Museum Piece

I had a rude realization last night. As I was cleaning out my craft corner of the soon-to-be nursery, I realized I had to put my wedding dress away into some kind of storage. It has long (almost 1 whole year) been on display in our guest room for all to stare at in awe. I liked it that way. It justly deserved it. But now, there is a new favorite possession I am going to have to focus on. It screams and poops but is infinitely more rewarding. I didn't have the heart to put the dress somewhere more permanent right now so it has taken up residence in the closet of the nursery. It will remain there until I come to terms with the fact that I will never get to wear it again. I've often toyed with the idea of putting it back on for some photos. Greg and I had a photographer that lacked inspiration or creativity at our wedding and I deeply regret missing out on some photos we wanted. Money, time and the post-wedding weight kept pushing that wish back. Now it's been a whole year and I have a person growing inside me. I don't think its ever going to happen or if it did, it would just be ridiculously silly. There are new dreams to grab onto now. I can be okay with that. I will be okay with that.

About Me

My photo
I'm a new wife and an even newer mom. I have a secret dream to be super-mom. I love to craft, cook, dance and fill my life with as many adventures as possible. I'm slightly crunchy granola but enjoy a good steak. I'm right brained and type B (with some type A tendencies). I thrive best when I get to use my creative juices. I dabble in photography and party planning. I play piano and have a dream to learn the cello. I want to make the most of this one, short life I find myself living.

About This Blog

This blog was originally intended to be a personal journal of my pregnancy journey and all that that entails--shared with only a few close family members. It was a way for me to keep them posted on all things baby and occasionally post a picture of my growing torso so they could see the progress. After several posts, I started to get hooked on other blogs and became motivated to attempt to do more with mine. We'll see how it goes....
