I'm a full-time wife and mom of two adorable boys. When I'm not busy trying to keep up with them I enjoy photography, traveling, planning parties and a little bit of reading.

In February of 2008 I was diagnosed with an incurable terminal lung illness, though God promised me a full and complete healing. While we wait for His timing, we're taking it one day at a time, and standing in awe of how God's using all of this for His glory. The tough road we've traveled has given us a new perspective on the fragility of life. Memories are more important to us than ever before. The goal of this blog is to share some of our family life - the ups and downs, the joys and probably some of the pains as well. It's mostly meant as a personal journal of sorts, but you're welcome to share in it. We'd like to take this opportunity to say ...

Lighting Decision

I'm sure that wondering what lights we chose hasn't kept most of you up at night.  But I've gotten several emails asking, so I thought this would be the easiest way to answer those who have asked.  I returned the "napkin ring" ones - you could "see up their skirts" from bellow, and that just didn't seem lady-like.  A friend recommended I check out a local store, and sure enough, they came to the rescue!  Everything has been ordered, and now we're just hoping they all arrive in time!

For the foyer (above the door when you enter through the living room):

For the 2 sconces in the 1st floor hallway & the two above the fireplace in the family room:

For the 3 sconces on the "second floor":

... Painting starts in 48 hours (and lasts for probably 10 days).  Here's hoping I have the energy to have everything prepped before that, and that the guys are ultra-productive!!!

Glad you found some you like. These look very chic with a nice traditional feel with clean lines. I like!
