I was chatting with a good friend this morning and I was having a conversation I have quite often. To be or not to be more personal on my platform. Its a back and forth fight I have with myself A LOT! My start was in fashion so naturally I post about my thoughts and feeling on all things fashion and beauty but what happens in my life drives my style so why not talk about the personal stuff, right?!
Its been months since I first started concepting my nursery room decor. Seeing it all come together has been somewhat emotional for a few reasons. My baby girl is almost here and its becoming so real. A vision come to life is always rewarding.
It was so lovely to be surrounded by family, friends and so much love. It really made me appreciate how truly lucky I am. I am so happy to be bringing into this world this new little person that will get to know that joy as well.
My husband and I have 2 names picked out but we are waiting until she arrives and we can look into her eyes and know which name fits best. We joke that she will arrive and she will be neither of the names we picked and she will have a totally different name than we thought.

It wasn’t up until 4 months into the pregnancy that I started feeling a bit more like myself, the morning sickness aka all day sickness had subsisted and I decided that I was going to trade in fear for faith. I decided instead of making myself sick over if I was going to be a good mom, or if the baby is ok, or what my new life is going to look like I empowered myself by saying I’m doing the best I can at this moment and what will be will be. I was kidding myself thinking that I even had control of some things.
I found a good balance by list making (Evernote is the best thing ever) and mediation. Empowering myself was key. Taking control of not being able to take control, made a world of a difference.
