Hello Friends,

It has been a while since I have posted and I apologize for that! But my husband and I welcomed our beautiful baby boy, Hudson Theodore into this world on June 29th. He is probably the most perfect and precious little thing I have ever seen. However, I am sure every mother says that about their baby. 🙂 Becoming a mother has been wonderful but it is definitely an adjustment. I can honestly say I have never been this exhausted. So many people warn you but no one can prepare you for it. The first week was worse then I imagined, all I kept thinking was that I won’t ever get to sleep again. One night Hudson was crying and I woke up thinking I wasn’t sure if I could keep doing this. I couldn’t believe how unbelievably tired I was. As I picked him up from his crib he looked up at me and smiled and it suddenly made everything better. It didn’t matter how tired I was, it didn’t matter that the house was a mess, or that I hadn’t showered in days, I had a perfectly handsome healthy baby boy in my life and that’s all that mattered. I would truly do anything for him. I finally felt like his mother and I loved it.


I look up to mothers so much more now. Becoming a mother makes you appreciate your own mother and mothers everywhere a whole lot more. I am only two months in and I already realize how much you have to do and give up for your child. However, I have realized that motherhood is a wonderful gift from God and I wouldn’t trade it for anything. The Lord has blessed me with a wonderful husband who is such a wonderful father to Hudson. I have loved seeing my husband Ross transition into being a father. My mother always said “When you see how much your husband loves your children, you will love your husband like never before.” That is the truth!


Now that I finally feel like I have a routine down I will be posting on the blog at least once a week! I will be blogging about my DIY projects & DIY fails, decorating our home, and bits & pieces of my journey as a new momma. I have been saving up lots of projects and I can’t wait to share them with you.  But first a few pictures of our sweet baby boy Hudson Theodore…..
