This month I decided not to style a surface as such but chose to share a spot in our home which has taken on a whole new meaning for me in the past few days.
These photos are of our landing windowsill where we have a print that was gifted to us on our wedding day along with a photo of Wayne and I on one of our happiest days. I love this small nook of our house as it’s just the two of us and happy times.
As my due date approaches – and maybe this is pretty obvious – I’ve realised that in two short months (or maybe even less!) it will never be just the two of us ever again. There’s going to be a third mini penguin in the picture and everything is going to change.
The thought of family can mean different things to different people, and after things that have happened to us in the past few years, Wayne and I starting our own little family feels both amazing but overwhelming at the same time.
As the months of my pregnancy have ticked by and as we get the house ready for our new arrival, I’ve seen a whole other side of Wayne and just how caring and loving he is. I mean, he was both of those things already but it feels different – better – like our relationship has been taken to a whole new level. I know he’s going to be a brilliant dad and it makes me emotional to think of Wayne and I as someone’s parents. I know we are going to love our son more than anything in the world but it still seems too big to comprehend that there really is a new little person growing away in my belly and he will be here soon.
So yes, this windowsill might have looked like this for some time but this month it signifies how everything is changing. I’m nervous and excited and can’t wait!
Lots of August love,
