I’m about to enter my second trimester (next week to be exact!) and I can’t believe how fast time has flown by! I still remember the day when my husband and I found out that we were having another baby together. The joy we both felt is indescribable. We both wanted a sibling for our son for the longest time, and we are truly grateful to have been blessed to expand our family, however, my emotions have been on a roller-coaster ride.

I once read that “pregnancy is the happiest reason for feeling like crap“, and while the author of this quote is unknown I simply couldn’t agree with this person more. While my blog nor my social media accounts portray this “state of crap” in my images, I do want to share the truth with you, and simply be honest. Ultimately I have a voice and I intend to use it. Social media often portrays the perfect life and even though I consider myself blessed and grateful for the life that I have, i.e. my family—I do have days that are anything but glamorous. Let’s take today. I am writing this post in the afternoon after I have woken up from my 2hr nap. I’ve been taking naps twice a day (luckily my son’s at school!) and every time I wake I feel incredibly groggy. I can barely get up, and I just feel like, yep…, crap.
But I am blessed to feel this way, and I know that. Like the quote says, “pregnancy is the happiest” reason. I’m looking forward to see my body grow and feel my baby inside of me. I remember it with my son Kingston. I must have been around 20 weeks pregnant when I first felt him kick inside of me—what a wonderful feeling it was! I literally cannot wait to experience this again!
And as I am approaching my 2nd trimester this will also mean that I will work on the baby’s room! I’ve been busy on Pinterest finding some really neat ideas of what I want the baby’s room to look like, and of course I will share them with you as well! Stay tuned!
As always, thanks much for reading & have a fabulous Wednesday!
PS: I will be attending an event with VOGUE Magazine at Tiffany’s in Chicago from 7PM – 9PM today! If you’re from Chicago I hope to see and meet some of you there!
