Life Changers. We all experience them, expected and unexpected, good and bad. From graduating high school, to going away to college, to starting a first job, to moving into a new home, to getting married, and so many more. Each of these milestones are life changers, those moments where life veers onto another path.
I’ve had another life changer.
I’m excited. I’m nervous. It’s my first time for this. And like ever other change, I will enjoy ever moment of it! I’m going to be a mom.
WE’RE HAVING A BABY BOY!!!
I found out the day after my book premier party. I remember feeling nauseous during the party, but I just took it for being nervous. But then the next day the feeling continued. I took the home pregnancy test and the result was positive. Woohoo! I thought to myself that as one book is wrapping up and new one is about to begin. I spent 3 years working on thedream and production of Inspired Celebrations book. Then when the writing was barely finished, a whole new chapter of my “Book” opened up and I didn’t even write it. Its been an extraordinary journey, one that feels different in every stage, every day.
As a planner, I wanted to work out the exact moment that this would happen. But as we all know…there are things in life that are not meant to be scheduled. Beginning a pregnancy at the peak of the summer wedding season didn’t seem to be ideal. But I could not control or pinpoint the exact date like a wedding would, it just happens. It’s just real life.
Luckily, Skybox is strong and the staff is amazing! We’ve had such a great opportunity to grow and learn from each other, and we have such a firm foundation that we can really excel as a team and as a business. Although this little one will bring lots of change, for Skybox it will be business as usual. As a team we made it through the summer weddings and also along my first trimester.
Through all of this, Albert has been so supportive, even though neither of us know how to do this… it’s both scary and exciting. Our first little Lay! But without Albert’s support, I don’t know how I would have made it through this busy summer. Now, as we move forward, we’ve decided to just enjoy the moment. It all changes so fast that we don’t want to lose sight of the little things along the way. No need to stress about the baby room or the due date, it’s the process that’s to be enjoyed for now.
This has been such a new experience but also refreshing for us both. The excitement that builds and the anticipation that grows, but with an unpredictability that is sure to make a planner crazy. But to bring a life into this world is helping me reevaluate my perspective, and knowing that I’m expecting change this big is helping me relearn why I love what I do.
We’re having a baby. A “baby” life-changer that will be hugely impactful. I can’t wait!
