I thought since I’ve been a little absent over the past month or so I should probably give you a little more information on this big project I keep mentioning that’s been keeping me from JK Style (and Splendry, and cleaning my house, cooking, pretty much everything!) It’s not another movie to style or a fabulous fashion project that’s keeping me tied up. So what is it?
I KNOW. I’m still freaking out!
While my first trimester was nothing to complain about, the ONE thing that made me feel sick was working! I’m guessing the computer caused some car sickness-like feelings so while I tried for a few weeks to work in small increments (usually followed by having to go to bed immediately for a few hours) over the last couple of weeks I quit fighting it and just let things sit for a bit! (I’m very thankful for the ability to reschedule older posts!)
Now that I’ve hit the second trimester I’m feeling MUCH better about working and now have some energy back too! Now I need to get caught back up and then try to stay on track (and even get ahead) as I prepare for this baby’s arrival in December! (My due date is the 22nd.) While I definitely plan to keep working on both websites, I’m going to try to cut myself a little slack over the coming months. Posts might not be scheduled five times a week, newsletters might be a bit more sporadic, and my Instagram account might go untouched for weeks at a time. And that’s OK! I’m trying to let myself rest when I need it and I’m also tackling a major house clean-out/make-room-for-a-baby project! I hope you’ll bear with me while I adjust to things and this newfound exhaustion. :)
Obviously I’ll be sharing more about this pregnancy over the coming months (hello maternity style!) but if babies and pregnancy aren’t your thing, no worries, I promise not to turn this blog into a total baby fest/mom blog. There are plenty of those out there already and I just want to talk about clothes! And shoes! And makeup! (Baby Reed I promise your mom isn’t completely vain and does have other interests in life!) ;)
Thanks for hanging in there with me and I’m excited to see what’s in store for the rest of the year!
