201706251295478974

14 week update here.

Half way!!! A lot has changed from week 14 to now. The biggest thing being I actually feel and look pregnant. Around week 19, I started feeling bigger and stretched out. I feel like my stomach had doubled in size overnight, too! Zarin took the photo above this morning and my mouth dropped at how huge my stomach looks! Lol! I’ve also had people at work take notice to the bump so there’s been a lot more belly rubbing going on. Everyday, though, I’m still in awe with the beautiful life that’s growing inside me and the changes my body is going through to help her grow. Pregnancy is a crazy beautiful thing, yall!

Traveling While Pregnant

Since I was very little, I’ve had a deep love for travel. I have my parents to thank for this love of mine. Both my mom and dad came to this country when they were just 17; my mom from Poland and my dad from Ecuador. My very first trip to Ecuador was at the young age of 6 months. Although, I obviously don’t remember that trip, I do remember the vast amount of trips we took throughout my childhood, both nationally and internationally. There’s something so magical about traveling to a new place, experiencing cultures different than your own, and seeing more and more of this beautiful world.

We are pregnant!!! It’s still so surreal to say. Finding out we were expecting a little Baby Sells was the most amazing moment in my life. Zarin and I have felt so completely blessed with the out-pour of love and support from our family and friends since we shared the news. I’m happy to share that as of 5.13.17, we are officially into our second trimester! I experienced so much during my first trimester and thought I would take some time to reflect back and share some of those experiences.  Not only with you, our closest family and friends, but anyone going through a pregnancy, trying, or have already gone through it. They say every pregnancy is different. And this being my first child, I learned so much in my first trimester. The first few weeks after we found out I was pregnant were kind of scary. I kept feeling like I needed to have my own personal pregnancy expert on hand to answer my gazillion questions and concerns. Overall, though, I’ve come to realize this is an absolutely blessed time for my family and to enjoy the journey. And that’s what we intend to do and bring you along the journey with us.

Christmas with the Sells’

It really is the most wonderful time of the year! And also the time of the year when my wonderful husband quests through our storage to pull out my many, many boxes of Christmas decor! This year my inspiration for our Christmas decor came from a single faux rose. Shopping with mom at Michael’s a few weeks ago, I found these large, beautiful grey roses. They were dusted with faux snow and absolutely gorgeous. I had to have them!
