DIY: Ikea Hemnes Bookcase Hack - Infant Wardrobe

Our first ‪Ikea hack‬! I came up with this simple wardrobe solution for the lack of closet space in our home. Plus I found the perfect ‪Moon Phase‬ fabric by designer ‪Lizzy House‬ to go with our Outer Space/rockets & robots nursery theme. ‪

What we used:
1 - Ikea Hemnes Bookcase
4 - Synergy Center Closet Rod Supports
2 - 33 1/2" x 1 1/4" Wood Dowels (from the hardware store)
1 - 28"- 48" White Tension Rod (to hold the curtain)
2 1/4 yards - Lizzie House Moon Phase fabric in Teal

Life: Welcome Baby Z!

On Friday, April 26th under the watchful eye of The Man in a very Full Moon a star (of the celestial-type) was born! It is with great honor and joy that Mike and I share with you the news of our son's earth-side debut. Shortly after Zephyr's arrival Mother Earth welcomed him with open arms as she quaked gently beneath our feet while our little family sat alone quietly bonding for the first time. We are so humbled by this precious gift! I've fallen in love all over again with my husband as I watch him transition so effortlessly into fatherhood. And words cannot describe the overwhelming feeling of love we both have for our little boy! We are all currently resting and mending comfortably at home. Mike and I are extremely grateful for the friends and family members who have offered their support (especially by way of meals), love (notes) and guidance this past week!

Love (Really) Is All!

Life: Things That Make Me Happy...

...our new Bloodgood Japanese Maple! I've been coveting a potted Japanese Maple for years but have been stalling due to the price. We ran across this lovely little guy at Armstrong's Garden Center for a mere $35! A fraction of the price I normally find. Welcome to our garden little fella!

Shazam 2013: Burning Man Quiet Book

My super rad long-time (like 20 years!) friend, Amy, gifted our little Dude this custom soft/quiet book filled with photos (printed on fabric) from our last Burn. I'm 5 weeks pregnant in that photo. What an absolute treasure! Created by aeiLOVEu on Etsy.

Life: In Case You Didn't Know...

We're expecting! That's why things have been pretty quiet around here lately. Growing a baby is hard work and this is one tired but thrilled mama-to-be.
