JULY 2019 UPDATE

Happy last day of July, friends!

Am I the only one that cannot believe tomorrow is August? I’m not sure which one floors me more: the fact that we’re 8/12 months into the year, or that we only have two-and-a-half months until our little miracle babe is due to make her arrival.

I’m going to go with the second one.

I haven’t done an adequate job with updates this year because, as I’ll touch on below, I’ve been utterly exhausted. I’m playing catch-up with this blog post to give you all the updates: family, home, writing, and everything in-between!

Update #1: Let’s start with a writing update! Things have obviously slowed down since finding out we were expecting earlier this year. I haven’t been sending as many e-mails, my blog needs dusting - even my social media posts have become fewer and fewer. Any free time I have to write almost always goes into my second book, which is coming along, slowly but surely. My goal is to have it released before baby #2 makes her appearance, ‘cause we all know how much time I’ll have when she’s here. :)

Update #2: Speaking of books…that surprise I’ve been hinting at about “One Step Forward”? All of the preparations for said surprise are complete! I’m just waiting for a little somethin’ somethin’ to arrive in the mail before I can announce. Stay tuned!




Update #3: Moving on to…baby! I’m currently 29-weeks pregnant and feeling T.I.R.E.D. Taking care of a high-risk pregnancy, a forever-moving three-year-old, writing a book, renovating…I’d be lying if I said I haven’t fallen asleep in very odd places lately. :) Every symptom is 100% worth it and cherished, even if I burnt dinner a couple days ago because I fell asleep when I sat on the kitchen floor…

Update #4: HOME. You only have to take a glance at my Instagram to know that we’re knee-deep in renovating a 119-year-old farmhouse. We’ve mainly been working on the playroom (see my IG highlights labeled “playroom” to see our progress) and we are so.so.very.close to being finished with it! See below for a little before and after.

CURRENTLY



We’re hoping we can pound out what’s left soon so we can paint Lilli’s bedroom before her sister gets here!


That’s about all the updates I have right now! As I said up above, I haven’t written many blog posts, but here’s a list of the ones I have published recently in case you missed them:








See you all in August!
