One of the things I love the most about this dress is the skirt, that full skirt, the fit the way it falls. It makes me feel all lady and does the most splendid job of fitting me and hiding all manner of things, but there is one thing I can't hide much longer.
Front on style pics are just not going to do anymore, I've been keeping secrets. Ben and I are expecting another sweet addition to the brood in August. Pretty much smack bang around my 35th birthday. Oh and before you ask, yes I did tell a little fib in my style post this week, about putting weight on. It is still very true I struggle with putting weight on, but the reasons why things are a little different at the moment are now obvious as you see. I'm sure you'll forgive the white lie won't you?
It is an incredibly big leap (a leap of faith) to be doing any sort of announcement post especially rolled into a style post, if you are aware of my significant pregnancy history and loss. But I shan't speak anymore about that just now, I'll save it for another type of post very soon.
For now it's a time for me and my wee little family to be hopeful, happy and positive and share this exciting news with you all. It's a big brave step for me and in my healing process in the last five years to be at a point of comfort and optimism to be opening myself to sharing this all with you and as candidly as I will.
