So, now that the news has broke that we will be moving (at some point), I’m excited to share one way that we will remember our current home, our first home. (Besides the 46,000 photos, the blog and all our memories.)
I asked my friend Allison (I love blog friends) if she could draw our home. After several emails back and forth, this amazing drawing of our home arrived. It’s so perfect, and something we’ll always treasure. I love it more than any photograph. I especially like the style of her drawing. It’s casual and fun, just like the home we tried to create.
I immediately framed it with a black frame that I had from IKEA and hung it in the dining room. Everyone who has seen it has loved it as much as we have. And, it actually makes me a little sentimental about leaving. Like it’s more real. Even though we are ready for this new adventure, we truly love this home. And, we’ve put a lot of ourselves into it.
If you are interested, check out Allison’s blog or her Etsy store ARTitecture (you can even order your own custom home portrait). (Also – go leave her a comment on Re-Nest, where she’s trying out to be a member of the editorial team.) She’s one talented gal and I’m so glad we met through the blogosphere.
Thanks again, Allison!
