Sweet Caroline

With the best intentions to post on this blog every day, I have managed to neglect it since the very first time I wrote anything! But, the end of my pregnancy was exhausting and I have never been more uncomfortable in my life, and I carried this little one to 41 weeks and 1 day before they tried to induce me. That induction attempt ended in an emergency c-section, which I will share more details of in the birth story I am trying to finish writing, but until then here is my little love, the most amazing thing I have ever done in my life, and the greatest joy I have ever known.

The Beginning...

so yesterday I turned 32 years old. that in itself is no major accomplishment, but I have to say I used to look at my 30's as a time when I would be O.L.D. needless to say, the reality is nothing of the sort!

I am also 8 months pregnant with our first child, a baby girl (so they tell me!), and we are in a stage of constant and anxious waiting, wondering, and preparing. sleep has become elusive and so have my toes, not to mention my bikini area - YIKES.

this seems as good a time as any to start (finally!) recording a little of my life and sharing with the world, something many do so well, but which I resisted for a very long time. so, in the beginning of this new year, with my brand new bundle of joy almost here, and a new (old) house constantly demanding attention and love and decorating, maybe I can finally begin to make some sense out of how I got here in the first place, where I hope my future takes me, and the bumpy, tumultuous, hilarious, and often unexpected turns in the road that gets me there! thanks for coming along for the ride!
