Isn’t it crazy to look back at the end of the year and think about all of the things that have happened in that calendar year? This year has been a roller coaster of emotions, but I am really grateful for where I am today and where the many trials have brought me and have taught me along the way.
The year started with a rocky beginning as we were still very much in the middle of our miscarriage. It was followed by some postpartum depression struggles, along with a false positive pregnancy test that I was told was called a “chemical pregnancy”. It was a lot to happen all before the month of April. But I have learned so much from it and have had the opportunity to connect with so many beautiful women out there who are experiencing similar trials and I am so incredibly grateful for this platform that I have to be able to connect with the outside world in that way.
Now as I end the year, I find myself 35 weeks pregnant and busily preparing for baby girl to join our family. We couldn’t be more excited for the opportunity to welcome her into our family in a few short weeks!
Because I love you all so much and I want you to feel involved in this site, I want to let you know a little about what to expect in 2017! First of all, this will be the last post of 2016 and I will be coming back January 2nd. I am due to have baby girl in January, so I will be active on the site for about two weeks before I take another leave to have baby girl. I will be back again mid February with guns a blazin’ and will be in full swing! I have some really fun things in the works for 2017!
You can look forward to lots of hair and makeup tutorials, home decor, and handmade cosmetics! I have been working to perfect a few fun recipes for some handmade cosmetics and you are going to love them! I will continue to bring you both blog posts and video content on YouTube as well, so be sure you are following in both places!
