When I picture the windows open in a room, I imagine warm sunshine streaming through as the wind gently blows the curtains. Fresh air hits me and I am compelled to take a deep breath. The refreshing energy fills my soul. Of course there are only certain seasons when it's practical to open the windows, but my goal is to fill my heart, home, and family with a beautiful serenity that always makes me think the windows are open!

The Greatest Before and After!!

I’m so excited to share with all my blogland friends one of my greatest before and afters.  Okay, this is a total cheat on the subject because it has nothing to do with DIY home improvements like most of the rest of my blogs. 

In truth, however, I do believe it will improve our home.  And it is somewhat of a DIY (although not possible without the hand and grace of God).   So by some stretch of the imagination, I think it still fits.  :)

The Before…

before6 ~At 38 1/2 weeks pregnant~

The After…


We brought our new baby home this week.  We are both doing well and appreciate all the love and prayers we have received. 

This little one was so excited to see the world that she tried to come out before we made it to the hospital.  The ER staff was great and rushed me into a delivery room just minutes before she “popped” out.   Big brother and big sister are both happy and curious about this beautiful new life.  She’s such a blessing!

P.S. Thank you for sharing this joy with us.  For more “home” related before and afters, see my other posts.
