So what's been going on.... pregnancy and life update

It's been awhile!! Wow, time certainly does fly when you are busy! I haven't had a lot of time or energy to put into the blog lately. I told myself earlier this year that I wanted to start creating better content on this blog and giving this blog a face lift, but with that comes a need for, in my opinion anyways, a great work space (a great and comfortable work space creates great energy, creativity, inspiration and motivation for the work that you are doing). I haven't had a great space in my home that I feel great and productive in. To be honest, my current home has never felt like a home to me. I live in my husband's family home that most of his family members on his father's side has lived in at one point or another. It's a very very old house in a crappy area with crappy people. The house is in poor shape and it leaves my husband and I constantly overwhelmed and stressed out and we do what we can and make the best of what we have. Don't get me wrong... I am completely blessed and grateful for a roof over our heads no matter the condition, but it's not the ideal living conditions and we just can't afford to go anywhere else at the moment.

A "People Experience"





This still feels like a dream! The realization of how BIG this is did not hit me until much later after working on the project. It honestly didn't hit me until about 2 weeks before the issue hit newsstands. When I told family and contacts (on a need to know basis), they were telling me how huge of an accomplishment it was. I said, thanks or thank you and tried not to act like it was a huge deal.... even though it was! I didn't really feel the impact of the whole thing until much later. When People Magazine asked me to be a part of their Half Their Size issue, I was super excited and anxious, of course. You guys wanna know the whole story behind all of this and how it came to be?!
