Bumptastic

Shop Frankie's Bomber  //  Old Navy Shirt  //  Isabel Marant x HM Jeans  //  Rag & Bone Boots  //  Zara Bag  //  Neff Beanie  //  Ray Ban Sunnies

 So you definitely weren't trippin' if you noticed that I've
been wearing things that weren't exactly tight around the mid section. 
Apparently I thought it would be "easy" to conceal a bump for the first 4 months
but my belly grew a lot faster (and bigger) than I thought it would! I have dodged 
emails and texts asking me if there was a reason I was wearing looser clothing…and
here I thought I was being sly and not obvious! I guess my lack of poker face and 
belly have something in common :). 

SO much has changed in the 4 years since I've had this blog....
 I got married. I grew up in a lot of ways.  I've learned that going at my own pace works best.
I learned how to manage copious amounts of anxiety and fear (a feat in itself).
And most importantlyI learned a shit ton of things about myself along the way.

It's been an honor to have you all follow
along with me these past 4 years....I am so humbled and grateful.
I hope you will continue to follow along as I enter this new chapter and
expand (in more ways than one) my world!

Hugs to you all.

Hi Nicole, my own babies which are growing so quickly have seen me take a break from blogging while I focus on other parts of my life, funnily enough I just happened to wander how you were going as I perused Pinterest this evening and here you are with a gorgeous bump. Congratulations, you will make a beautiful mum.
Hopefully I will one day get my shit together to get back to reading your blog regularly and stealing your outfit ideas.
Take care!
