Hey Beauties! Guess what?!?! I’m a new MOM!
I wouldn’t say that I’ve been dishonest per say, but I did decide once I knew that I was pregnant last year that I would only share this beautiful news to the masses when the baby arrived. I actually decided not to share this news online at all, even on my personal social media accounts. So unless you have seen the bun in the oven grow in person, most likely you wouldn’t have known. A friend of mine sent me a message near the end of my pregnancy saying that I could be in the secret service for not having this information slip into the online ethers.
With that said, my husband and I welcomed a beautiful bundle of joy into the world right after the new year, and we are on cloud nine. Elijah Zion has shown me what true tenacity looks like as well as how strong I really am. We had more than a few surprises at the end of the pregnancy. Despite it being much different than anticipated, I still had a incredibly empowering birth.
We are beyond grateful to God and the angels for helping us to grow as individuals and as a couple while keeping our faith in all things possible during this journey. We are also so grateful for all the love and support from family and friends.
And yes I did stay in my dance classes every week up until 8 1/2 months which was heaven and then some. Shortly after I was waddling like a duck for the rest of my pregnancy! I may share a video or two of one of my absolute favorite classes of baby and I living on a beat.
While we are literally bathing in this incredible love, I will be taking a maternity leave from Minimalist Beauty. I may try to keep up with questions and comments during this time, but I seriously can’t promise anything. It is a nice thought though isn’t it? I’m still getting used to taking naps whenever I can and never sleeping through the night anymore.
I am looking forward to sharing more chic, eco, and gracefully conscious living upon my return. Until then, I hope that you are truly enjoying the new year so far.
Sending you so much love and light,
