I haven't posted in a while, but guys I have good excuses! First, after several years working in the events industry, I decided to finally take the leap and start my own wedding and event planning business, Olive & Rose Events. It's certainly been a labor of love and has taken a good chunk of my time previously devoted to blogging! But let’s be honest, that’s not why you’re here right now! Matt and I (and Manny) are so excited to announce that we are expecting our own little human (a Boy) this August! I've kept it quiet for a while and am so happy to be sharing the news with all of you today. The last few months have been a whirlwind filled with every conceivable emotion from joy to being completely overwhelmed to some moments of uncontrollable crying and anger (thanks pregnancy hormones). My path hasn't always been traditional – (I’m considered in the medical world to be of “advanced maternal age” or the even crueler a “geriatric pregnancy” LOL). I suppose they have to call it something, but I can’t help but feel that the path I have traveled has been mine and mine alone and I finally feel (at least for this moment) that I’m in the place I’m supposed to be. I’ve tried really hard (and failed at times) to “trust the timing of my own life.” I think it’s important for everyone to remember that your timeline isn’t going to be the same as someone else’s and that’s ok and actually pretty amazing. I've always wanted to be a mom and I can’t even begin to imagine the adventure that awaits. I'm so thankful for all of you - and all of the continued support whether it be the blog, or the new business, or this crazy adventure ahead. I promise to be back to blogging very soon - I sincerely miss it, so please stop back in the coming weeks! Oh - and I literally have zero boy names in mind - so please if you have suggestions, let me know!
A huge thank you to Lauren of Wellesley and King for these photos. She managed to capture not one, but many, photos of Manny actually sitting and looking at the camera, which I was convinced was an impossible feat. Check out her site to see more from her portfolio!
