    "Kids are super easy. It’s being an adult that’s hard." @girlshbo @lenadunham This was taken one year ago. It's hard to believe that she was so little. At 2.5 months old, I felt like I had already known her for years. Yet, I still had no idea what I was doing. I was a new mother, and I felt completely on my own. I told myself to take it day by day, and so I did. Somehow, she and I made it through and although she's still so young, our bond today is so unbelievably strong. 
If it's not yet apparent, I'm in an extraordinarily sentimental mood. This morning I found a notebook that I had purchased when @omgkersh and I were seriously considering adoption. I was planning on detailing our journey for our future child. Looking at the date of the receipt, it read 02/25/15. Little did I know that exactly one year later, my daughter would be born on 02/25/16. 
I truly believe that we are constantly being shown signs, we just don't always pay attention. I view what happened today as a reminder to stay strong during times of uncertainty. Things usually work out for the better. I just need to have faith.

talkie thursdays.

the money pit (1986).

money_pitmoney_pit4money_pit3money-pit2money_pit5

i fell in love with the money pit before i was even old enough to relate to the movie.

as a little girl, i thought it was just so darn funny! in my mind, tom hanks was a one man show, and it did not matter as to how many times i watched the talkie, he always made me laugh until i cried.

i love clue for its massive home, hilarity, and innocence, and the money pit reminds me of it in such similar ways.

however, clue will never have tom hanks. nor will it have this scene.

and who can forget that bathtub? hilarious!

inevitably, i could not write about all of our own renovations without referring to the money pit in some way.

if you have not yet seen it, you truly are missing out on such a side-splitting talkie.

p.s. happy 4th of july, everyone!

    The staircase or lack thereof gets me everytime. And I clench my teeth when faced with another home disaster just like Mr Hanks does.

    • haha!

      i still cannot crawl in our claw foot tub without thinking of it crashing through the floor!

      this movie hits too close to home. i think it’s because if you own a house, then you own a bit of the money pit.
