Our Home in Pics

I can't believe it's almost Christmas! And I can't believe my baby is about to turn 1!! We are almost well over here. Since I had been plagued with pneumonia for a while, Mackenzie came down with a double ear infection, and our house was..... well, you could say a little disorderly..... some of our family gave us an early Christmas present: MAIDS!!!!

I think I was in shock for 24 hours.... a crew came in and deep cleaned the house for 3 hours, it was amazing. They mopped, scrubbed, vacuumed, dusted, cleaned baseboards, blinds, bathrooms, air vents, ceiling fans, the microwave, toaster, you name it........ it's clean now.
Amazed. Is what I am.
I truly felt so in over my head after being sick for almost a month, that this was the biggest blessing, help, and gift anyone could have gotten me!!! It was a struggle to keep it all together.... I did 12 loads of laundry so the fact that I had help, I will never forget it!

So, everyone has asked to see the work, and I decided to take some pics to post, because our house is normally not this clean :)
I also realized I never have put pics of our home up before.... a few things to note.
1. We are minimalistic. If we don't need it or have to have it, we get rid of it. There is a joke that if it isn't nailed down over here.... it might be gone!! It's just more stuff to clean, ya know? The less you have, the more simple and clean you can keep it. I make Goodwill runs every 2 weeks.
2. I don't know if I have a "style". I love Pottery Barn because it's traditional, clean, and simple. So, if that is a style... then that would be mine.

So, here is a tour, Merry Christmas! And thank you again to all our family and friends for giving everything you can give to us.... we are forever indebted to you and love you so much!
