A Lot of Changes and Exciting News

{Shirt: GAP Borrowed from D - sim, Skirt: GAP Maternity (old) - sim, Hat: J.Crew Factory (old) - sim, Necklace: Banana Republic (old) - sim, Shoes, Watch - gift from D, Sunnies, Earrings - gift from D}

{On Yishai: Shirt: Nautica (gifted) - sim, Shorts: babyGap - sim, Shoes} has been waaaay too long since this little blog has been updated! Part of that was intentional (more in a sec...), but sometimes life has a way of getting all sorts of crazy at the exact same time, ya know?

So here goes:

As you can probably tell above, D and I are super excited to announce that we are expecting Baby #2! G-d willing, we will meet this one at the end of November :) We are thrilled beyond belief and I'm feeling good, thank G-d...just tired from chasing my very active little man around. Man oh man, is pregnancy different the second time around...I'll devote another post to that topic soon. (And for those wondering, we don't know the baby's gender... so you'll be as surprised as us!)

We MOVED! Yep, that's right... after four years we said a bittersweet goodbye to New Jersey and our wonderful community of friends (missing everyone terribly!), and made our way to Boca Raton, FL. So far we are loving it and have already begun to make friends and explore the area. So much fun stuff to do with a toddler (more on that later, too).

Also, remember that other 'exciting news' I alluded to here (also, holy moly, look at all.that.snow!)? Well we're finally ready to share: in less that 2 weeks, D will be starting Law School at Nova Southeastern in Fort Lauderdale, FL! I am so amazingly proud of my man and what he is willing to do for our family day in and day out. He's been wanting this for a while and it's NOW OR NEVER! It's gonna be a wild ride for the next four years (night school) and I truthfully don't really know what to expect so wish us luck.

As if all that stuff up there wasn't enough (are you dizzy yet?) and you've somehow managed to get this far in my crazy-worlds-been-turned-upside-down post...we now have a full-fledged walkin' talkin' toddler and he's just the cutest ever! So what if I'm's my mom-given right :) (For all of you wondering why Yishai has a ponytail, there is a Jewish custom not to cut a boy's hair until his 3rd birthday - read more here.) I'll do a more elaborate post on Yishai's current stats and cute anecdotes as well as pictures I'd previously promised (cake smash birthday photos are too cute for words - plus D did them himself so I have to humblebrag a bit :) )

Lastly (for now), I think that I'm gonna be taking this little bloggie in a bit of a wider direction from now on. I have really love documenting just my outfits and had peppered in a few baby posts/ DIY things along the way, but I think I'm ready to expand a bit. I'll still do plenty of outfit photos and I'm excited to document the last third of my pregnancy, but I've been DIYing up a storm and I'll begin to post more of those projects + decorating ideas as we start this new chapter of our life in a new home. You can also expect to see thoughts on pregnancy and motherhood plus more about our (growing!) family.

If there is something you are especially interested in seeing on the blog as I move forward with the changes or if you have other suggestions, let me know! I love hearing from my readers and I know that this blog would be nothing without y'all. Thanks so much for your support, it means so much to me!
