week 21 ::: spaghetti squash

The bump may be noticeabe now! My little spaghetti squash (haha). And prenatal yoga is ahhhh-mazing. Not much else to report, other than I should definitely get to prepping on things like—the nursery. Long weekend ahead = perfect time to start. Enjoy your short work week!

week 20 ::: mango

Halfway whaaaa??!!!! Apparently I have been pregnant for 5 months...and hardly realized it. How can this be?! And those little movements I thought I was feeling, oh they are very much unmistakable. This little sprout feels like a gymnast in my lower belly. Starting to get excited that this is real!

How was your weekend? Mine was pretty mild. Though my husband did break his nose Saturday during flag football. That thing called insurance, it came in super handy. Now looking forward to a mild week as well. Wishing you a great one!

week 19 ::: pomegranate

The weekly photos continue! Feeling a bit more this week like things are becoming noticeable. And maybe, just maybe, I can feel little movements. Or perhaps I'm only feeling indigestion.

I hope you had a great weekend! I've got a lovely wedding post in the works, hoping to share soon!

week 18 ::: onion

Anyone else loving the crisp fall weather? This week I had to get some of those lovely autumn colors in my weekly pregnancy photos. The bump is still not very noticable—to anyone other than my wardobe waistline.

week 17 ::: turnip

It is shocking to me that in a few short weeks I'll be halfway to meeting MY baby. A baby that is half me & half my husband. HOW is this possible?! And I do very much need to start tackling the before babe to do list.

Is everyone else super busy this time of year? Last week I worked on an amazing photoshoot, and this week I'll be decorating for a big gala event. Lots of fun in the works! (You can always follow my weekly adventures via my instagram)

Have a fantastic week, everyone!

week 16 ::: apple

A fine fall fruit for this week. I'll confess that I've already purchased a few maternity outfits. It sure didn't take long for me to feel incredibly uncomfortable in my current waistband. Ah well!

week 15 ::: avocado

The pounds should start coming fast nowadays. And I'm visiting my newborn niece & nephew so the baby anticipation/excitement is also on the rise. Enjoy your week while I enjoy twin snuggles!

week 14 ::: lemon

A week ago I denied there was a bump and said it looks like I've just eaten a large burrito. But a few days ago I embraced that I may be showing (though I admit it looks super obvious in pic 1).

Bye bye pencil skirt, you were fun for all of 10 min. Perhaps we'll meet again years from now.

Happy Monday to you—hoping you have an amazing week!

first trimester ::: fruit of the womb

Obviously there are many adorable ways to document a pregnancy. Deciding which I wanted to do was a challenge, but I loved everything about this approach. The "fruit of the womb" concept has been done before, most beautifully by Carolee Beckham. I love the agrarian aspect, but also the very tangible representation of the miracle that is taking place inside my body. Still can't believe it.

So each Monday I hope to update my pregnancy journal with a little photoshoot. And I also plan to post a few other non-baby related posts in between as well.

fall farm wedding {part 2}

The fall wedding gorgeousness continues! After guests minglinged for the cocktail hour, they made their way down the hill to the ceremony location under this enormous elegant tree.

The tree itself has an incredible story, being struck by lightening and damaged so that half of it was laying completely horizontal. By some nature miracle, it was able to recover and appears unscathed. A somewhat decent metaphor for marriage, eh?

After the ceremony, the children were handed a farm map with a clue to their next adventure. Who doesn't love a good scavenger hunt?!

Their hunt ends at the large wrap around porch, where guests are preparing to feast.

This porch had a "decent" view of the Mississippi river. No big deal. Also down by this view was a large bonfire and s'more bar.

The tables were covered with paper and we had written little love quotes scattered throughout at random.

While completely amazing up to this point, this wedding would not be complete without a pie buffet. A delicious one. All baked by friends and family.

What a day! I still have amazing memories of the fun we had, both with the small planning team that pulled everything together and celebrating the couple together. Sharing my creative skills with wonderful people that truly deserve celebration brings constant gratification to my life. Happy Anniversary Chris & Jen!
