Showers of Love


    I haven't really talked about how hard is was for kenon and I to start our family. But last June we found out we were pregnant after trying for three years. We were over the moon!
    This past Saturday was another one of those moments in life where you are just so thankful. My friends Tiffin, Jessica, Jessie, and Kim thru me the most magical baby shower! It took my breath away and at that moment I felt so loved. Being pregnant has been so surreal and magical in itself that having a shower filled with family and friends all gathered to celebrate this miracle was very emotional.
   It was like they reached right into my head and pulled out all the whimsical ideas I had swirling around about what I would have wished for. I will let the picture speak for themselves (taken by Jessica/ Peachtree Photography).
  If this is how I reacted to this shower I can't imagine how the next one will affect me. My mom is throwing a big Italian dinner/shower.. I am truly blessed!!! Thanks girls!!!

Cash and carry jewels with a heap of possibilties

I should have blogged about this two days ago. But it took me that long to recover from all the excitement of being at the Atlanta gift show and meeting one of my favorite artists and bloggers, Kelly Rae Roberts. It was literally a spur of the moment change in plans to go. Thanks to my friend Suzanne, my other friend Tiffin and I were in at the last minute. Being 7 months pregnant and running thru the temporary jewelry area of the cash and carry section and then huffing it to another building to wait in line was a little like an Olympic event. Once we were in line outside Demdaco's permanent showroom I was so excited to meet Kelly Rae.
She was there signing wall canvases and promoting her inspirational line of paintings, ornaments, and wall plaques. I was so excited to meet her. She was as lovely in person as she is in her wonderful blog posts. I know it was seconds of conversation but you can tell she is where she is for a reason. So fantastic to have met an indie artist that has made it doing exactly what she loves to do. It gives me inspiration that it is very possible to be a full time artist and be successful at it. Put it into the universe and believe in possibilities:) I don't think I would be where I am today if it were not for believing in possibilities with so many things in my life right now. What a great whirlwind of an evening.

Snow Day!!

We always get so excited when we get snow down here in Georgia. It may not be much but we lose our minds:) There is not a loaf of bread or gallon of milk left on the grocery store shelves.
Nonetheless it is magical and I love it!! The pool is still open if anyone is brave enough to join the polar bear club:)
