My lovely friend Alexa is wonderful at capturing photos that are as beautiful as life really is! She helped us snag these shots (plus more I'll share soon) of the tiny house recently, and I just love each and every one of them. This is where we live, in a nutshell!

This last week or so has been a doozy. First we had some readjusting to do after our awesome week-long family camping trip. Rowen was anxious to get back on a regular schedule and have a break from all the driving (we went all the way to Oregon and back!). And she turned 3 months old!! I have to admit that I shed a tear over the fact that our 3 months of 'newborn' - that precious 4th trimester - was at it's end. I might have scrolled through and cried at her newborn photos...just maybe. Then, on Friday, I had my first full day back to work. Luckily Jim was able to be home with her for a few days before her transition to daycare, and I was able to see her a few times throughout the day, but she was definitely shaken up a bit (and so was mama!). And then Rowen experienced her first little cold! It seems to be almost better already (*fingers crossed*) but we had a rough night or two, and it was so sad to see her frustration at the stuffy/sniffly nose she was dealing with. Now on Wednesday she has her first full day of daycare (located right here at my work, which is amazing), which will be another big change for her.
It's been a time of transitions for this lil family of ours, and I know we'll come out beautifully on the other end...but in the meantime we'd love any positive vibes you have time to send our way :).

When I came across this gorgeous tiny house I knew I had to share it -- how beautiful is this?? This is The Rook by Wind River Tiny Homes - the same guys that built our home. Check out the beautiful interiors...
I love the unique desk unit, the floating stairs, custom clothes organization area and swing-out stools at the bar. They chose such gorgeous wood for everything. It's so cool to see how creative people are being with tiny homes these days! Sounds like the owner had a big hand in designing the house as well - I'm curious to see how it looks when it's furnished.
Have you seen any gorgeous tiny homes lately? I'd love to see!
