I think I really need to come up with a better name for these posts. Got any suggetions? Oh well it works for now. We are moving right along at 17 weeks now and I mean we are really moving! I finally felt our sweet little one kicking away this week. It never ceases to amaze me when I feel those little pops in my belly. And that fact that an actual human being is in there just becomes more real. I am feeling pretty good except for the lack of sleep. I can’t believe its already happening, the tossing and turning, sleep is over rated right? We got some great snow over the weekend, it was beautiful. Not sure where my neck went in this picture guess it was hiding from the cold.
Dress: Gap maternity (from Gap outlet)
Sweater: New York and Company (from a few years ago)
Lace Slip: Altar’d State
Leggings: Old Navy
Leg warmers: DIY
Boots: JcPenney (from a few years ago)
I am loving my lace slip right now. As my belly expands my dresses and tunics get shorter. This slip is a great way to add length and some femininity (is that a word?) And even better I have a DIY so you can make one. Look for it next week.
We made a little announcement the other day……..
we are pretty excited!!!!!
Most people would say that their life is not normal, what is normal? No one’s life is exactly the same, I know mine is like no others. But that’s what makes it mine and I think that is a great thing. Unfortunately many of us do not embrace the differences in our life. We generally look at other people’s lives and long to have them, the grass is always greener right? I am all too guilty of doing this but I don’t want to anymore. I want to embrace my life, for this is the only one I get.
I am a wife to a full time musician and mom to 3 beautiful girls. A is 6, E is 4 and G is 2. I want to teach my children at an early age that life is a precious gift and to never take it for granted. I want to teach them to love all people even if they disagree because no ones heart was ever changed through arguing. And I want to teach them to love the little things in life because those are some of the sweetest. As I record our big and little moments on this blog, I hope it will remind us to give thanks for the life we have been given.
I stumbled across a definition for the word extraordinary and loved it. It said it meant strange and wonderful. I think it describes life beautifully. Life is strange, its sad sometimes, its hard, its tiring, it can be disappointing and it goes by way too fast. But even in all its difficulties, it is wonderful. That’s the perspective I want have. Life truly is extraordinary and I want to embrace it. You should too.
