Happy Monday all! A big thank you to everyone who continued to support the blog whilst I was on honeymoon and for your patience with my somewhat sporadic postings in the lead up to our wedding – it was indeed the best day of mine and my hubby’s life so far! Not everything went to plan…it rained, poured and even hailed on our wedding day, but we wouldn’t change a thing.I’ll be publishing my write up of our wedding over the next few days – so I hope you’ll tune and and that you enjoy. I actually feel incredibly nervous about unveiling it all.
Well, getting back to the little announcement…I am delighted to finally be able to shout from the rooftops that my Husband and I are expecting even more joy…as we are having a baby in the Spring!
Life threw us a little curve-ball ahead of the wedding and way back in July, after a couple weeks of feeling slightly strange and acting like I had the nose of a bloodhound it dawned on me that there was a chance I might be pregnant. Knowing we were about to embark on a romantic weekend away, I decided to quietly take a test; (really wasn’t expecting two lines!) lucky for me I did – as (after I’d picked Adam’s jaw off his desk) the next day my friends showed up to whisk me away on my surprise hen do…and so the secret was out amongst my girls. I was to be a knocked-up Bride!
It’s tough planning a wedding when you’ve an aversion to everything, when you’re retching over the mere thought of cake – let alone can’t ever envisage being able to enjoy it…and by the time I’d got home from work, having already battled to stay awake at my desk, an evening of table plans and wedding diy was, at times really hard graft…
But I was lucky. The timing couldn’t have been more perfect. As the wedding approached, so my 1st trimester symptoms began to wane and I suddenly started to not only feel myself again – but feel more alive and more energised – more full of life, than ever before. And being able to make our baby a part of our special day, has to have been the best wedding gift the world could have ever given us.
There was more than a little concern about how I’d squeeze into my form-fitting, oh-so-gorgeous Claire Pettibone gown…but thank goodness for Mama Spanx – they saved the day!
So there we are, our secret’s out. A new chapter as newlyweds and parents-to-be has began and we couldn’t be happier.
Big in-love-with-the-world goodness to you all,
Sarah, Boho Bride xx
P.S Whilst I was away Boho Bride turned 1 years old – so an enormous thank you to everyone who has dropped by, contributed, commented on and supported me and my blog on this wonderful journey…it’s been amazing so far and although I am no longer a planning Bride myself, I hope I can continue to help inspire those still enjoying their journey. There’s plenty more pretty to come! xxx
