Well hello blogging world! I took a bit of an unexpected hiatus from blogging on Beauty & Bows because life has been, in a word, BUSY! But lots of wonderful things have been happening!

Since we’ve announced our pregnancy:

  • Daniel got a new job with a great company in downtown Wichita
  • I got a new car (baby friendly!)
  • We found out we are having a GIRL! (see Instagram announcement video, here)
  • Daniel and I took a babymoon to Santa Fe, New Mexico & Manitou Springs, CO (fully documented on Instagram…of course)

Baby White is now officially 20 weeks along! She is halfway done! Can you believe it?! I feel her move every day now, especially while in the car!
This journey of motherhood so far has been overwhelmingly amazing. It is such a privilege to be a vessel to carry this tiny life. Yes, I pee every 15 minutes and am hungry ALL the time, but it is all a part of this special journey of God knitting her together in my womb!
Lately I just daydream about what my baby girl’s life will be like. I pray for her, cry for her (yep), laugh for her, and put my hand on my belly to be as close to her as I possibly can. I’m already so thankful and attached to this little one. icon smile Easter & Updates

For Easter this year, Daniel and I went to church and spent the entire day with family. It was wonderful.
This vintage dress was found in Santa Fe at the MOST amazing resale shop called Double Take. If you are ever near Santa Fe…GO! This dress was a mere $12 and just 1 of the many treasures I found there.
Daniel’s awesome knit tie was also found 2nd hand in Santa Fe.

I hope all of YOU are doing great. I’m looking forward to getting Beauty & Bows back in action and interacting more with this awesome online community! Blessings!

We got to hear the baby’s heartbeat yesterday for the first time. It was one of the most incredible moments of my life! I am over the moon with joy and gratitude to my Savior for blessing us with this miracle!

Be sure to watch for bump-fashion and updates! I’ve been a bit sick and quite exhausted (have you noticed a lack of posts lately?), but it is all worth it!

Slouchy

Not gonna lie, all this snow has left little motivation for putting much thought into what I’m wearing. All I can think about is just staying warm! Thankfully this awesome slouchy beanie and these fair aisle leggings from Daily Charms have helped me do just that!
