MIA

leaving the hospital with my baby boy!

If you spotted this on IG then you may already know that I've been MIA (Mother In Action)! On Friday, May 1, 2015, I gave birth to a healthy baby boy we named Brandon. He decided to show up two weeks ahead of schedule, thereby asserting time is no longer in my control. 

I have felt everything you can imagine...excited, tired, happy, sad and most of all, completely in love. No amount of book reading or classes could properly prepare me for all of this. Those posts where I mentioned I took baby classes to prepare myself for birth actually turned out to be a very different experience for me (more on that later!). But, those nerves I described before have really stayed steady as I have this newborn baby in my life.

Despite all the change,I couldn't be happier. I hope you continue to follow along this journey of mine. I'll have some changes on this blog that will reflect my new life but my personal style will still remain a focus as well. With some special guest appearances by baby Brandon, too.

My first Mother's Day EVER!
