I got 3 snow days this week (even though it forced us to move Kiawah back a few days, I was grateful for the time off), so I decided to be productive and upgrade the guest bathroom. It was really the one room in the house we never did anything to when we moved in. No paint or any kind of style. It was bugging us, so we took a can of paint, a new mirror (from clearance at Target!), and some simple decor and turned it all around!
Before: Ugly and absolutely noooooo style
After: Simple and updated!
Luke picked out the color...he is very proud of himself
Over the long weekend, my a group of friends and I went to Columbus, OH to see our dear friend Nikki. It was a fun 4 hour car ride, and we had a lot of fun seeing Nikki's new "neck of the woods." We ate good food at Cheesecake Factory, talked and talked and talked, and we even did ear candles to drain the wax out of our ears! It was a short, short trip, but we really enjoyed making time to spend with each other.
Luke's brother Seth and his wife Liz welcomed their second beautiful son into the world just after midnight on January 15th, 2009. They are very patient people who did not know the gender of Solomon or his older brother Gus until they were born. I will not be this patient! However, it was fun to guess and take bets on what gender the baby would be. We got the chance to visit Solomon a few days after he was born, and of course I took lots of pictures! Enjoy :-)

I was DYING for a chance to hold him!
He was so sleepy! Being 4 days old was very tiring.
We got him to open one eye.
Big brother Gus was showing us his football gear.
I can't wait to see Solomon and Gus grow up together! Congrats, Seth & Liz!
Hi! I'm Ashley E, better known as Mrs. E to my 4th grade students. I am married to a family medicine resident, and we are parents to a beautiful toddler, Noelle. We are excited to welcome our second child into our family in October!
Along with being an elementary teacher, I am also a professional photographer of children and families. What started as a hobby has turned into a busy business that fills most of my weekends throughout the year.
I have a real interest in blogging. I love reading blogs and adding to my own blogs. I enjoy expressing myself through writing, and I love gathering new ideas by reading the words of others.
I hope you enjoy your time here and come back often!
