Life Lately

This weekend I went home to spend some time with my parents. Shopping trips, back scratches, a new hairdo and painted toes were just what I needed.  
Every time I pull into my old neighborhood and see my house I feel relaxed, relieved, and so so happy.  My parents have a beautiful home that nestles up to the lake and I love wandering the sloping hill in the backyard looking for beautiful things to take pictures of. 
It seems like just in the past week new life has begun to poke through the ground. It brings a sense of freshness around us...an excitement that comes along with any new beginning.  I feel like my body is in sync with nature right now.  I'm growing bigger everyday and by summer this baby will be full grown, just like the little plants. 
 This morning I lay in bed extra long watching the sun filter through the lace curtains. I could feel my baby girl really kicking and I was afraid if I moved she would stop.  I still can't feel her from the outside, but those kicks are getting stronger everyday. The other night Martin got into bed with me and read to her. She started to move along with his voice and it made us so incredibly happy.  
I feel like I want those moments to last forever. I can't stop thinking about what she will look like...what my husband and I will look like holding her. There's so much to think about and prepare for.  We've been trying to just take each day as it comes and really enjoy these last few months of just the two of us.

  1. What a beautiful post! Do enjoy those moments between the two of you. They are precious and very hard to come by once a little one enters the home. :) But the moments the three of you will share together will be even greater than you can imagine! Love the new haircut, too! Perfect way to kick off spring.

  5. OH MY GOODNESS, LOOK AT YOU! First of all, you are gorgeous! Second of all, your pictures are gorgeous! Third of all, I'm in love with your blog- both the content and the design (it's gorgeous!)! And lastly, good gosh, I can't even express how amazing it was the first time we saw our daughter when she was born. It was unreal how precious she was, and how much she DIDN'T look like me :) (She gets it all from her daddy!). Oh, and she was/ is gorgeous!

    1. Thank you Carrie! I cannot wait to see what she looks like...if she'll look more like me or more like my husband. Maybe she'll be a perfect blend :) It's so exciting to think about!
