There’s a good reason for that – Our BIG Announcement!

Oh hi. I know I took a bit of a hiatus from just about everything but… it’s good to be back!

I haven’t been writing or blogging, I haven’t been going to yoga class or even stepping foot on my mat at home, to be honest, I haven’t been doing much of anything…

Well, there’s a good reason I haven’t been my busy, active, chipper self all that much lately…



Yupp. Baby makes FOUR of us. That feels so surreal to say. And as elated as I am, I can’t even begin to tell you how tough this first trimester has been… Like, why have morning sickness when you can have “sick from sun up till’ sun down sickeness?!” Bonus points for us mums right?

Not quite. My cup has runneth dry a bit but I am optimistic that I am rounding the bend! Course’ now that I said that out loud, I probably jinxed myself but I’ve been well enough to enjoy some really great days with my family and a mum will take what she can get!

Today for instance; we had a kickass family cleaning sesh today, I wrangled the toddler with much success, did some food prep, baked muffins & now, I am writing from my well deserved EO bath… Any other mammas have a tough first trimester? How did you survive? I don’t know about you but I have tried EVERYTHING under the sun it would seem to find some comfort.

Back to the news though. We’ve been itching to announce our pregnancy for weeks now and just couldn’t hold back any longer – We decided that a creative photo of all of us would be the perfect way to spill the beans…

So, beans spilled – Here it is!

Pregnancy Announcement

Pregnancy Announcement

How proud does that big brother look? It is so fun to navigate his growing list of questions! You can likely expect a lot more pregnancy and baby news out of me but I can’t promise it’ll always be on time… There’s a good reason for that!

Now, I seriously can’t wait to get back to the grind and get writing so I can share way more about our summer adventures and what we have in store for the coming months!


PS: How did you announce your pregnancy(ies)? – Share in a comment below!

  1. Congratulations!! Such exciting news for your beautiful family in Maine. You guys truly inspire me and I am sure many others!! Much Love, Jane

  2. Yaaaaay! I’m so excited for you! We announced with a sign for the grandparents the first time. And the second I made a checklist for my daughter with fist tooth, first steps, etc and then become a big sister. It was super cute!

  3. Congrats love! Both of my pregnancies were incredibly difficult, so I feel for ya <3 Fingers crossed you're just about through with the all day sickness and can enjoy this stage in your life…best wishes to you!! XOXO~P

  4. Huge congrats! I had a rough trimester which was weird because with my son it was perfect! Well, turns out we are having a girl 🙂 I really found that eating little bits of carbs before I put anything in my belly helped a lot! I also loved the ginger chews from Trader Joes. Good luck momma!
