Thinking of the Mom's in my life, present and past.

Sunday, May 11, 2014

Today is Mother's Day, a day with growing significance for me as my due date approaches and as I spend more and more time with my own Mom. This is a sweet day for those of us who get to spend time with our Mom's, but a sad day for those of us who no longer have her on our lives... I was browsing through some photos that I prepared for our wedding, and came across this snapshot of  my amazing Mom & Me playing in the backyard.  I must be about 1 here, and my mom would be about my age.  Gosh, we are cute! 


I've been kind of quite lately, partly due to being very busy but also because I am afraid that this blog will turn into one of those annoying pregnancy blogs (do they annoy you as much as they annoy me?). I will say that everything seems to be progressing well.  My belly sticks out now, which is weird for me, and I am feeling some pretty solid kicks in the lower right hand side of my belly which is a very strange feeling.  On May 28th, Dan and I are hoping to find out if baby is a boy or a girl and then we will start preparing the babys room. I'm always excited about a decorating project!  As things get farther along, my house is starting to feel smaller and smaller.  We've been looking at houses but haven't come across anything larger in a price that we can justify.  I love this house.  I have a feeling we'll be figuring out a way to add on somehow...

This weekend has been the first really nice weekend of the "summer" (it's not quite summer yet, but it feels like it today!). We cleaned up our front yard and gardens yesterday afternoon, and spent the morning downtown browsing through the little art galleries and had pastries at a nice little bakery.  I spent so much time outside I actually got a sun burn! Today we will try to tackle the back gardens and yard, which is a total mess.  The heavy snow from the winter partially collapsed a metal awning extending off the back of our garage. It's got rusty old nails sticking out of it and is tetanus waiting to happen, so I am hoping that will get taken care of today...

In Lingerie News, my spring collection has sold very, very fast.  I have been maintaining about 60 orders in queue, most of which are for several garments, so as you can imagine it's taking me a while to work through the backlog! In the meantime, I am STILL slowly working on Swim Patterns & Suits (ag! I feel so slow), as well as a mini summer collection to keep my shop stocked.  You can see the photo that inspired me below.  I've got some saturated florals, gingham print jersey, a large strawberry print, and some dainty floral lace on its way!

  2. That pic of you and your mom is so, so cute. You look so happy! :) We must be around the same age as my mom had a really similar hairstyle and glasses when I was about that age. :)

  3. Memories are so precious. Your mom will always be a part of who you are. You will be able to share her with your child through those wonderful pictures.
    Houses that are small create (force) interaction. Toys and baby "equipment" will be in the way but for the next 18 years your family will make wonderful memories in that house. Stay where you love...

  4. Glad you are doing well! The pic is lovely! Was just thinking the same things as Ginger, my Mum had the exact same hair and glasses, lol. Just started feeling some hefty kicks and punches here too :-) Hope all continues to go well for you!
