A New Beginning

The day before Emma was born
Well, I've decided to blog again. I've actually gotten pregnant, had a baby, and finished my 8 weeks of maternity leave since my last post. Yeah, it's been that long. So, I'm starting over.

Emma Fay
I've been off work for the last 8 weeks, the fastest 8 weeks of my life by the way, following my C-section and the birth of our daughter Emma. She has been such a blessing to Jake and I. I have to admit, I didn't think that being a mom was going to be this amazing. We asked Saremy to be Emma's godparents and we are blessed that they agreed. 

In the last year, Jake and I have been on 2 cruises. One with Saremy to the western Caribbean and one with just the 2 of us to the Mexican Riviera. We found out we were pregnant on December 27th and announced it to our families January 1st at church. 

The last 8 weeks have been a a change for the better. We stay at home and cook healthy meals more often, I've been re energized and motivated about cleaning and organizing my house, and I've been inspired to blog again. Check out my other blog, The Simplicity Adventure, to follow my journey to a more organized and less cluttered life. I started today by going through my closet and dresser and getting rid of a lot of clothes. I have a lot more to do, but that will come with time.

Baby K'Tan
As I'm typing Emma is curled up on my chest and belly in my Baby K'Tan sleeping soundly. I'm thinking she will be able to teach me a lot about what really matters in life. I can't wait to be able to share what I learn. 

Until next time...
