Hi, I’m Tara.

What started out as a private blog to document our adoption journey has evolved into my journey through therapy, spiritual awakening and whatever I feel like writing. Without our struggles to build a family, I’m not sure I’d be waking up, and for that I’m grateful.

The Nursery Transformation

Here it is. Enjoy!

The room when we first looked at the house, a dining room.
Note the china closet.

Another shot showing the other side of the arch
and second closet.  Oh, and S.  :)


Closet with baskets and shelving
Second closet with a double hang set up.

One more for good measure.  Dresser and changing table are Craig.slist finds

 It's still a work in progress but the vision is coming together, albeit slowly.  We don't have curtains yet because I can't decide on a fabric, and we decided we need an area rug but I haven't looked for one.   We also have a glider - thanks Jenny!  and I'm planning on recovering the cushions to match.

...and I changed my blog background yet again.  It's kind of like my hair, I keep getting bored.  :)
