I think I’m driving my husband nuts with our to do list 🙂 Good thing he loves me and knows how to handle me. Obviously my baby girl’s nursery is on the front of my mind these days. I wanted to give you all a little sneak peak tour of the nursery we’ve been preparing for our sweet girl! It’s not “Pinterest perfect.” It doesn’t look like a high end designer baby girl nursery. It won’t be featured in Baby Vogue (no I don’t think that really exists). But we put our love, time, hard work and thought into creating a cozy, safe and beautiful space to care for our little girl and that’s what is important. Being about a month out from my due date, it’s nice to feel like everything is ready to welcome Baby Girl home!
