How I’m Processing COVID-19

This first section was actually written after the rest of the post. Noah and I woke up early yesterday morning to have some productive self-time and to start shifting our routine for when the baby comes. I knew I wanted to write, but I had no direction or topic in mind. Fully equipped with a… Continue reading How I’m Processing COVID-19

Pregnancy Update: 23 Weeks- Body Image, Preparing During Social Distancing

Hello 23 weeks! This boy is growing so fast. I knew going into this pregnancy that I would probably have a good-sized bump given that I have a short torso and a small frame overall.

Coming Soon: The Greatest Gift

Growing up, I wasn’t the girl that fantasized about being a mother. Baby dolls weren’t really my thing, and I didn’t grow up in a family with a lot of children. If I’m not mistaken, my now husband told me in the first year of our relationship (junior year of high school) that he wanted… Continue reading Coming Soon: The Greatest Gift

Goals for 2020- An Attitude Adjustment

Hello 2020! It has taken me awhile to pull together what I want to say to kick off the new year, but I finally made it.  One year used to seem like such a long time. To wait a year for something would mean to wait forever. I’ve always been told that time goes by… Continue reading Goals for 2020- An Attitude Adjustment
