Hello, everyone! These past few weeks have been full to the brim; last-minute dates for SH and I, socializing with friends, and trying not to focus too much on when Miss Blueberry will appear. Her “official” due date is just days away, but she seems intent at this point on staying past and enjoying her last days of peace and quiet. lol. I go between moments of frenetic energy cleaning the house and trying to get things set up and prepped for the baby, and wanting nothing more than to lay on the sofa and nap (or watch season 1 episodes of my newest BBC drama addiction: Call the Midwife). Exciting times, I tell you! lol.
[ Random snapshots from my Instagram (username: elegantmusings) over the past few weeks. Look at that belly! ]
I am so excited spring is (finally!) officially here! Last winter was such an opposite of this: warmer than usual and far less dreary days. I do not do well with dreary, cold weather. We’ve had a few teaser days of unbelievably warm and sunny weather (in which I remember why living near the coastline is so fun!), and I can’t wait for it to truly warm up so we can start spending more time outside as a family (without me turning into an icicle!). Of course, today is characteristically cold and dreary. But I’ve been seeing early spring flowers popping up in front yards and the songbirds have been singing from morning until late in the evening, so my favorite season is truly just around the corner!
Lastly, I just wanted to let those know–who haven’t heard–that Google Reader will be shutting down as of July. I am really quite sad that my favorite feed reader is going away, since it’s the one I’ve used the longest and felt worked best for me with how I read blogs. It also seems to be the one that most of you, my dear readers, use as well. I went ahead and switched all my feeds over to Bloglovin’, so I don’t forget in the impending haze of new motherhood. But at least you have a few months to test out and decide on a new blog reader. There was a great comparison of three of the most popular readers on The Crafty Cupboard, for those still not sure which reader to make the switch to. Of course, if you’d like to follow Elegant Musings on Bloglovin’, you can find it here.
This will be my final post for the next month or so. I am really hoping Miss Blueberry comes sooner rather than later, and I have been ordered by SH to start taking it easy. hehe. While I will be on a short maternity break from blogging, I’ll be back by late April or the very start of May at the latest with new and exciting things! Thank you all so much for your encouragement and sweet words throughout this pregnancy; it’s been so fun to be able to share little peeks into it with you!
