Well, according to my last post, I was back and ready to write more. Well, that didn’t happen. Instead of beating myself up over it, I’ve decided to just start fresh and keep going.
A lot has happened since I last wrote that. 21 weeks passed and my baby girl Marion Lucia was born. And now 7 weeks have passed since then and I now have a 7 week old bundle of joy. Now I really do have some posts saved up.
I won’t label this a mommy blog by any mean, but I will be posting about my adventures in motherhood, and more specifically being a working mother. I have been on maternity leave for 8 weeks so far, and have 4 more to go. Once I go back I have made a promise to myself to continue to write. If anything, it’s for her. I want to document this special time, and if I can, provide something to read for others.
So while I brainstorm and track down some of my most recent projects, I’ll provide you with some of super cute photos of this child. Seriously people, she is so darn cute.
Marion is now 1 month old! I can’t believe how much she has changed in just a little over 4 weeks. In the past month we have gone from entering this world in a peaceful water birth, meeting her extended family including grandparents and all of her uncles and aunt, to seeing her first Colorado snow.
She now is eating more efficiently and sleeping up to 5 hours a night. Always in a good mood, Marion rarely fusses. At night, she still loves to be swaddled but sometimes wakes up with the most frustrated (but cutest) little grunts trying to get out of it. She just started using her pacifier, and it’s a lifesaver for us as we no longer have to have our pinkies in her mouth at awkward angles. Her legs love to kick and she tracks us with her big beautiful eyes.
We love you Marion!
Not that I expect that I have a big following or anything…but I am happy to say that I am back. I have been planning some posts in my downtime and I am happy to get back to blogging. The past few months have been a whirlwind with travel, work, the brewery, but it feels like the dust is settling and it’s time to enjoy Summer.
With that, I have another reason why I have been MIA… I’M PREGNANT! 21 weeks to be exact with a BABY GIRL!
So I will be back soon with a ton of ideas. I promise they won’t all be about little Baby Leavelle, but there may be a good chunk!
Right now, I am looking outside my window to snow. Instead of April showers bringing May flowers, it’s looking like it is going to be April slush & snow. However, I know Spring is still technically here and warmer weather is just around the corner. I’ve been browsing online daydreaming of walking my dogs in the park enjoying the sunshine. Here are my favorite picks for the next season for Window Shop Wednesday.
1 Fruit-Striped Fun Dress // 2 Slate Muse Bag // 3 The Peel World Necklace // 4 Breezy Bring Green Skirt // 5 The Dotted Line Bracelet // 6 Evelyn Whiskey Tortoise Sunglasses // 7 Sealed with a Twist Sandal // 8 All Things Wondrous Watercolor Dress
A few weeks ago my friends Emily, Lashley, Melissa and I joined Lexy from The Proper Pinwheel and Erin from artsocial for a night of crafts at West Elm. The ladies put on a great night and we met so many great local bloggers.
All of the ladies personalized their lanterns using cut tissue paper. We worked away on our paper lanterns and I impressed myself by making a beautiful ombre one. I am excited to find the perfect spot for it, but I haven’t quite found it.
We were also given great bags full of craft supplies that have been sparking my imagination for new projects. Hopefully this means I will update more.
