Our family is growing quickly. I can’t believe that I am already 22 weeks pregnant with baby number two! It has gone by so much faster this time around. I think because I have Easton to keep me busy. I hardly ever have time to think about being pregnant. However, he is always sure to remind me with his sweet little kicks! 

With a new family member quickly arriving, there is a lot to think about. My main concerns are how adding a member to the family is going to change the dynamic. How will Easton handle it? The other concern is having enough space. He will be little when he arrives, but a new person needs new space! 

With that being said, we have been looking around for a new home that will give us the space we are in need of. West Walk at Embrey Mill is a new community located in Stafford, Virginia where I teach. They invited us to come check out their model homes by Drees Homes. Of course, they were GORGEOUS, and checked all of our must have boxes for a home. The sense of community they have, and are continuing to create, is absolutely amazing. It reminds me of a Disneyland of living. The walkable neighborhood has everything from top rated schools, great grocery stores nearby, dog parks, playgrounds, a pool, coffee and bistro shop, and so much more.

One of the must haves we want in our next home is an open floor plan. It is so helpful with small children in being able to see them from both of the main living areas! The Rowan model by Drees Homes definitely had this! I could see everywhere in the living room and the open floor concept would be great for entertaining as well. I can just picture great birthday parties for my boys with all of our friends and family members! 

My second favorite feature of the home was the master bedroom and bathroom. You can tell it was really thoughtfully laid out. There is plenty of space in both areas of living, so you don’t feel claustrophobic in your own home. It also has SO MUCH STORAGE! The master bedroom is a total dream with built in book cases and the master bath has a ton of storage for linens and towels, along with the huge his and hers master closets! Seriously, I would love to have all of that storage. I can just picture all the organization that would be happening! 

Lastly, I simply adored the basement or lower level of the home. I love all the possibilities that come with it. The model was decorated as a TV and game room, and we had a ton of fun playing down stairs! As soon as I walked down there, I could just picture Easton and his brother hanging out with friends. They would be watching TV, playing video games, hanging out with friends, or working on school projects! The possibilities are endless! 

I am so excited about the possibility of a new home with all of these amazing features. Thank you, Embrey Mill and Drees Homes, for inviting us to tour your beautiful homes and community! We are in love!

Hey! I’m Krista!

Hey! I’m Krista!

I live in Chesterfield, VA with my husband Drew, and our two boys, Easton and Asher. Easton was born with Down syndrome. Easton's prenatal diagnosis was one that I struggled with greatly at first. Once he was born, I realized that everything doctors told me about all the things he wouldn't be able to do weren't true, and I became empowered. I felt the call and need to share our story with others in hopes that other women walking in our shoes could see that life with Down syndrome is not scary. It is filled with wonder, excitement, and joy. Follow along as I share all about motherhood, Down syndrome, our home, and lifestyle.

xoxo, Krista
