I ran into a local mommy at the park. “I read your blog!” she declared. I blushed. My first fan! Eyes wide, I eagerly awaited the praise that was sure to follow. “You need to put up pictures of your house!” she demanded. Oh. “But it’s—it’s not ready,” I stumbled. “I have to paint the walls and make some—” I struggled to defend myself, but I knew she was right. This blog is about the process of creating a home. Time to get over the vanity and share mine.Master Bedroom_1
