This New Life. A Nursery Reveal.

Hello again blogger friends.  I have missed you dearly.  I want to thank you all for your loyalty through over a year of my absence.   I'm beyond grateful that I still have followers on this blog.  Not quite sure how that happened, but thank you for sticking with me.  ((Hugs))

So, to offer a bit of an explanation, we moved into our little house in the woods in September of last year.  We found out we were pregnant with our first child a month later.  Yep. Surprise!  You know that old wives tale about new homeowners getting either a new car or a new baby?   We kept the car....  :)

Needless to say, my furniture restoration business was put on the back burner for the following 9 months.  I tried to keep it up a bit here and there, but the worries of paint fumes and dust and chemicals kept me away.  Add in an awkward pregnant belly and total exhaustion, and well, you know how that goes.

We welcomed our baby girl on July 7th (a full 2 weeks late!) and our lives changed completely.  My life was no longer my own.   As any new mom knows, the first months are a total adjustment.  A new, wonderful, inspiring, overwhelming love overcomes all else.  And little Miss Hadley Mae is a pure joy. 

We are now at four months and things are getting easier.   I still haven't been able to get back into the grind of Mossy Rock Interiors, but I see the light at the end of the tunnel!  I have a few pieces that I can't wait to get my hands on, but we'll be taking it one step at a time.  As much as I miss it, I won't rush it. I will get there one day.

First things first.  I promised a house tour and we never even made it past the entryway.  Sorry friends!  Today I thought I would kick things off with Hadley Mae's room.  I had so much fun putting together her space.  Not only is it a nursery, but also where we keep our "office" (i.e. a small refinished secretary) and have a "guest bed" (a daybed that has been used by no one but me, through sleepless nights, trying to get a baby adjusted to her crib).  And no, we haven't conquered that one yet....

So here we go.  The first photos are courtesy of Jarrad Lister Photography, who did our maternity session.  He is amazing. Thanks Jarrad!  The latter (and less beautiful) photos are more recent and offer a better glimpse of what life looks like AFTER baby. You know, a little less organized but filled with love.

And now for the Real Life photos....
