I’ve been harboring the biggest littlest secret ever since January, and so I’m beyond excited to finally share the news with you that I’m pregnant with our first child! We are absolutely thrilled and blessed to have a little GIRL on the way, as growing our family has been a desire–and unfortunately a rocky, emotional journey–for us for a couple years now. I am 21 weeks along today and due in early October. We can’t wait to celebrate three birthdays in October this year–baby’s on October 2nd, mine on the 12th and John’s on the 23rd!
Now that my bump is finally starting to show, we decided to document it the other day to share. Stretchy dresses are quickly becoming my best friend, and it’s taking some experimentation to see what works and doesn’t. But I can’t wait to watch my body continue to change (it’s incredibly fascinating!) and to share my tips for effortless maternity style over the next four months.
Rest assured that the blog will continue to be everything it is today–approachable fashion, seasonal recipes, home tips, and travel adventures. I’m definitely trying to ramp back up with more frequent posts following some very quiet weeks here in the spring. More than ever this place will be an important reminder (especially for me!) that simplifying life and style can be very, very chic.
