    I dont ever recall seeing the completed baby room. The glimps from this shot look so cute. I am sure everyone would love to see the whole room!

    Happy Anniversary to the eternal love birds! I remember your wedding well. Such a happy occasion. It was so sweet the way the two of you visited with the folks at every table. I liked the fact that you did it together.

    Hi! I’m in love with your talent! You are very impressive. I was wondering if I could show a couple of your before and after shots on my blog on Friday. I would of course link back to your lovely site, but I thought I would ask permission first. My blog is and my email address is
    Thanks much!

    Happy Fifth Anniversary!

    What a lucky guy Brandon is to have the maven (and future mavenette) of Making it Lovely all to himself!

    And what a lucky girl you are to have a fun, funny, articulate, and willing partner-in-decorating! Any guy who will happily assemble and spray paint a patio set pink on a freezing cold weekend for his very pregnant wife is a supreme catch!

    (Can you clone him, please? Better yet, does he have a single brother?)

    May you have many more anniversaries as joyous as this one!
