The Biggest Project

I’ve been so busy lately with my latest and greatest project. It’s been taking up nearly all my time, so I figured I’d better share some photos.

Here I am in my “studio” working HARD


Oh…you want to see what I’m actually working on??? Okay…

But wait…there is more news!

ANDDDDD…the question you’ll all ask….

And now enough photos of me. On to the main event:

Now in the spirit of Thanksgiving, I’m grateful for my two dudes. The big one and the little one!

  2. YIPEEEEEEEEE! I knew this announcement was coming soon! We are soooo excited for you guys! Hopefully you are having a super easy pregnancy πŸ™‚ You are still tiny! I honestly look like I should be due next month…but nope, I'm just huge. Our kids will be 1 1/2 months apart…how fun!! CONGRATULATIONS!
