2016 was a doozy for us!
This Summer Andrew and I
will have been married for 8 years.
Time flies when you’re having fun!
If I have learned ANYTHING in the year 2016,
it’s that life rarely goes the way you plan.
Well, 2017 is a new year with BIG PLANS!
(Both personally and professionally)
We are so happy to announce that this year
our little family will be growing!
I’ve got a bun in the oven!
I’m knocked up!
Ma eggo is prego!
Coming this Summer we will welcome
a bouncing baby boy into our family!
(Recognize this quilt? More about it in this post)
Starting our family has been
a long and arduous road,
but equally rewarding, for sure!
Andrew and I have spent the last 8 years of our life together
cultivating a happy and stable home
with the goal that our namesake would grow
and we could share this home with little feet.
We jumped over so many hurdles
(it felt more like a steeple chase)
with work, school, finances,
and the painstaking experience of IVF.
We did all of this with the ultimate hopes
that I could continue being an artist
and doing what I love for a living
and also devote myself
to motherhood and homemaking.
We are so ecstatic about this new chapter of our lives!
But don’t think for a second that this means
I’ll be closing up shop or anything of those sorts.
I still have a lot of creativity to expel
and some exciting projects up my sleeves!
There will be many more announcements to come this year,
but for right now we hope you’ll cheer with us
as we prepare for the arrival of our little blessing!
And what would a celebration be without a
