New Beginnings...

Beginnings are always hard--especially when they're new beginnings--new school, new job, new places... This beginning is no different.

They're hard because you don't know what to expect. You don't know if or how you'll succeed. You don't know who you'll meet along the way. It's a time of excitement and terror; joy and fear; emotions of opposite extremes running side by side in your life.

From experience, I've mastered new schools, new jobs, new places... so history should repeat itself and allow me to be successful at this new beginning as well. However, this one is a bit more complicated...

So before we delve into that whole situation, let's get some basics out of the way, like, who am I? Some of you may know me as Kristen from glitter, gloss, and glaze--the beauty and lifestyle blog I've been keeping for just about a year now. Some of you may know me as Kristen in real life. Some of you may not know me at all, but you're starting out on a new beginning of your own and just want to follow someone so you don't feel so alone. How ever and whomever you know me as really isn't important at this point.

You see, in about five months, everything we know about me is going to change because-----I'm going to be a mommy. Omg, it seems crazy to even write something like that! But yes, I am currently 17 weeks along (I supposedly have 160 days left to go... if that puts it in perspective for you;) Baby seems to be doing well! (as far as I can tell, lol. I'm still not feeling anything and it's not like i can see Baby on a regular basis, but as of the last appointment on Friday, Baby's heart is strong and everything is looking good:)

You'll learn more about me as we go along. I'll share tidbits here and there as we get to know each other more. Right now, I just had to get the first post of this blog done. I don't know if mommy blogging is just like beauty blogging or not... But this is my journey to find out.

This is one beauty blogger's journey to motherhood.... care to join me?:)

  2. OMG! How did I not know about this blog?! I love pregnancy, and I'm so excited you are sharing this journey! It's such a special time, worrying about what to do and what not to do, the new-mommy-butterflies (I remember them like it was yesterday), and of course the moment you meet your baby for the first time - instant love and adoration <3
