the day after



Did you have a nice Christmas? I hope so!
Ours was interesting but we made the best of it. Feels like nothing is quote normal this year with my dad passing in May all these holidays and birthdays are just not the same. I want to avoid them all together as it brings up so many emotions but at the same time I know I need to put on a happy face for my son who still has so many memories to make.
I didn't get too festive here on the blog, but I'm sure next year will be better! The mix of sadness with third trimester tiredness has made it harder and harder to get my ideas together and live here on the blog. Thank you for your patience though. I'm looking forward to 2014 and hoping it is much, much better than this last year.

A little of our home with a quiet, subdued Christmas. We still have kitchen stuff packed up in boxes as we wait for the last things to be finished. We have doors on the cabinets but now for the counter, sink and cooktop.
Soon, very soon I'll have some before and after photos for you. And yay for a fully functional kitchen again, I'll be breathing a deep sigh of relief then!


  1. We had a lovely Christmas in my house, everybody is happy - pets included! :-)

  2. Love your blog and style! Can I ask you where you' ve found the white cabinet on the wall? Hope you have a fantastic new year with the baby and all!

  3. Merry Christmas to you! Kitchen renovations at Christmas time don't sound like much fun. Hope the rest of the renovation goes smoothly. We had a lovely Christmas, thanks for asking x

  8. Big hugs! I know exactly how you feel as I lost my dad to a heart attack in 2007 and STILL holidays and birthdays make me well up with the thought of him not experiencing it with us. Much love from London and I'm certain 2014 will be a GREAT year for all of you. XO
