Changes and New Beginnings

by - 11:39 AM

I know it's been like forever since I've written you. I've been enjoying a new chapter in my life. I'm currently 17weeks PREGNANT and my hubs and I are expecting our very first child Jan. 2014!!! Plus, I've decided to leave my desk job to pursue freelance On-Air/TV work. 

With all these changes, I've been really excited embracing these new opportunities in my life. It hasn't been super easy especially during my 1st trimester dealing with body changes and especially my sensitivity to smells. Kirk and I were eating out a lot due to my inability to withstand the scent of cooking in the house plus let's not talk about the extreme fatigue. There were times I could hardly brush my tongue because I would gag. Seriously, stuff got real!

The second trimester has been a burst of livelihood pumped into me and a spur of energy I sooo needed.

                    I finally got to park in this spot while visiting Baby's R Us. I felt special, lol. 
I helped a lovely family friend of ours with planning a baby shower and this family is truly an inspiration. I'm so big on family and the marriage unit. Nowadays divorce is thrown around so loosely,  usually used as the first or second resort when conflict arrives. It's so reassuring to be surrounded by peeps willing to love each other and stay together. Love it!!
