I’ve been keeping a little secret from you guys.  Well, it was little to begin with, but this week it’s the size of a sweet potato…

yup, we’re having a baby!

I’m due mid-February, and we are really excited for Noah to be a big brother!  We’ve been talking to him about it, and it seems like he’s starting to get it (a little), but I think he’ll REALLY get it once #2 is here.  I mean, it’s hard for me to fully wrap my mind around some days, and I’m not a toddler!

I’ve been feeling pretty good these days, although 1st tri was less fun.  Also, it has been fun getting a few new maternity things this time around, since all my clothes from last time were summer (July baby!) and this time I get to wear sweaters, leggings, and other lovely warm & snuggly things.  Speaking of which, the tunic I’m wearing in this month’s self-portrait comes from LulaRoe, who makes my favorite maxi skirt of all time.  They have started carrying way more than maxis now, and I am loving these tops that I can pair with my favorite leggings!

So here I am, 4 months along, and totally unknowing of the crazy fun hard awesome that is to come.

You might remember Annie and Nathan’s surprise engagement that happened back in March.  I got to hide behind a sand dune and snipe-photograph her “yes” on the foggiest, most awesome beach engagement ever!  They were giddy in love, and none of that has changed.  Now, it’s official– they’re husband and wife, and Mike and I had the blessing of enjoying their special wedding day to the fullest (Mike as a groomsman, me as happy guest!).

Nathan’s family asked me to photograph their delightful rehearsal and dinner, and it was such a treat.  This family is fantastic, and they had every detail lovingly in place at a beautiful pavilion in Winston-Salem’s Tanglewood Park.  As we watched the rehearsal take place with Nathan and Annie’s closest friends and family, my heart was really full for these two sweet people.  It’s such a joy to watch (and get to photograph!) such love and kindness.

Twinkly lights and gorgeous mason jar flower centerpieces were just the cherry on top of the delightful dinner celebration.
