The ‘Why’ Behind the Greenhouse

I woke up one morning at the beginning of June 2017 with this thought in my head. Greenhouse. I want to build a greenhouse. I pitched the idea to Mitch and after a little convincing, he was on board. What was it’s purpose? Why are we building this? We brainstormed, planned and saved for months. How big? What materials?

Made from cedar beams and old, white, wooden windows, it will be approximately 14ft x22ft, with 9.5 foot walls and the ceiling peaking at around 14 feet. The ground will be grass. As of right now, I don’t have any plans to actually grow anything in the ground inside, but my plant collection will slowly build over time!

The Greenhouse is being built by us, for us. It’s for our family, Earthside and in Heaven. To be honest, if we hadn’t had a miscarriage and in the grieving process, developed a love for plants and all that it entails (check the blog for more info), I don’t think this thought ever would have popped into my head. I like to believe the baby sent me this idea, so in some way, it serves as a memorial. I believe with all my heart that we’re supposed to build it. I can’t wait to see what the Lord does with it.

While the Greenhouse is being built for our family, we’re so excited to share this opportunity with our vendor and photography community as well. Engagements, bridals, boudoirs, seniors, maternity, family… any session you want!

This gorgeous watercolor is a concept drawing by the talented Sarah Simon. She brought in the stunning rich green colors I’ve grown to love so much. She even painted in Monster, my monstera plant, peaking out the doorway.

This Greenhouse seriously could not be any closer to my heart, and I know I will cry tears of joy when it’s complete. I can’t wait to run my hands along the windows, get my toes dirty with Max and make precious family memories within it’s walls. Thank you so much for going on this journey with us!!
