Like Mother, Like Daughter

Welcome to my oldest daughter's home.

Did you know that one of the first places the term "Like mother, like daughter" is used is in the Bible? The very popular KJV actually says "As is the mother, so is her daughter", but in later translations it comes out as above.
My sweet daughter loves beauty and strives to surround herself with loveliness and serenity. She is definitely a minimalist, there are not too many decorative items sitting around for little hands to demolish. Because her two year old boy would do just that with a football, soccer ball or hockey stick, if he had one!
Their master bedroom is very pretty and serene, though. When her husband bought this house it had been an unloved little rental. After they married and Carolyn moved in, it underwent extensive updating. It is now a sweet little three-bedroom rancher that is definitely very much lived in and and loved. With two toddlers she has her hands full keeping it up, but she is like me in that she keeps it as tidy as is possible. I had another photo to show, but Blogger is giving my trouble today, she has a beautiful yellow quilt on her bed that echoes the color that are in the picture above the bed. Her walls are actually a soft gray-green, here they are showing up gray.

Hope you enjoyed the little tour, she is a very private person, but she allowed me this much. Thank you, sweetie.
