Journey

With these high temperatures this summer, it’s time to reveal my hottest accessory yet! It comes in all shapes and sizes and is the perfect thing to carry around for at least 9 months out of the year!

I aquired this accessory about 9 weeks and 3 days ago. You see I’ve had one before but it outgrew me so I decided to get another one. I mean, hello? That first accessory has been the best thing I’ve owned!

If you haven’t figured it out by now (which I’m sure you have 😂) I am now going to be sporting a baby bump! Though it might be small right now it shall continue to grow ❤️.  We’re beyond thrilled to invite this little bambino into our little family. I am still in shock that we finally made the decision to grow our family and it happened quite quickly.  We have been asked by many for the past 6 years if we were going to have another one. The truth is I thought we were finished. But then something happened. Our little Miss Harper was starting to ask for one and then come to find out her daddy wanted another one too. I was a little more reluctant because I’m 35 now which I know can “put me at risk” and I had all these questions in my head, “what if it changes the dynamic of our family drastically and makes things really hard on us”, “what if Harper feels left out” or “what if we can’t handle the extra responsibility and it puts a strain on our family”, and “I have all these life goals I’m trying to go for, what if they don’t happen?”

I came to realize that my worries were a mixture of fear and selfishness. First of all, all of these worries WILL happen at some point in our lives because life isn’t perfect. There will be moments in life that are rocky, I know because we’ve already experienced those. Is it hard? Absolutely! But it builds a stronger family foundation. The things we go through in life shape us into the humans we are called to be. I truly believe that. Sometimes we’re given tests where we feel we can’t see light at the end of the tunnel. But we have to put our big girl pants on and rise to the occasion. It helps when you have the right people and personalities to go through the trenches with you. If you don’t you’ll sink and let your fears smother you. I’m beyond lucky to have found that lifelong partner. We don’t give up on each other, just like you can’t give up on things when it gets tough. There are plenty of things out there worth fighting for.

So after all of that, I just want to thank you for reading and I can’t wait to share a new type of fashion. During my first pregnancy I tried my hardest to stay in non-maternity clothing for tops as long as possible. So for the next half of the year or so I’ll still be sharing fashion tips that will make sense for the everyday gal who is NOT expecting, but if you are expecting I’ll help you along this journey because maternity fashion can be the pits!

Your Faithfulness Dreamer,

Courtney

P.S. I absolutely adore this dress from Peyton & Peppy! I bought it a few months ago and couldn’t wait to wear it. Shortly after I found out I was expecting so I made sure to get a pic of me wearing it before I outgrow it 😂
