the begin

:: deep breath ::

new adventures are always intense for me. and this is most certainly the newest and strangest adventure i have ever undertaken.

writing a mommy blog was never something i would have ever imagined that i would be doing, especially not at this season in my life. i've written and continue to write at my inspirational blog, a place where my poetic side flows out.

and now i'm pregnant. dropped from a plane into foreign territory, and in some respects, feeling the culture shock already.

i'm twelve and a half weeks along, due around the first week of September. one appointment thus far with an illusive heartbeart but still strong and fierce in all its teasing and darting around to keep from being found.

and so this is new. and fresh. a clean slate with no mistakes in it, as of yet. and i know i will make mistakes, and i know that i will be evaluated and people will make their own comments and whispers. and i am okay with that, because i am held in the hand of the One who knows me best.

i have a supportive husband, and quite the incredible family. this is my in-laws third grandchild, and my parents' first. my father is giddy, and my mother is already making plans to spoil this baby.

this is a new adventure. and i am nervous, but i am brave.
