breathe in, breathe out

So I've started to get a teensy-weensy bit stressed about this whole becoming a mom thing. Mainly I worry about how it's going to change relationships with my husband and friends and how the heck I'm supposed to keep her safe for the rest of her life. If I think too hard about that last one I start to panic, and I want to keep her inside of me--cozy and warm-- forever. As much as I want to meet her, there are definitely parts of the world that I never want her to meet.

In order to keep myself sane, I've done a little online retail therapy. Shallow? Perhaps. But a much better alternative to hyperventilation or a full-on meltdown, which I am not above. Any new moms want to share if they went through this, and how they dealt with these feelings?

In the meantime, here are the pretty things I've been "meditating" upon:

sofa from uo

shirt from anthropologie

camera bag from jo totes

And for baby girl:

tick tock! tick tock!

I can't believe it's only a month until the baby's due! I have a feeling I'm not going to make it to my due date, but I've always heard the final weeks of pregnancy seem drawn out, so I've tried to schedule lots of things to do in February. I'm taking an online photography class through Nicole's Classes and lots of childbirth classes. Plus I have a baby shower and tickets to Wicked to look forward to! I'm hoping these distract me from counting down the days and hours. I feel like a ticking time bomb.

Cole and I celebrated our two year anniversary on January 31st. We went to Roaring Fork and ordered a delicious meal. We came home, we cried at a video I made about our first two years together (we're kind of softies), and then Cole got food poisoning and was up all night. Poor guy.

Leaving Roaring Fork

Since I'm in this photo class, you're probably going to have to endure a lot of not-so-good pictures on here for a while. I'd appreciate any (constructive) criticism/words of encouragement you might have. Here's one of Cole. I think he's pretty handsome and since I didn't do an official anniversary post, I'll just declare to all of the World Wide Web right now that I love this man...a lot.
