Our New House. . .


The news of our baby prompted us to explore other housing arrangements. Our 700 sqft downtown apartment didn't seem like appropriate accommodations anymore (particularly because of the eight flights of stairs leading to our front door). Finding and securing a house was more painstaking than I ever dreamt it would be, but we are settled now and overwhelmingly thankful to be here. As I walk through the rooms of our home, I so vividly envision our baby sharing this space with us that I can almost hear its cries and coos echoing off the walls. . . These are sacred days. We are soaking them in. . .

I love your new home! I didn't say "house" because I know that your love for one another and the memories you will share as your little one arrives have already made this your "home". Enjoy the days ahead...give us a call sometime!

I looks amazing Jess!! You are quite the mommy already having it all set up. As uncertain as the days ahead, your child will enrich each one and make them so full. We can't wait to come and see it in person soon! Love you!
