hi ladies and gents!

i hope these pics catch you up to my latest adventures and excuse my long blog hiatus

{seriously it has been too long}

let me introduce my little bundle of joy

taylor and feel so blessed
to have a happy healthy baby boy
to keep it real, it has been the most exciting AND the most terrifying experience
i’m still processing the glory of it all
one minute i’m laughing hilariously and the next i’m crying
don’t get me wrong being a mom is
A   W   E   S   O   M  E
!!!
it’s not the perfectly designed life
with everything in it’s place, that makes me comfortable
or with the control that i prefer
it’s messy, unpredictable and exhausting
but it’s the most rewarding job i’ve ever had
i hope you can follow me along in this next stage of life
attempting to balance design, work life, motherhood, faith, family and friends
or at least laugh at my follies along the way

a good mess
Posted on 21.02.13 by - 1 Comment (Leave Yours)

‘hello i love you won’t you tell me your name?’

nothing to do with this post but i just love that song!

anyways…it’s been awhile.

i just got back from a fun girls trip

(more on that later)

and things are settling down,

except they aren’t really.

e90e65c02a22a0b6eb240b5c25260b0c

life seems to be getting busier by the minute,

design work is picking up

and baby boy rider is growing bigger every day!

all for which i am extremely grateful.

i feel the clock ticking daily for his arrival.

taylor and i have a lot of house projects to do before he gets here.

i can’t help but feeling like everything is a bit out of order, a bit messy

but i welcome this mess and i’m working on enjoying every bit of it.

it makes me think of a quote from ferris bueller’s day off-

Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.

happy hump day!

i’m way behind on blogging this week

kind of having a hard time getting back in the routine of designing,

unpacking (yeah still need to finish), and everyday responsibilities

after you come back from time off

do you ever think-being an adult stinks!

???

i know i have so much to be grateful for and i will snap out of it soon

but i’m still in travel mode and a part of me still wants to be on vacation

the thing i love best about traveling is how open our eyes are to new things,

new experiences, new ground to explore and all the wonders it has to offer

so i guess you could say the above quote it pretty apt

in summarizing my mood today

taylor and i always promise one another

(usually in reflection on the last evening of our stay)

to not let the ‘nice’ wear off

HA!

so cheers to keeping our eyes (and hearts) open to everyday wonders

blame january, the month of purging, simplifying and downsizing

now off to some cleaning and downsizing of my own
