Maternity Photos + The Best Maternity Jeans Ever!

I went back to work on Monday after having 3 entire weeks off! It wasn't perfect but it was wonderful. Slow mornings. Nesting. Parks. Snuggles. De-cluttering. Bonding. We made the best of it! I only have about 4 weeks before I'm off for maternity leave, which is just bananas to me! I cannot wait and then at the same time I feel very unprepared for this next chapter. Becoming a family of 6 seems very big and although I'm less stressed about a lot of things like what we need for this baby boy and even childbirth, I can't help but worry about how our family will adjust. How long will it be before we find our new normal? It feels like we just found one!!! Seasons, right? We go through seasons in life and currently, it seems like the rhythm of our seasons is quick. Can anyone else relate?

Pony Rides at Irvine Park + Thoughts About My Mom

Sometimes the best things in life are unplanned, which is something I struggle with.

What I Loved about 2019

Not to mention other family medical scares and some really low lows from all of it.
