...and yes, everything is alright! Everything is more than alright!
You may have already caught a glimpse of my news on Instagram, but I am so excited to announce that my husband and I are expecting our first bundle of joy in September!
It was a long road getting to this point. We struggled with infertility for close to a year before we were finally blessed with the wonderful news that I was indeed pregnant! Our journey to "expectant-hood" was an exhausting and overwhelming one, and I found myself putting blogging and creating on the back burner more and more as the months wore on.
Then we got pregnant, and well, I was so darn excited and wrapped up in it that, again, blogging and TpT just weren't a priority. I was still writing down ideas for resources, and I still managed to get a Facebook post or two together, and amazingly I even created a resource, but most of my free time was (and still is) going towards pregnancy blogs, books, and nursery ideas.
Even more of my time has gone towards doctor's appointments. Because of a medical diagnosis I've had since I was very young, I am considered high-risk. Well, according to my doctor, "on the low end of high-risk." I feel fortunate to get extra monitoring, but I've never been to the doctor's so much in my entire life!
I'm writing this post because I finally feel like I am at a point in my pregnancy (20 weeks and counting!!) where I am ready to put more attention towards blogging (I've missed sharing and DISCOVERING great ideas and resources) and creating. I don't think I'll ever have the drive I had at the beginning and that's okay with me!

In honor of my exciting news and my return to the blogosphere, I am giving away a copy of my Mother's Day craft "My Heart Blooms for Mom". My students loved creating their little flower pots last year and I am excited to do the craft with them this year! And I'm so looking forward to receiving a few (TpT inspired, I'm sure) Mother's Day crafts of my own a few years down the road!
