1 Year Ago Today (+ A Lesson Learned!)

I just had to share the above image (terrible quality but with purpose) with you guys.  I posted it on my Instagram yesterday to announce that it had officially been one year since I found out I was pregnant with Essley.  In the caption, it said: "One year ago today we found out Essley was coming.  Now we've got a little best friend."  Immediately I started getting texts, comments, and emails from people who thought we were announcing another pregnancy.  Oops!  Once I looked at the image and caption I realized how confusing I made it.  No more quick posts to Instagram that involve anything having to do with major life events on days when my brain is working overtime!  Lesson learned.

All that said, it was one year ago (yesterday, technically) that we got our positive pregnancy test after many months of trying, and life was never the same again.  I love Essley so much it's almost ridiculous.  From finding out I was pregnant until now has been the most intense, amazing period of my life. I know I say this all the time, but I can't wait to see what comes next.

And that's it for today.  Short and sweet.  It's been a crazy busy week because Robbie is finally back home from tour for more than 48 hours (10 whole days this time!), so I've been frantically trying to catch up on work stuff while he and Essley have their daddy daughter bonding time.  I have a lot planned for the blog over the next week, including a huge giveaway, finally sharing Essley's birth story, and some style posts I'm especially excited about.  Enjoy your day!

  1. Awww her GD onesie is awesome!

  2. Cant wait to read the birth story. Have a great week friend. xo

  3. At first I thought you were making another announcement, too! I had to read your caption a couple of times, haha.

  4. That must have been really exciting when you got that reading on the stick a year ago! Love Essley's smile :)

  5. Aw, sweet picture and funny about the mix up. Those things happen all the time on twitter/instagram. It's so easy to misinterpret things online! :)

  6. LOL I saw that insta- post and giggled.
    And no doubt that a love like that IS ridiculous, because there will never be a greater love. =0)

    Can't wait to see your upcoming posts. I loved your sister's outfit. Maybe she could guest post sometime (and share her pretty eye makeup too)? It seems like her style is right there with your great style!

    Have a great time with Robbie being home. Maybe share some family photos too? heheh...I'm getting super needy, aren't I? ;)

  7. How exciting! Look forward to seeing more about Essley!

  9. Oops! That's a funny mix up. She's so cute. Such an exciting time.
