Let’s take a break? Usually, our weekends are booked with projects and events. When something isn’t fully finished over the week, we complete it over the weekend. Thank God for two extra days in the week when we can “catch up” on our schedules. That’s how we stay on top of accomplishing the responsibilities. Recently, the juggling is reducing in motion for us. We discovered that we have more time on our hands! Don’t know why exactly this has been granted to us, but we are thankful for the slow-down. Can it be the pregnancy? It sure can! I’ve finally come to peace that pregnant women just can’t keep up with the non-pregnant. My husband and I are taking things slow to get better results.
After understanding that “slowing down” will make me feel tremendously better, I am beginning to enjoy relaxation without feeling guilty. Over the weekends, we now have plenty of time to sleep in. After our good night's rest, we have brunch at one of our local breakfast places. With a full belly, I now have energy to hang out! By “hanging out” I mean taking a walk outside, doing mini photoshoot sessions, and the best part - lounging at home. Doesn’t matter what we end up doing, I always have fun with Teddy. He is just a super pleasant guy to be around and he makes me laugh a lot. This cool guy carries a hidden name tag that says “Instagram Husband.” Truly, that one is obvious according to my IG posts. I am so thankful for a best friend who also shares the same interests as me.
With more time on my hands, I have the opportunity to finish my final newborn essentials checklist. Our baby registry is complete! The hospital bag is finally packed right in the nick of time. Our daughter’s nursery is coming together to look more lively and welcoming (I promise to do a nursery tour after it’s complete). Overall, life is pretty amazing at the moment. Thank you Jesus for sending me a daughter who will always remind me of my husband.
Since my pregnancy is coming to an end, I sure will miss wearing maternity clothes. Maternity dresses will probably be most missed items in my closet. In these photos, I got to wear an off-shoulder burgundy dress from Pink Blush Maternity. The easy going fabric and the color palette on the dress can be styled and layered differently every time. Who doesn't love variety?!
