This pregnancy has been fairly different from my first one
While in the first, I loved and welcomed every change, in this current one it took me 8 months
to love myself. After 8 months of feeling uncomfortable in my own skin, suddenly everything stopped spinning and I could see clearly how much beauty there is in my growing belly
I started recognizing what makes me feel good about myself, so this past month has been a treat
Hopefully these loving forgiving feelings will continue after my sweet baby girl will arrive

Tamed Wild Flowers

It's been a whole but for good reasons, of course.
1. I've been working on baking baby number 2 (another cute little girl)
2. My second year in the M.Des program has started, and juggling is key
    (as is the general life of a mother)
3. Work has been good
    I've been designing and working with wonderful women and I love it!
4. I had a week long exhibition of my "Tamed Wild Flowers" illustrations
    which you should check out on my FB page
    Hopefully soon they'll be available for purchase
5. Winter came with all it's might and children viruses, so it has been one hell of a ride
6. Started a new bi-weekly illustrated column in the awesome motherhood magazine

*A couple of other things have happened, which i might discuss later on.

And of course we cannot ignore some mother-daughter fashion looks.
For my opening night I wore- the most comfortable, cool, black COS dress, ASOS pregnancy faux-leather tights, ZARA beanie & beautiful hoop earrings (gift from my parents for my 31st birthday).
Baby Tamara (already a toddler) wore- white collar Carter's top, Gymboree knit cardigan, ZARA Kids cozy pants with could patches & GAP black booties.
All 'n' all we had a wonderful time. Tamara danced the whole time, and I was so proud to have her there, though she had no clue as to what it meant to me.

All dolled up

The Jewish holiday season has come to an end and here are some conclusions:
1. My daughter has nicer clothes than I do- a realisation I come to only after I get her dressed
    for the holiday dinners. But I feel as she is some kind of representation or extension of me,
    I'm pretty ok about it.
2. We went on some well-deserved vacation, and it was AWESOME!
    It brought the three of us closer together as a family.
3. There are no excuses left... The cost is clear, with no vacations or holidays ahead,
    now it's time to be proactive and take my tasks and projects list by storm.
4. Not enough time was spent with my friends this holiday season and that sucked.
5. I am an ignorant in all that's new in the music world, and I have to adopt new bands to listen to,
    recommendations are welcomed and needed.
