Life and new decor!

Hello gorgeous people!
The last few weeks have been interesting.
 We've been reorganizing, decluttering,
and moving things around.
And we've been having many deep talks about our future.
Andrew and I basically had one goal:
to be parents.
Well that's here now so it has been time to hanker down 
and figure out what our future should hold.

That's a lot harder for Andrew to focus on than me.
Me, I want a goal.
Something to attain and reach for.

Andrew, on the other hand is way more laid back hahaha
he's happy where we are now and that's fabulous.

But finally we both had to compromise for the other
and things started falling into place for new opportunities
as well as for us to get closer
and feel more united.
We now have so many plans that it's hilarious haha
most of them have to do with our house.
We want to improve it and make it the best it can possibly be
for whenever we sell/move to a new one.
It'll be a LONG time before we can do any of it
but the goals are there for me,
and the time is there for Andrew ;)

Part of what I want to do is get our inside painted!
I've been begging for paint for the entire time we've lived here so far
(almost 2 years)
so that's the next big project I get to tackle.
Andrew hates to paint haha
so it'll be mostly me but I'm excited to go pick out colors
and start on it!

And since I'm doing a "refresh" of my living room,
we've been moving things around on our walls.
I just kinda hodpodged put stuff up when we moved in,
so now I want a more cohesive idea haha

Where we used to have our "family" wall,
is now going to be the "Disney, family hangout" wall.
My Disneyland map will go up there,
plus pictures of us either at the park or just hanging around being goofy
plus a whole bunch more of my lithographs that have been in boxes
since we got married.
Scratch that, since I moved to Disneyland in 2010 hahaha

One thing I also want to do on both of my walls and kitchen is get prints from shops
that I adore and add them to the mish mosh of crazy ;)
Karla contacted me about a print idea she had for my living room
and I about died from the awesome!

 "All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them"
One of my favorite quotes from Walt Disney.
Karla is an AMAZING artist and photographer!
Her shop is Karla Storey
and everything is handmade!
I do mean everything,
no two pieces are exactly the same
and to me that's awesome as a customer because I only want unique things ;)
You want to know the best thing about her shop?

ALL of her proceeds go to 
"Feeding the Orphans" organization
which help give food, water, and shelter to orphans!
I mean, how amazing is that?
So many lives are blessed by her handiwork and children are being saved
thanks to her hard work and generosity.
I am honored to have a piece of her story in my home
and when I look at it in the frame,
I think of the children she helped by doing this piece.
She's such a special person and I'm glad I found her shop!
You should all check her outon IG too @karlastoey_
