I've been gone for almost an entire year, but I have a perfectly good reason (see above).
That's right folks - I had a baby. My usual hyper - organized, goal - oriented, list - writing self got my entire world thrown upside down last year on my birthday when I found myself "late". Of course, being pregnant did not fit into my plans - certainly not!!! Fast forward to November 2014 - and I was a new mother of a 8lb 5.5 oz baby who stole my heart. In the process I managed to gain a whopping 7lbs, so the snap-back has been no problem.
Choosing her name was surprisingly easy- NOT. I was initally going to name her Mackenzie- but when she was finally here, I decided to honor my parents by giving her names that reflected both of their names instead.
I still have to figure out my "new normal" but three months later I'm grateful for all my blessings.
Emma is a happy baby and despite my new mom blues and trying to adjust to a new lifestyle, I'm doing okay.
Hopefully fashion posts will resume this month- but prepare to be inundated with baby pics too.
Here's to the curveballs life throws at us. May we always swing for the fences.
