Friday, we left you with our finished and hung shelves:
Which was lightyears away from where we started:
But over the weekend, we got them loaded up and the room feels so much more complete.
My entire family flew in for an early Christmas this weekend, and we were hosting dinner and games on Saturday night at our place. I was up early Saturday morning to finish unpacking boxes of decor and books. There are tweaks to be made, of course, but we have already logged in a few hours in this room reading and having mini jam sessions with the guitar and djembe–so music room, too?. We are so grateful to have a room to just unwind in. What an unnecessary, but completely delightful luxury. You can see even Greta has a stack of her books on the bottom shelf for easy access. It’s our new favorite room. We still plan on ripping out the carpet soon (!), but I’ll spill those details next week.
Sunday, my family opted to have our family photo taken in front of our shelves. They made for a fun and textured background for all of my pretty sisters and sweet parents.
The rest of this week, we are spending as a little family celebrating Christmas and then we’re off to Chris’s brother’s wedding (he’s marrying one of my best friends!) on the 26th. Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all of you. We are feeling particularly grateful for our virtual friends (you!) and can’t wait to share with you what’s in store for 2014–big things!!
