Back in August
, we traded in our art gallery wall for a photo gallery wall. We have art all over our home and barely any photos, so the idea of filling the entire staircase wall with snapshots of our family made us giddy–even if it meant patching all of those holes. We started out with just three pictures:
One of us dancing at our wedding, a photo of our home, and an impromptu snapshot of our little family of three taken earlier in the summer (you can see close-ups in this post
). Chris and I both agreed it is time to add more. We decided to do all black and white photos, but I don’t think I am going to be able to find the same frame as I used before (I found those at Ross), so there will probably end up being a slew of different sized photos and frames as we add to it over the years–which feels so right for us and what we are trying to achieve with this wall of memories.
Here are the next four pictures we can’t wait to hang:
Chris and I at a little food competition he competed in. The competition wasn’t monumental or anything, but photos of just the two of us are sparse and I bet one day we’ll look back and gawk at how young we were.
This photo was taken with Chris’s iphone a couple weeks ago. It captures daily life too perfectly to not frame:
Our little Greta girl. She has since had her hair cut into a little bob and has all of her teeth in, but this photo melts our hearts and belongs on the wall:
Lastly, Chris and his little girl:
We can’t wait to find frames and hang them up. We’ll keep you posted on how the arrangement transforms. Any other photo walls in the works??
