Our New Arrival

Shortly before Christmas {Christmas Eve Eve to be exact}, Matt and I welcomed our son, Campbell James Midgett into the world. I can’t wait to share the story of his birth and how incredible every moment since then has been  {although, I’m so clueless on what I’m doing}, but at this point, I can barely string sentences together. It’s so funny, I thought people were being dramatic when they said they didn’t have time to do anything once their baby arrived, but now I realize how true it is. Feeding, changing, bathing, cuddling with, staring at Campbell are my top priorities and then everything else comes after that. Needless to say, I’m lucky if I sleep/brush my teeth/shower and have barely left the house {which is good because who wants to be around a smelly grease ball?}. But no matter how dirty/gross I may get, how delirious I may be or how many breakdowns I may have {yup, it can be pretty challenging}, it has totally been worth it! Anywho, I just wanted to do a quick post about our sweet son and will be back at some point with the birth story, nursery pics and eventually fashion/interior related posts once again.  I hope you all had a great holiday!

Oh PS if you have any questions about giving birth or newborns, feel free to email me and I can address them in my next post! Not that I’m some expert, but I bombard my mom friends with questions all day long, so if I can help anyone, I’d be happy to!

I basically can’t stop dreaming about it. In homage to Valentino’s all white collections from the 60’s, bohemian shifts, capes and ethereal gowns in lace, chiffon and silks were created. The last look {shown above} is my absolute favorite. It could be THE most gorgeous wedding gown. If I could have all the money spent on my wedding, multiply that by 5, I think I could buy it!
