Raina Kattelson's house was a sneak peak on Design*Sponge, and I was captivated by the first photo of the brightly colored walls and was only drawn in further by the remaining photos. This is definitely a "May I please live here?" kind of a home. I have a little crush on the red "jack" piece on the table. (That's what it is, right? a big ol' jack like kids play with but way bigger?!) Am also quite fond of the tall wooden cupboard.
Today is an important day for my family: my mom is retiring from her job of 28 years with the State of Wisconsin. I'll be attending her official retirement dinner tonight. Supposedly she's not too sad to be leaving, but is in fact looking forward to soon moving an hour away to live closer to four (3 + 1 on the way) of her grandchildren! She gets to move into an adorable studio apartment that has bamboo flooring, a murphy bed, stunning views of a ravine in a park, and close access to grandchildren - steps away! Luckily she'll be there to help with the birth of the fourth child, Christian James a/k/a CJ, who is due in May.
