I'm Back ..... If only for a Moment!

So it’s been a long time since I blogged anything or even read a blog. I’ll explain why….

On March 10, 2011 my life changed as I know it. Home alone while my Mr. Wonderful was away enjoying Trinidad Carnival, something occurred to me. Something wasn’t right and I couldn’t put my finger on it. All the emails were answered, bills paid, garbage taken out and the house was spotless. However I felt like I’m forgetting to do something. I moved on with my day and during a casual lunch with a girlfriend she tells me what’s missing in my life which leads the something new in my life. On that day, I found out that I was an expecting mother!! First reaction, shock (I know how could I be), happiness and fear. In one minute I realize my life as I know will never be the same hence is why I was shock, happy and scared all in one. It’s incredible to me how fast I felt the impact of being a mother.  I was busting from the seams with excitement but we agreed not to tell anyone until after the 1st trimester was over.

Life went on as usual around my house and then boom! Fatigue kicked into gear.  I could not stay awake for more than 5 hours without taking a nap and I was in bed every night by 9pm. This was my one and only pregnancy symptom so I feel very lucky. I’ll take a long nap any day over morning sickness any day. I would normally stay up until midnight on most nights, blogging, working or just watching television but this small baby wouldn’t have it. I gave in, listened to my body and got the rest I needed. I used my time to focus on my clients, my health and my Mr. Wonderful. Now time has passed and as busy as I have been I feel like my old self again. I still need more rest than I ever did in the past but I won’t doze off in the middle of a conversation any more.

So here I am 28 weeks pregnant and feeling great!! I've been skeptical about talking about it through social media because I'm a little superstitious but I'm too excited not to talk about it.  So just this past Sunday, I had my biggest wedding of the year and it was great to end my wedding season with a bang.  Now I am ready to focus on getting ready for my baby GIRL!! Yes it’s a girl!! Who Runs The World!! LOL, my new catch phrase.  I did take some time to take maternity pictures with one of my favorite photographers Chad Pennington and now we are starting plan the baby shower which is only 6 weeks away.  So in the next couple of weeks I’ll be catching up, sharing the details and getting back to what I love to do…. Writing about weddings!!!!

Here’s a couple of shots of the progress of the baby bump!!!
