The last few days I’ve gotten a great reminder of how it feels to feel normal…almost.
It’s so easy to take for granted the ability to get up, take a shower, get ready, and get junk done all.day.long. It’s only when that ability has been taken from me for weeks on end that I’ve appreciated the little things.
Like getting dressed. And not just sweats and a tee with a 3 day old ponytail. An actual outfit, with clean hair, makeup, and the energy to take pictures while the lighting is good. I totally took that for granted.
Sweater: Target, Top: Anthropologie, Shorts: c/o Old Navy via Crowdtap, Shoes: Burlington, Watch: Michael Kors
As I’m approaching the end of the first trimester, I’m excited to enjoy the life the way I used to. Showers, real food, showers, energy to do more than 1 thing in a day, clean clothes, showers….I’ve really missed showering without it zapping all my energy.
I’m also super excited to figure out how to dress this growing body of mine. With LJ, I was teaching all day and dead by the weekend, so I didn’t need much of a wardrobe. The same 3 pairs of work pants, 2 dresses, and 6 or so tops got me through. This time I’m excited to see how I can make my normal clothes work and incorporate new maternity items (like my super comfy new Old Navy shorts that may or may not have been on day 5 or so when these pics were taken) to make a more exciting wardrobe.
So here’s to getting over the hump….sooner or later!
