corners of a home-part 3

corners of a (texas) home



leilani is a mother of four who has a lot of creative energy, but a hard time 
sticking to just one thing. she adores her children that are full of inspiration and is grateful for her supportive husband who does the dishes! she is currently training 
for a half marathon and running 23 miles a week! 
leilani has many talents; one of her greatest being her passion for music and her fabulous photography. 
she is always changing her approach to life and is always willing to serve! 
this is one amazing lady with a beautiful home!
don't worry, she's just like the rest of us...she makes her children 
clean the baseboards when she's mad at them!


niche about stairwell holds pictures of leilani's ancestors.
she loves how they "watch over us."

I like the front door and the hutch with the wreath on it. Leilani is just disgusting isn't she?
