Family Photo Wall

When D and I first got married and were living in our first apartment together I was so excited to decorate. I eagerly hung every painting, shelf and photo as if I'd waited centuries to do it. I remember putting framed wedding photos up and thinking how great it would be to have a staircase one day where I could fit tons of photos on the way up.. and maybe it would even be far enough into the future that I'd have another little family member to proudly show off too.

Well it feels really good that I'm there.

We're not finished yet, and I plan to paint a few random frames different bright colors and maybe throw in some of our name letters, etc. But in the meantime it brings a pretty big smile to my face as is.
