March For Babies!

This upcoming weekend here in San Antonio is our annual March of Dimes walk. I'm so proud to say that our family team has raised around $1100! This is just amazing to me! I'm so proud of all the friends and family that we have walking with us that have contributed to this awesome amount! 

That being said, I have to mention that overall for the year March of Dimes is still far below what their monetary goal is. Even though we are just 2 days away from our walk, I'd like to see if there is anyway that my family team can contribute even more! 

As Caroline's mother, there is pretty much nothing that I can do for her anymore. She is forever in my heart and mind but it's just not enough. What I can do is help other families avoid the pain that pre-maturity often brings. 

This is where the March of Dimes comes in. 

The mission of March of Dimes is to improve the health of babies by preventing birth defects, premature birth, and infant mortality. 

I pretty much never solicit on my family blog but I will for this. Please consider going HERE and making a donation. Any amount is a blessing not only to the memory of our sweet Caroline but to babies and families everywhere. 

Love you all!

What About a Black Front Door?

I know... I win the award for most random posts :). I have started doing a little bit of paint work in my downstairs hallway and you know how one thing always seems to lead to another right?

My front door right now is a very strange 1980's light green stained wood color. I HATE the color but I'm unsure what to change it to. I have white on hand right now and I'm re-doing the trim and doors glossy white right now. It seems simple enough (and matchy-matchy) to just continue on to the front door.

The problem with the white though is that I don't want the outside to be white. It would get SOO nasty dirty here in South Texas. I'd love to eventually paint the shutters on the outside of our house to black so it would be nice to have the door match I think. But from the inside standpoint is black too dark of a color to bring into a home? I did recently paint all my kitchen cabinets black so I guess a black front door wouldn't be too far off the mark.

Give me thoughts and ideas friends!

Here is what we have to work with...
