Ok, I owe ya'll an update. It's been a while.
Well, I am now into my second trimester (just a 2 weeks in) and thank goodness some of the morning sickness has lightened up a bit. I'm still having trouble eating and I've lost a little more weight but I'm feeling much better. I am learning my limits as a pregnant woman and learning more about the changes my body is going through.
My fiancee, Andrew, is being very supportive and is VERY excited about being a daddy just as I am VERY excited about being a mommy. I know it's gonna be a challenge and our lives are in the process of changing forever but we are both ready and willing to be the best parents we can possibly be.
We decided 2-3 weeks ago to postpone the wedding till next year. After the decision was made I was extremely relieved. I had been so sick that I knew planning a wedding would make things even worse and I really don't need any more stress than I already have right now.
On to my crochet life as of late........ I have some wonderful news for ya'll. One of my designs has been accepted for Crochet Worlds Dec Issue and I also just found out a week ago that this design will also be featured in the winners circle. I am soooo ecstatic. This has fulfilled a life long dream of mine.
Speaking with my dad yesterday I was reminded of exactly how long I had been dreaming about becoming a published designer. Apparently I had been dreaming about it since I was approximately 10 years old (13 years ago). It took a long time to achieve my goal but I'm so glad I stuck with it.
This post is already really long and I still have pictures to post so I'm gonna finish this post off and get some pictures up of all the things I've been working on.
