that time I forgot I had a blog


That picture is to make sure you don't forget about me…because, seriously, I've meant to blog every day for the past couple weeks. Between work, raising that sweet bean there and dealing with late pregnancy pains, I've been a big, hectic mess! But, it's been the best kind of mess! My shop, Black River Boutique, has been doing pretty well, and I'm loving being able to get all the pretty fabrics and share my love of baby goodies with the world. 

Plus, I've only told a few people, but I'll let it be known, it's my pipe dream to someday make it my real little business…my only job. Dare to dream, folks!




I promised a ton of pictures a while back and failed at that, too, but I'm slowly getting around to it! Things have been getting sunnier and warmer (for the most part) up here in NY, but then we suddenly get hit with another cold snap, which has been frustrating. A couple weeks ago, it was 70 and beautiful, and we walked in shorts to get ice cream. The next couple days are in the 40s and show snow in the forecast.

We're doing our best to get out though because Spencer deserves it, first and foremost, and life's going to change so drastically in the next few weeks, as well! I think Spencer knows something is about to change. My little man has never been a cuddler, but all of a sudden, he wants to cuddle and snuggle all the time - on his terms, of course!

I'm relishing these moments because pretty soon, my baby won't be my only baby anymore. He'll be the big brother, and that's mind-boggling. We're so very blessed, and I really need to take more time to document it all. I promise, promise, promise I'll get better at it. Hand to God :)

  1. Hang in there this last little bit - I know you are loving all the baby snuggles with Spencer! I am in the same place - I have about 5 posts in my head that I haven't had the time to get the photos for. One day...

    Also, congratulations on the shop! Who knows, it might just take off!
