I had the chance to be a part of an awesome editorial with ELLE Canada + Nordstrom, so I hopped on a plane for a quick trip to Toronto last Sunday morning and came back home Monday night—ridiculously quick! Even though it was a hasty trip, I took full advantage of some minimal ‘alone’ time: a long bath, slept in till 11, late breakfast in bed…can’t complain.
The shoot went well (comes out this April)! What I wore during the ELLE shoot pretty much hid the baby bump, but you’ll see a photo below (bottom of post) where I show off the little lump for the first time! 4.5 months in 🙂
With my first pregnancy, I didn’t announce it until I was around 6 months preggo. That experience was a little different than this time ’round…
I was 21, still in school studying Communications, and the ‘partying lifestyle’ was in full force. Mat and I had been together 2 years at that point, when HELLO, I found out I was pregnant. To describe it lightly, I was terrified—spouts of full fledged bawling, several panic attacks, general feelings of pessimism + doom. Mathew was my calming grace. He was stoked from the moment I yelled, “OMFG, THERE’S 2 LINES“. Little did I know that the most-rewarding, life-changing miracle was about to occur in this little ol’ life of mine.
If I didn’t have Noah, I’d most likely have an office job in the Communications sector (don’t get me wrong, that’d be cool too). But now, I luckily get to be a mommy to a sweet little dude, wifey to sweet big dude, and a grateful-ass chick who gets to express herself through fashion via the crazy world of blogging. Life works in mysterious ways.
Now there’s the second little babe on the way—which, might I add, was planned 😛
