We are so excited to finally be finishing our basement! When we first built our home we knew it was something we had wanted to do but rook the advice of many professionals to wait until the ground surrounding our foundation settled. We are so thankful we did because we had to deal with flooding issues with Richmond for the first three years until they finally put a retaining wall and French drain in our back window well. Plus, we get to design everything how we want without being put into the 'Richmond" box! They are starting tomorrow and I cannot wait to share the progress!
Here are the inspiration photos that we gave to our contractor:
And lastly, we bought this bad boy from the Restoration Hardware Outlet this past week, and I am SO excited about it!
How on God's green earth is my baby girl almost two? These have been two of the most girly filled years. The days have certainly been long, but my how time has flown! I so vividly remember her coming into this world screaming bloody murder and NOT calming down. Such a Gemini. Although she turned out to be a very easy baby, cuddly toddler, she definitely has a little dose of fire inside of her. She loves purple, telling her brothers they are naughty, actually tattling on anyone, and the girl LOVES unicorns. Or, "coins," as she calls them.
