We started the year as very new and VERY tired parents!
Shane I spent our time at home with a new baby dabbling in leather making for the first time!
Shane had to take off to Australia for work, and it was just Jolie and I for 6 weeks, which was both terrifying and liberating as a brand new mom!
After 6 weeks alone, I mustered up all of my courage and took our 4 month old on 3 planes for a total of 25 hours of traveling to join Shane in Australia. Turns out, it wasn’t bad at all!
For 6 weeks we lived the city life in a high rise apartment in Brisbane.
Brisbane will always have a special place in our heart!
And we spent our weekends on the coast and site seeing with some of our best friends!
After 6 weeks our family flew back to Indiana together, and got right to work on a little front porch redo.
Leather making seemed to stick for me and I set up shop with a used industrial sewing machine, and started working on some of my very first Stone Lane purses!
We also replaced all the floors in our house
Then, we tackled a bathroom renovation, too!
Our house made it into the new YoungHouseLove book!!
We had a wonderful visit from two of our besties from Australia!
We. celebrated Thanksgiving on the beach with turkey sandwiches!
We started a small renovation on our home on wheels!
Our baby grew way too fast and we celebrated her first birthday on December 4th!
Last but not least…All three of us celebrated the New Year with bubbles!
