Valentine’s Day is about love, no matter how you feel about the holiday, taking time to focus on love is always a big positive in my book. Since the traditional Valentine’s topics of lingerie/sensuality/loving yourself happens year round in my world, I’m taking today to get personal about my 2015 love story.
If I Know What Love Is, It is Because Of This Journey
For the last 4 years my husband and I have been trying to grow our family. It’s been a roller coaster of the highest highs and the lowest lows, emotionally and physically. I won’t go into the details of our infertility at this moment, but I’m happy to share it with you if you are going through the same or just curious. I’m an open book, just ask in the comments or connect with me offline. For today, I want to celebrate the news that we are expecting a baby girl in August. Today I’m enjoying Valentine’s 2015 with the power of two hearts beating inside my body. My love for my unborn child and my husband are overflowing but my BIG gratitude lies elsewhere.
My Gang of LOVE
This journey to a healthy pregnancy has been brought to me by my Gang Of LOVE. I’m grateful for the women who guided me through the shadows and helped me put one foot in front of the other, the ones that said “your baby is coming”. Over and over and over. Especially when I didn’t believe it for myself. You know who you are. My gang of love also includes my husband, my parents, and the team at Reproductive Medicine Associates who made this miracle in their lab!
I can’t wait to visually share this spectacular new curve happening to my body! It’s almost ready for the first of many photo shoots. For now I leave you with my most recent shoe purchases:
Happy Valentine’s Day!
