Free as a Bird

TGIM! Said no one ever…except Eric Thomas. And me! I’m seriously so excited it’s Monday because even though I loved every second of The Home Girls Giveaway last week, I’ve been anxiously waiting to share some more projects with you!

However, before we get into that, I want to take a second to tell you about a friend of mine who just started a blog with three other ladies. It’s called Wirl Mamas.

They take a refreshing point of view on motherhood and aren’t afraid to talk about their hardships. Even though I’m not a mama yet, I’m excited to follow along with them and hopefully learn some things before bringing a little one into this world. I’m super excited for them, so go check them out and see what it’s really like 😉

It was serving its purpose quite well, but it wasn’t much to look at. If you’ve read my About section, you know we live in a tiny apartment, and it’s definitely not our forever home. I have a hard time decorating, because I know we wont be here for long and that’s why I like to sell my pieces as well. For this dresser, I kept it relatively neutral so we can take it with us whenever we move.
