Where I've Been....

Wow! As I look back at my last post dated November 8th, 2012 I can't believe it's been so long. Well..... actually I can. Time only flies when you're having fun. Thats what they say right? 
When I look back on the past 3 months, time certainly has not flown by. Time has stood still.

I read in a poem long ago, that "Futures have a way of falling down in midflight." This, I now know to be true.
As many of you know, I was pregnant with twins. On November 20th at just 28 weeks, I unexpectedly went into labor, and little did I know that on that very day my life would change forever.

But today is not the day to tell my story. It's a story I want to share and WILL share when the time feels right, because it's an important part of my journey. Just not today. It's too soon.

 Life is full of unexpected surprises, and I have chosen to live my life focused on the POSITIVE.
So, today I want to celebrate THIS...........

THIS is my beautiful son!
 Thomas Michael Andrew 
Born: November 20, 2012 at 2:08PM. 
2lbs 13 ounces and 14 1/2 inches long. 

He is my little thumb sucking miracle! He's already been through so much in his 3 short months of life but he is a fighter.
He's my little peaceful warrier!
 I admire his strength. His strength gives ME strength. He has already saved me in more than one way and he doesn't even know it, and I can't believe how much I love him. ( :

So, this is what I've been up to. I thank my lucky stars every day for this little boy. As I said before, on November 20, 2012 my life changed forever, BUT it changed for the better.
My days are now filled with feedings, diaper changes, A LOT more laundry and little baby kisses, and I wouldn't have it any other way! The exhaustion that so many new moms complain about? I welcome it! I welcome it because I now know how precious life can be, and most of all...... I owe it to my son.

So get ready people! I've become one of "THOSE people!" I will be blogging and gushing about this little guy, but no worries! It will still be full of SIMPLE recipes, fashion, decor and a little bit of inspiration.

Have a beautiful day everyone!

My friend, you have been on my mind so much lately. I worked out the other day that you would be a mum by now and came to your blog to find your email address as my new system has lost some of my contacts. I've sent you lots of love and best wishes. I realise there is also pain in this story, but I'm so happy for you to have your son. big hugs from me. xx
