Settling In

November 17, 2015


It’s been just shy of three months since we moved into our new house here in Germany, and after lots and lots of unpacking, organizing, arranging, rearranging, curtain hanging, picture hanging (which turns out to be quite a feat when all of your walls are made out of concrete), etc, things are- sort of- coming together! I dare not take any full room photos yet because that would imply that the house is “done”, which it certainly is not. (Though Thane might tell you differently.) So anyway, I pulled together a random assortment of pictures that show little details of this new home, including a shot of the large framed prints on the floor which is still somewhat representative of the state of things.

As far as the community goes, we absolutely love it! We’re so thankful for lots of friendly, supportive neighbors, easy access to shopping, and stunning views of the Bavarian countryside. It’s too soon to think about moving again- obviously- but when that day does come, there will be much to miss!

A Space for Finn

April 28, 2015


Hi friends! It’s been a very busy couple of weeks with a new baby in the house, but we’re finally starting to get back to a new normal {and all three boys are asleep right now} so I wanted to post some photos of the little space we put together for Finn. These photos were taken before he was born, but as much as I wanted to share them then I didn’t want to give his name away!

Anyway, I already talked about not putting a real nursery together here because of moving so soon {plus Silas is still happily in the crib}. But I couldn’t bring a new baby home without some kind of special little space for him! So the dresser in our guest bedroom became his, complete with his diaper changing supplies, some graphic prints I made for him, and all of his clothes and gear.

Other than the fact that I had to clean my craft stuff out of here {it’s where all the magic happened for Asher’s last birthday party and Amber’s baby shower}, it started as a pretty blank slate.


Here’s a little peak of a crossword puzzle with his first and middle name spelled out in it {thanks Photoshop! I’ll try to show the whole thing in another post} plus a close view of the print hanging over the dresser. Phinehas is an Old Testament bible name and the “then stood up Phinehas print” was inspired by Psalm 106:30-31; “Then stood up Phinehas and executed judgement, and the plague was stayed. And that was reckoned unto him for righteousness, from generation to generation, for evermore.”



I have no idea how little Finn’s room will come together in our next home, but it will probably be similar, only with the crib. Anyway, thanks for taking a peak at Finn’s little space! It’s simple, but it’s all his.
