Under Construction

skirt: old navy (similar)  //  blouse c/o conversation pieces // watch: fossil // sandals: lotta from stockholm
baby bump: 24 1/2 weeks

What I'm standing in front of is the back of my house.  Beautiful right? I'd say so! - considering this mess of a backyard has been 18 months in the planning and is the beginning of what will be an addition to our house to better fit our family and art business.  The process to finally get to this point has not been without tears, gnashing of teeth, and hair pulling, but it has been always completely covered and protected by God's grace and goodness to us.  Please join us in praying for the safety of everyone involved in the construction as well as the three of us through the process.  Also, please pray that it will be finished in a timely manner without any major hickups or hangups.  We of course would be so grateful to have everything finished and all the dust mopped up before baby H arrives so for sure praying for that too!  

Yesterday was only day one of noise... but M slept through it like a champ.  Hoping that continues.  She kept running towards the back of the house and then running back to us saying "knock knock! knock KNOCK!"  She knew something was going on.  

Sorry neighbors for the noise.

Thanks for your prayers!
