corner of smiles

this morning as I woke Madison up for school
I walked into her room

and just smiled at the side of her bed
she was sleeping peacefully...

albeit we were already late for school
because she was overtired from the day before
and I lost track of time
what's new lately...I'll admit running late drives me crazy
but I've been guilty of it so much these past couple of months

I still took my time with her getting her dressed and waking her up for the day
it makes the day go smoother when she wakes up nicely rather than in a rush

but this little girl had pictures today
and she was grinning ear to ear as I placed a grey headband on her head
that yes I do wear from time to time too
but it looks fantastic on her




But as I walked into her room ~
I always seem to gaze at this corner of her room
it makes me smile every time I see it


Even though we aren't quite finished with her big girl room we started at the beginning of the year
I still wanted to take a few photos of this little corner for memory sake

capturing the small things
that make her smile
because she loves her room
and that way she can remember what it looked like years from now


she's my girl that will secretly escape at some part of the day to her room
she loves her alone time

she's always been that way

so we let her be
giving her some space that she looks forward to everyday


we have some plans to add bead board to the walls and paint the top something that fits her
or that she picks...
within reason I will add
because we aren't doing something that clashes with her current bedding
but for the meantime we had changed the walls to white
in order to get the brighter pink out
as well as to fit with her big girl bed

in her nursery, she formerly had pink walls...
I just knew when I was pregnant with her that she would love color for some reason
and she does...
so at that time is was a great fit

but when we got her big girl bedding back last year,
 pink walls and pink bedding was a bit too much
for everyone

she loves bright colors but also loves white
so it will be fun for Christmas getting it settled for her
{courtesy of Santa, of course}

she already loves to get into fixing her room up
so its the perfect gift


but for now
it makes her smile
 as is right now
and you can't beat being happy about that!
