Everett Hudson (8 months)
After traveling to Greece and crossing the number-one item off of our pre-baby bucket list, it seemed only fitting that we would honor our adventure with a travel-themed nursery for Everett. Airplanes and maps adorn the walls and bookshelves, encouraging dreams of faraway places.
In the six years that my husband and I have been homeowners, we have never spent so much time and energy putting a room together. This nursery became my sweet escape while I was pregnant; whether I was shopping for airplanes or painting globes or cutting maps into triangles, all of it made me feel closer to Everett. I loved scouring the web and local thrift stores for unique treasures and watching the room come together week after week.
He's eight months old now and it's still my favorite room in the entire house!
