, we've been following our instincts along the way.

But I'm so thrilled to say that Hubby has finished the painting, the wood floors have been mopped, and today the antique French armoire was moved in. Everything else will hopefully come together very soon!

A lot of the final details are now dependent on the postal system. This is because I've tried to avoid the arduous task of driving into the city and have ordered several things online. Not too long ago, a trip into the big city was something to look forward to. But at seven months pregnant, my feet begin to swell and my back begins to ache just thinking about it!

Happy October wishes to you. xo

Gratulations for your 6 years, and your husbonds birthday. Was it on the 29th? Same as me :-) I am also 40. Again. That lie will expire next year when I turn 50, I guess?

How lovely to read about your pregnency. I am following a Norwegian blog where the owner, Camilla, show cute baby clothes etc. If you want to see, check:

And since you live in US, maybe you already have see Sandy Fosters blog? If not, this is her address:

Just like you, she must be really hardworking, full og ideas and have probably a nice husbond who helps.
Have a nice week!

Happy 6th Anniversary! Take it easy, rest and prepare for those babies.
How I wish I was nearby to lend a hand for holding and helping with newborns. Funny how it seemed to be such a big job then, and now I think I could do it blind-folded! Twins are incredible.
Enjoy many more happy days to come.
Looking forward to seeing the nursery.

Hi Trina, first of all congratulations on your anniversary. It sounds like things are coming along nicely with your nursery - I would love to see a photo of that French armoire - it must be beautiful! Decorating a nursery is such a wonderful thing to do - make sure you have a very comfy chair and a nightlight! Ciao, bella!

Hi Janet,
We opted to not have a wedding party. Our dog Lucy stood in for best man and maid of honor...she even wore a pearl necklace. ; )

Happy 6th Anniversary, this time next year you'll be chasing after two little ones! What a lovely thought! Thought of you the other day when I was looking at Hallmark ornaments, they had the cutest little "onesies" ornaments in pink & blue that said "My 1st Christmas," you should check them out on-line when you have a moment! And again, Happy Anniversary!

Happy Anniversary! Our anniversary was on the 3rd. We celebrated our 12th by taking our 3 littles out to sushi with us (they didn't have sushi though). Something enjoyable that we as farmers don't get to do too often!
Looking forward to seeing the nursery: what fun!!

sandy said...

So happy things are going well for you. Good luck!

The Mom said...

I was just thinking that this was the same picture that you used in your post on infertility in June when you told us about your much awaited and anticipated little ones. I know your journey has been hard, but I believe with all my heart that you and your husband have been waiting for specific individuals with a calling and a purpose that is their very own. It was not yet time. But now it is. The harvest is near. Blessings as you pray and wait!
