Live life to the fullest...

I am still here, I have just been SO tired...but I am not complaining!!  Every bit of nausea, every food aversion, and every time I feel I have lost all motivation to do anything, I feel so thankful!  All of these things mean that our little Pooh Bear is thriving *I hope*.  At this stage in my pregnancy I really have no way to know what is going on inside of my body but I am trying my best to stay positive for our sweet baby and do everything in my power to take care of him or her.  If only I had a crystal ball...

Last week was busy as Chris and I parted ways for the whole week.  He went to San Diego for work stuff and I decided to go to Charleston to spend some quality time with my family.  Our original plan was for me to join him in Cali but after finding out about our little one in tow, we decided that it was best for mama to keep her feet on the ground.  I was very emotional about us being apart for a week.  I know what most of you are thinking...a week?!?  Give me a break!  What you may not understand is that #1: I am extremely hormonal and #2: my husband and I are joined at the hip.  We are best friends and we do everything together, he is my rock and my favorite person to be around so to be apart for a week was a pretty big deal for us.  Thankfully, I had some good distractions with being at home AND I gained a whole week of being pregnant! This past Sunday marked 10 weeks :)

Chris brought me a very sweet gift from his trip.  Handcrafted metal art dragonflies!!  I have not decided where to hang them yet but it will definitely be someplace special.



The dragonflies came with this inscribed on a card by the artist...

"Native American tradition as well as many cultures throughout the world have, for thousands of years, recognized the dragonfly as a symbol of a positive life force.  The dragonfly is a reminder to "Live life to the fullest" and to make the most of our time on earth.  Its association with water also symbolizes purity, dreaming, happiness and change."

I swear sometimes I feel like Harper reaches me in the most unlikely ways.

The dragonflies are beautiful and such a good reminder to hold on to hope. What a special gift. <3 I smiled when you wrote about being apart from Chris for a week. Josh and I are the same way. I would have been in tears! :)

Wow, I didn't know dragonflies had that meaning! Now I'm even happier that we chose them for our nursery!
