She’s having a baby! Marci is a dear friend of mine who carried me at some of my lowest points when the weight of carrying three babies under 5 was just too much. She brought lightness and laughter to my darkest days. When I say motherhood can be lonely and isolating, I mean it.
Every mom needs one person who will come over unannounced and pull you up, take the baby, or just say “yes” to whatever help you need at that exact moment, whether it’s to watch the baby so you can go pick up diapers, take a nap, shower, or giving an extra hand at bath time when he’s working late again.
I found great comfort just sitting with Marci at her kitchen table in her beautiful home drinking coffee (or wine). She has worked tirelessly to create a home that is warm and inviting.
It came to no surprise to me that the nursery she created for her very own first bundle of joy offers the same kind of love and peacefulness that I found just sitting at her kitchen table. I can’t wait to see her sitting in this room holding the most beautiful gift she will ever know.
Marci graciously allowed me to photograph her nursery and share it with you.
She’ll be spending a lot of time here! Also, one word: pouf!
My babies lived in their Paty Inc. gowns. And for those of you wondering, the lotion is Noodle & Boo. We tried some on. Yummy.
Aren’t these beautiful? She placed four of them together: A, B, C, D. The artist added a Louisiana theme to each letter. What a lovely, handmade touch.
Marci generously shared with me where she found all these wonderful pieces… just in case you were wondering.
