One thing I have been excited about since I found a bunch (like, 75) old maps of Drew's granddad's, was being able to decorate our son's room in maps. (Like my cheesy play on words..."worldly room") I LOVE maps, especially vintage ones. And, although we do not know if we are adopting a girl or a boy-I just have a feeling it will be a boy and that is so exciting to me! Because we will never have a huge house and we plan on having lots of kids, our children will have to share rooms. I think there is something so beautiful about this! So, how perfect will it be to have our new baby in a room decorated with maps, celebrating life here and life in Africa.
Last time my mom was here we went to the fabric store and bought some fabric to make Asa a quilt for his bed. It is all inspired around a map pillow I got from my favorite store of all time, Anthropology. Yesterday I scoured the Internet looking for pictures of quilts to give her an idea of what I want, and look what I found!
I'm off to go bike ride with my kids. This will be my first experienced pulling 100 lbs behind me while I ride the mountains of NC. :) We'll take pictures and report back!
