SNAPSHOTS FROM KYOTO, JAPAN

Our new social distancing normal has already taught me so much. I’ve learned how much the outside world feeds my inner soul and creativity. I’ve further discovered how important it is to truly savor time with my babies because their happiness and well-being are my life’s purpose. I’ve also come to understand the level to which travel and culture are important to me. Over the past five weeks or so, I’ve found myself hungrier than ever to get out and see the world again. In the meantime, I’ve found solace in rounding up some unpublished travel shots with you. We snapped these in Kyoto, Japan last year when I was four months prego with Sadie on our baby moon. Including some travel tips from our trip as well as links to one of my favorite outfits for traveling while prego below. I hope you enjoy!

BUMPDATE: 40 WEEKS

Hello, August 24, 2017! Phil and I have been dreaming of this day for what seems like forever because it’s our daughter’s official due date. Even though she’s not showing any new signs of coming out just yet, this still feels like such a special day and we’re so thankful to have made it here.  I’ve heard from so many other moms that first time moms usually go into labor late but I honestly can’t believe I’m still preggo!  We have our 40 week OB appointment today and I’m keeping my fingers crossed that we find out some good news.

METALLIC WEDGES + BLUE CASHMERE

Happy Monday! So thankful for a relatively restful weekend after so much travel for work. I finally feel like Phil and I are starting to check things off of our ever-growing baby to-do list and it feels amazing. We’ve signed up for a bunch of prenatal and childbirth classes over the next few weeks at LA’s The Pump Station and Cedars Sinai, we’ve officially created our registry and we’re slowly starting to pack for our move at the end of the month into our new home. 

HOW TO SPOT: THE COMFIEST PREGNANCY DRESS

Happy Monday from the east coast! I’m on the last big trip I’m allowed to take during my pregnancy before I can no longer fly and I’m enjoying every minute. It’s crazy to think that this will be my last time traveling before I’m a officially a mom and there’s something so special about that. I’ve enjoyed the freedom of being able to pick everything up and go at the drop of a hat throughout my career so far and I’m doing my best to mentally prepare myself for the next couple of years (and beyond!) of having more responsibility at home (and keeping a tiny human alive and healthy!).  As I write this, I’m looking around at moms throughout JFK airport who are juggling infants, giant mom bags and they look super stressed out. I can barely wrap my head around it all right now but of course I am excited for this next chapter.
