When I found out I was having a baby, it was surreal. The feeling of a new being growing inside.. it's indescribable. After 9 months of carrying her, and spending a full year earthside, I can definitely say she is the best thing ever. She has filled our homes and our hearts with so much love!
It was no doubt that I wanted to celebrate this milestone for her!
How have 365 days passed? 365 of the best days of our lives, might I add.
Our greatest joy, Aarya, was born on January 26th, 2018. Our love has grown, our hearts exploded, and our lives complete. What was life before her?
I have absolutely loved watching her grow this past year. Witnessing her hugs, kisses, babbles, sign language, admiration of books, love of music, her sheer determination and cheekiness.. it's all so surreal. I feel like I was just dreaming of having a little one, and ta-da.. she's here!
Motherhood is seriously finding this balance of: grow up so I can see who you become, but slow down so you can stay as my little baby.. who’s with me? Does it get easier??
We did her nursery theme with hot air balloons and clouds, and wanted to continue that into her first birthday. I'll be sharing her room in another blog post - SOON! I've been getting lots of questions about certain pieces that I've snapped in my IG stories.
Anyway - her first birthday...
A new year always brings so much excitement for fresh starts, new goals and meaningful aspirations.
Sometimes people need a new year to get their goals aligned. For some, the new year is just another day.
Whichever side of the spectrum you're on, I am sending you an abundance of positivity, happiness, and a whole lot of ENERGY to get things done.
I'm excited to see what I can accomplish off my list this year. I have had things linger in my "to-do" list for quite some time, but my priorities shifted and that's okay. I'm making a conscience effort not to be hard on myself. Things will happen. Life will go on. Don't stress the small stuff! I'm just thankful you all trust me for your special moments.. that's what has kept my days full (along with my little one)! And, I wouldn't change that for the world.
I'm making an effort to streamline things - so you'll see new things added to the shop daily. I'm trying to make this easier for you, and for me.
To help with these goals, I designed a 2019 calendar that was not only stylish but functional. Something you can print off, and pop it on your fridge or for the office. I'm all about making pretty things that are useful. I hope you think the same.
Since you all are so amazing to me and my business, I want to give you the calendar for FREE!
