magical days

There are weeks that fly away without anything significant to mark them.  They still have their special beauty -- their worth-living-ness.
Then there are weeks that will stay with you forever.  They are the days where you have laughed so loudly, cried so purely, lived so epically.
Those are the days of magic that make you oh-so-thankful to be alive.

This last week was just that.

evening breeze... maternity outfit post


Hello friends!  
Soooo, I am thrilled to be pregnant.  I know what a miracle this baby is and am thankful every moment... but it has not been easy.  The first trimester was dreadful and second trimester still has had difficult moments/days.  And clothing-wise things have been interesting.  Maternity pants are fine, but they aren't always the most comfortable thing.

 In walk maxi skirts to save the day!  They are soft, stretchy, and so versatile!

Spring is definitely here in Southern Utah... The fact that I was wearing short sleeves by Valentine's Day should have been a hint that it might be getting warm soon.  ;-)

hard days, big prayers, beautiful answers... yes, this is a gender-reveal!!!

15 weeks

Last Friday started as a nightmare.
By mid-morning I was experiencing agonizing back and abdominal pain... I cringe even thinking about it.  It was excruciating.  At first I tried to lay down and see if it would go away, but only a few minutes told me that wasn't possible.  My wonderful pastor's wife ran me to the ER.
