Jillian's Nursery Reveal

This post is a much anticipated post and I'm beyond thrilled to share.

Because we lived in an apartment at the time Jillian was born, I didn't really get to set up the nursery before her arrival. Trust me, I had it all planned out. I drew sketches of what I wanted it to look like. I made lists of items I wanted to purchase or make for the room. I was ready. I even kept the theme of the room under wraps until I was able to do it.

Now that Phil and I are officially homeowners, I was able to bring my dream to life. It was the first project I wanted to do in our new home.

Without further ado, Jillian's Alice in Wonderland Inspired Nursery :)
