Our middle man turned two last week!
I honestly can't believe how fast the time goes.
We decided to go away and relax with family to celebrate, Tirian loves his
extended family so it just made sense.
Some of you may remember when Aaron and his dad decided to make a table out of fallen cherry and poplar trees they found on his parents' property.
Well, over two years later...those trees have finally become our dining room table!!
And the result is stunning, my husband did such a beautiful job on this. I get all giddy every time I wipe the table after a meal...it's just so smooth and nice. The past couple of years the table has been set up and we've been using it while unfinished while the wood completely dried. It was so difficult to keep clean and everything soaked into the wood and stained it all the time...I can't even believe this is the same table!
Spring is blowing in! Have you felt it?
Aaron was making fun of me for spring cleaning like it was an Olympic event a couple of weeks ago, but you know what? Now I get to enjoy the gorgeous, melty weather guilt-free!
On Monday, it got up to 12 degrees here. The sun was out and the sound of snow dripping off the roof was music to our ears. The boys were delighted to play outside in hoodies, splashing around in puddles and cutting snow with their swords. They spent a good chunk of their outdoor time just sitting side-by-side on the front porch "having' a juicy snow snack." They were quite pleased with themselves for their resourcefulness in procuring a snack while playing outside. Does life get better than that?!
A little about us
This is not the exotic blog of a cultured world traveler.
This is the blog of a family whose life happens… at home.
We do everything here, and everyone is invited, because we want our home to be the place you can go to be a part of life in all its fullness.
And life in all its fullness means things are in constant motion.
Music happens here, school happens here, tattoos, wedding cakes, DIY roof demolitions, and even joyous births happen here!
At the Nicholson home, life is about creating, and it’s about bringing glory to the Creator.
We are excited to share our artistic journey with you, and hope it brings a smile to your face along the way.
Welcome to our home, to our studio…
