Change is hard you guys, am I right? I do NOT deal well with it. Like at all! The past few months have been rough, I am not going to lie. Our family has had one unfortunate thing after another happen so much so that my favorite sayings these days are “its just one more thing” and “it’s fine, really it’s fine”.
My husband had a major health scare earlier this spring, one that really put things into perspective for me and I think our whole family. It was scary you guys, and it really freaked me out. He is OK now as long as he does what he needs to do and listens to his doctors. While all of this is going on, we are in the middle of building a house and trying to get ours ready to go on the market. Super exciting, I know! I am beyond giddy but a little sad too. Change is hard.
I love my little newborn studio in my basement. It is my happy place. I built most of my newborn business in this sweet little space. It really well works for me and my clients. I did not realize just how attached I am to this little spot. Don’t get me wrong, my new home boasts some amazing things for me and my clients – a private entry, bigger studio space and so much more. I can’t even begin to tell you how excited I am to create this space from the ground up. BUT it will be a while…….18 months or so before I will be in the newly finished basement space. Not to worry Mama’s I will still have a newborn studio space! While the permanent one is being finished, I will have my sessions in a spare room in the new house.
There is so much to be excited for! I just have to allow myself to be adaptable which isn’t easy for me. I am the kind of person who unpacks the entire house in one day because I can’t stand the mess and the feeling of not having everything in its place. So I ask you Mama’s to bear with us – know that we are still going to be giving you the same amazing experience that we are so well known for, it just may be a little more hectic for a while. And there is so much to look forward to! New beginnings just come with some growing pain!
I feel so fortunate that I get to call this work. Who else gets to wake up every single day and help families celebrate life & love? I love that I get to tell their story. It is incredible to be able to create a moment in amongst all of the chaos that is new parenthood, where new moms and dads can really just focus on that amazing, tiny human that they created. I am pretty lucky if you ask me!
