It feels like such an odd time to be sharing celebratory news with everything that’s going on in the world, but we have an exciting update from our corner of the universe…our little family will be expanding this Fall!

We are absolutely thrilled and excited, but also nervous with a new set of emotions from my first pregnancy. Nori still feels like my baby to me (and probably always will), and fills my heart…but also seemingly all of my energy these days, especially while in quarantine in our small space. I know there’ll be a lot of changes with newborn plus active toddler life, but one reassuring thing is seeing so many of you mamas doing it with grace!

The other difference about this pregnancy is how we got here. The first question from family and friends we’ve shared the news with has been whether we did IVF, so I wanted to be open here. Having gone through IVF with Nori, we were very hopeful to not have to go through it again. Especially right now, so many infertility treatments have been paused or cancelled during COVID, and it breaks my heart for mamas-to-be who are left waiting in limbo.

We started trying naturally for a second child last year, and frankly I expected we’d try for a year or two and then possibly go down the road of fertility treatments again. Well, things work in mysterious ways because here we are…

I didn’t tell anyone, even close friends the first few weeks, in fear that it was too good to be true. A small part of me wishes I had a little more time to resurface for air from our whirlwind toddler, but I’m embracing how we got here and am so excited for Nori to be a big sister!

As for this blog, I hope to continue sharing everything I love, which will always include fashion! Like with my first pregnancy, I’ll be wearing a lot of forgiving, non-maternity pieces, and have been doing my best to include measurements on clothing featured so you guys can continue to have a reliable reference point.

Thanks so much for sharing in our journey over the past decade – I can’t wait to continue growing and learning from this beautiful community.
