So thankful for my loved ones & the incredible amount of love baby Chloe is getting!
I couldn’t have thought of a more appropriate post than this one to share on Thanksgiving day. I have a lot to be thankful for- my business, husband, health, family, and girlfriends ,but never have I felt more grateful than being given a second chance to bring life onto this earth. ( Watch my miscarriage story HERE)
It’s a little surreal that I just celebrated my baby shower as I feel like I literally just got pregnant…time really flies. Although i’m extremely excited to finally meet my baby Chloe, i’m also a bit saddened by the fact that my pregnancy journey is almost over. I think it’s safe to say that pregnancy has changed me as a woman. These past few months my focus and motives have completely shifted which made me reevaluate my life purpose. Being pregnant has really changed my perspective about so many things on life, and I feel grateful that I have so many amazing girlfriends that have been able to be there for me during this process.
Thanks to my best friends Linette, Momma Sohn, Annie, and my sister Jane for planning me the most intimate and joyous celebration. Honestly I was thinking it would be a really casual and simple celebration, but of course the amazing Jeannie Savage of Details Details (who also planned my wedding HERE) went over and beyond with all the little details- from the flowers by Shawna Yamamoto to the most amazing menu cards by Rachel Jane Couture (the theme was revolved around the Chloe perfume! I mean…how appropriate?), and the most lovely gift bags from The Honest Company . We spent hours laughing about what kind of mom i’ll be (everyone thinks i’ll be a strict mom…ha!) , talking about breast feeding & pumping (yikes! I know!) , eating, opening presents, and of course headband making for Chloe. Overwhelmed with so much love, joy and encouragement I left the shower feeling so encouraged and more than ready for this next stage in my life.
Although today is Thanksgiving day, pregnancy has taught me to enter EVERYDAY with a gracious heart no matter what i’m going thru. Each day is part of this amazing journey, and i’m so grateful that I get to share bits and pieces of my life with you! HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!
