Friends, let me be the first to tell you that there are some really talented momma's out there. I've watched mama's to be renovate spaces that make my jaw drop, sew quilts that make me go 😍 and mommas who continue their crossfit workouts until the very end. All getting cheers from me. 🙌🏼 ⠀ My contribution to this motherhood pool? Custom invitations for my baby girl's shower. Yes, I've heard “It’s just a piece of paper more than I care to admit in the course of my career, but paper has purpose. These custom invitations for her shower will forever remind me of this joyous season I'm in. Of course some of it will go to the recycling bin, but some of it will also be kept in a special book for her to look at someday and that makes it all worth it. ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ #25weekspregnant #pregnancyjourney #livethelittlethings #liveauthentic #etsyfinds #etsy #etsyshop #handmade #smallbusiness #etsysellersofinstagram #firsttimemom #momtobe #babyonboard #pregnant #miraclebaby #mommytobe #pregnancydiary #howdidwegetsolucky #babyonboard #lifelfanartist #michiganmade #itsagirl #babyontheway #babyshowerinvitations #babyshowerdecor #babyonboard #babyshower⠀ #babyshowerinspo #babyshowerideas ⠀

It's been a little quiet around the feed lately... and that's because I'm in nesting overdrive. My goal was to have the nursery completed and ready to go at week 25, so that meant keeping up this feed wasn't a priority.⠀ ⠀ We've been working like crazy getting the basement shelves built and organized, preparing the nursery, simplifying our routines and soaking in every moment of this journey. In all of this prep for baby girl, I also realized I wanted a simpler life when she comes, so I'm making some major changes to Duffy. It's not going anywhere, but I'm fully automating and streamlining as much as I can so that I can be a more hands-on mama. ⠀ ⠀ Until then, I'm currently accepting any and all tips, resources and recommendations for work from home routines with a newborn. 👂🏼
Valentine’s Day is a polarizing holiday... one that you either love or love to hate. Single or taken, I tend to go all out in celebrating love day because there are so many things to love in my life that I often taken for granted. So today, I am taking a moment to love on those around me and appreciate the ultimate love that God gives to each of us. ⠀ ⠀ I love my family. I love this baby girl growing inside me. I love my job. I love my amazing clients who make this business feel like a dream. And I love all of you who follow along and support me through it all! Happy Valentine’s Day everyone! 💕
Eighteen weeks with you baby girl. ⠀ ⠀ Eighteen weeks of wonder, hope, joy, anxiety, elation and growth. Your mama is a natural born documenter and it's only ramped up since we saw those two pink lines. I love filling the pages of my journals with prayers, thoughts, letters to you, how I've felt each day, milestones and things I never want to forget. This journey is one of the best things I've ever had the privilege of being on and since it took us three years to get here, I don't want to miss a thing. I can't wait to kiss your sweet face, but until then....I'll keep documenting while you keep growing. ⠀ ⠀ Journal: @valmariepaper
