Ivory and Lace

I have never truly stopped to smell the flowers. Never truly stopped to enjoy the little moments of my day. Finding out I was pregnant, getting married… they have helped me appreciate the little things. Appreciate the morning snuggles I get with my husband. Appreciate the loads of laundry, or appreciate the ice cream sandwiches my husband brought home from work last week. I have smelled the flowers, and they smell like home.

What’s a Mom to Wear?

Never in a million years would I have thought that my maternity wardrobe would be the most important wardrobe I have! I’ll admit, I got a little finger trigger happy early on in my pregnancy and bought maternity clothes when I certainly didn’t need them yet. Being a first time mom, I expected my stomach to balloon up within the first 2 months, and I ordered just like that. In truth, I didn’t start getting a real pregnancy belly until about week 16 or 17, 4 months into my pregnancy.

8 Second-Trimester Must-Haves

As I begin to close out my second trimester, I have started reflecting on the last 3 months. So many amazing things happened! We saw our baby move for the first time, we moved across the country (with all our belongings, 2 cars, and 2 cats) to start our life on the east coast, and we got married. What?! It’s so hard to believe that all of this happened in the last 13 weeks.

As a lover of stationary and as someone who had a dream last night about which pen at Staples is the best, I thought I would share with you what I choose to plan my life in!
