Spring in Cleveland

Spring in Cleveland feels like it came early this year! It’s been such an abnormally mild winter and now spring is right on time. We’re having mostly warm days and the flowers are blooming. I am in love with this season. I went outside to take some pictures of the flowers.

These are everywhere. They are very fragrant and I can smell them all up and down the street.


Here they are again, from farther away.


…And some yellow ones. I don’t know what they are. ๐Ÿ˜›


Now if only it could be spring or summer all year long in Ohio.



I wanted to take some time on this post to share the most exciting part of my life right now! I am expecting a baby in July. It’s a little girl and her name is Lydia. This is my first and let me tell you; pregnancy is a ROLLER COASTER. My emotions have never been so out of whack, and talk about bodily changes… DAMN. All of this will be well worth the end result. I couldn’t be happier.

I also wanted to share some ultrasounds. They are so good it’s a little scary! It’s hard to believe that little person is inside of me. Except for when she moves. That’s the best part of my day. Sometimes the kicks are so big I can see my belly jump from the outside. I’m currently about 26 weeks along. I hope you find these pictures almostย as fascinating as I do. ๐Ÿ˜›ImageImageImage

It’s a girl…!

Hey WordPress, this is my first post… ever.

I’m starting off by sharing a couple of baby shower invitations that I made over the weekend. Think they need some work? I’d love some feedback. ๐Ÿ™‚

I’m just getting started with these. They are very simple. I used rubber stamps and an ink pad, some ribbon, and printed cardstock-type paper with different designs. I got all of my supplies at Pat Catan’s.
