Sunday, as well as Christmas, marks my 40th week pregnant!! I seriously cannot wrap my brain around how fast this year has gone by and oh what a year it was!!! It hasn’t been without its ups and downs but I truly consider us so blessed. We have a warm, solid roof over our head, food in our stomachs and the most amazing little miracle just waiting to make his big debut! Behind all of life struggles and hurdles there are so many little blessings.
This year I’ve learned to slow down and appreciate the little things (which I totally accredit to my pregnancy). Every little kick and wiggle I’ve tried to stop, love and appreciate every second of it. I know I will miss being pregnant and I know this has made me stop and truly appreciate the moment I am in.
I am also so grateful for my health and the health of my loved ones. My dad was granted remission in March after dealing with Non Hodgkins Lymphoma for the past year and Clayton had a medical scare in October (thankfully he is ok and is on medication to treat his sarcoidosis). I believe you can never truly appreciate your health until yourself or someone you love faces health troubles . Also having a body that has aloud me to carry our healthy baby boy to full term is such a miracle in itself, the human body is truly amazing!
This blog is another blessing in my life that I will be forever thankful for. It has introduced me to so many amazing people and built a community I never thought imaginable. The support and love I have received since starting this blog is truly heartwarming and I cannot tell you enough how much it means to me, so for all my supporters, all of the companies I have collaborated with and all you loyal readers and followers, thank you so much for riding this adventure with me!
Lastly I would also like to thank my amazing husband, the blogs #1 supporter and photographer!! Countless hours go into making this blog possible and I truly could not do it without him. I am so excited to embark on this new adventure of becoming parents with you, you are going to be the most amazing dad (he already is)!!
I wish every single soul reading this the most wonderful Christmas. I look forward to sharing the news of our little mans arrival and all that the New Year has to offer me and my little family!
May 2017 bless you in health, love and happiness.
I will be forever grateful to Maxine and Shellaine Photography for capturing this most special time in my life. I will cherish these photos forever<3
