Half Bathroom: Part 4 (Finishing Touches)

Tal and I are almost done with our half bath makeover! Over the last week, Tal grouted the floor tile, as well as installed and caulked the trim and shoe molding before I painted them. Then, a plumber installed the new toilet. Next, Tal and I installed the pedestal sink, a new faucet, a new toilet paper holder, and a new towel ring. Tal also attached the transition piece that separates the tile and wood floors. We still need to install the new light and do some touch-ups and clean-up, but we hope to finish our half bathroom this week. The end is in sight!

Hadley wanted me to take a picture of her in our bathroom:

Summer Vacation 2017: Part 8 (Last Beach Sunset)

I enjoyed taking some photos of Savannah and Hadley (and Mya, too) at sunset on Wrightsville Beach. The lighting was beautiful, and the girls were so happy and carefree as they played in the sand and water:

Summer Vacation 2017: Part 7 (Cloudy Day at the Beach)

We didn't mind that our first day at the beach was mostly cloudy. We put our beach chairs in the water (see Renee below) and watched Hadley play in the sand and Mya and Savannah go boogie boarding. It was a beautiful and relaxing day!

Hadley thought it was hilarious when we covered her legs with sand and said she was a mermaid:
