After I learned I was pregnant and shared the good news with my husband, we wanted to keep this secret to ourselves for a little while until we could decide the best ways to tell our family and friends. Those first days of my pregnancy didn't feel very different, other than the fact that I knew I was pregnant.
I made my first doctor's appointment, stopped drinking the occasional glass of wine, continued to take my prenatal vitamins, and felt slightly more tired than normal (like, falling asleep on the couch in the afternoons because I couldn't keep my eyes open, tired), but I was still waiting for the "real" pregnancy symptoms to begin. That was one of my biggest fears leading up to pregnancy--the fear of being very sick and miserable the entire time, and the fear of the unknown. Thankfully, by the grace of God, this has not been the case for me.
I'm excited to finally share the design and mood board for the second most used space in our home, the family room! Now that our "secret" is out about our little love on the way, you can see why we have been more motivated to get these final interior house projects finished and get our home really ready for our growing family.
Because we spend so much time in here, and will continue to do so with a new baby, our family room needed some extra attention. We needed new furniture that would allow for a better use of our space within the existing layout, and that would highlight the painted brick fireplace while allowing you to still watch TV. During their "Buy More, Save More" sale, we recently purchased cozy, family-friendly furniture from Pottery Barn. We chose the PB Comfort Grand Armchairs and Grand Sofa in a performance fabric (Heathered Tweed in Pebble) so that it would withstand anything life (and pets and babies) throw at it. I love that these pieces will stand the test of time, both in style and durability.
We are so happy to announce that we are expecting! Last week, we announced that our little family will be growing by one late this fall. Now that I'm into my second trimester and feeling more like myself and much more motivated, I wanted to recap what those first moments were leading up to our present journey.
