Huey’s Nursery

I remember five years ago when we bought our little townhouse and talked about how this room would soon be our nursery. We never imagined the journey that existed between that moment and this one…

Every year of waiting, every day of praying, every struggle and setback was worth it. The truth is: when we stood in this room half a decade ago, we envisioned an entirely different path to parenthood. This wasn’t the journey we had planned on or the timeline we expected… but it was the path God knew would lead us to our son and he was truly worth the wait.

Fast forward five years and we decided to move back to Annapolis from San Francisco shortly after discovering we were pregnant. It was a hard decision for us because we had grown to love, truly love, our west coast family. However, we both wanted our baby to grow up around his grandparents and decided to trek from the west coast back east in November.

Shortly after Christmas, my mother in law (who is notorious in our family for being an incredible interior designer) helped me to pull together a modern nursery with a subtle coastal theme—neutral colors with the occasional narwhal or octopus hanging around.(If you know me, this should come as no surprise. I grew up in a Naval Academy family around boats and have an anchor tattoo on my ankle!)

My biggest goal was to create a nursery that we could easily reuse and repurpose throughout Huey’s lifetime. We searched the web for amazing after holiday sales on most of the items, did a lot of Homegoods shopping, included pieces from artists we love (like HolmMadeMacrame and Anchor Point Paper Co.), and splurged on a few things that friends insisted we needed (like the Keekaroo changing pad which is a genius invention and doesn’t require washing sheets when things get messy). We also got some of the bigger items from family members at my shower which was a huge blessing and we will be forever grateful for that.

I’m already loving the glider chair for those 3am feedings and snuggling with baby Huey in the afternoons as the sun comes streaming through the windows. This space has a special place in my heart and I can’t believe our baby boy is already here to enjoy it!
