Maternity Photo Sesh

“A baby will make love stronger, days shorter, nights longer, bankroll smaller, home happier, clothes shabbier, the past forgotten, and the future worth living for.” -Unknown

Looking forward to the future is an understatement! I cannot wait to meet Jillian! To see her face, little fingers and toes, how much hair she has! Due in less than a week, but my guess is I’ll go overdue! 🙂 Which I’ve accepted and am okay with since my dear boyfriend will also be moving us into an apartment that’s avaliable on my due date! Intense times!

Love love how these pictures turned out!

The Boyfriend

My soulmate of 8 1/2 years has been overwhelmed with emotions and can’t wait to be a dad! Of course, I’m excited to meet our little baby and have an amazing bonding relationship with her. I’m also so thrilled to do it with Josh. Watch him grow and shine in this next adventure chapter of our lives. The daddy daughter love will be ever blissing and heartwarming to witness.

He plays guitar in a regional touring rock band! Him and his twin brother, and soon to be legendary Uncle, started the band 3 years ago! Last night, I was able to watch them perform their last local show before the baby hiatis! Yes, 9 months pregnant! 🙂 I can’t even describe the abundance of love and support from our moon family and friends!

Check them out! ~ releasing their 2nd album soon!

My heart is glowing and my mind is racing. Incredible anticipation.

Expect another amazing year with Afternoon Moon! They are working so hard to release their 2nd album and make music magic happen! Can’t thank our Moon fam enough for all of the never ending support! They’re expecting to release their album in late March!

2 weeks til baby

Wow! It’s been wayyy too long since I’ve wrote. It’s been quite the pregnancy! Now that I’m 2 weeks away from her due date, it could be any day now! This last 6 months has had it’s ups and downs and filled with stress and happiness! We have been in the process of buying a house but all have fallen through for one reason or another! We should of closed on a house last week but it wasn’t winterized properly and had major plumbing issues due to the IL cold winter… So we walked away from it and decided to rent again while we search for the right home. So we’ll be moving from our parents-in-law soon after baby! Soo much going on!

To say the least, I have not been able to sew since April. I created jewelry and vended several winter craft shows but now that’s put away as well.

Just waiting on baby Jillian’s arrival now. Josh and I couldn’t be more thrilled. ❤
