So the opportunity to have a…

Planning a Nursery for a New Arrival

I remember planning a nursery for baby girl, in our old house. Now baby number 2 is on the way and we are in a new house I’m going to start all over again. It’s a little too soon to find out what we are having, but it would be easier if it’s a girl due to all the girly…
