I don't know where summer went. Seems like it was just June last week. Life has been busy with getting ready for this baby, work and staying cool and I don't know what else! My camera, sadly, has sat on a shelf most of the summer. Life just feels like it's speeding by.
I never thought I would like plants. Always disliked them growing up. Hated having to water them and the mess they made when they would get knocked over, but guess what.. but now that I have my own home I find myself liking them and even wanting to plant a garden! I love that feeling of getting something to grow and look pretty! I can totally understand my moms love for plants now. Unfortunately the garden thing didn't work out for this year ( maybe next year!) but I did manage a few potted plants and herbs - thanks to my mom! Only have a few succulents so far but plan on expanding that collection!
Oh and I've only killed one so far so that isn't too bad? Love having a bit of outdoors inside, and loving that I can walk out my back door and have fresh herbs to cook with.

This blog has been neglected the past few months because our lives have completely changed due to this little one growing inside me. ♥ My husband and I couldn't be more happy. I'm so excited about this next phase in life. I've always dreamed of being a mother and it still seems so unreal that it's happening...such a different feeling having a little one inside of me..being able to feel it move and seeing my body change because of it. I so can't wait to meet this little one and hold it in my arms. ♥
