That Moment You Realize You Can….

Drink Green Tea
or Coffee (if that’s your caffeine of choice)
Sleep on your stomach
Return to your crazy workouts
Indulge in a drink or two
Eat sushi
Smoked salmon
Paint your own toes
Is a great feeling. My little one has arrived and now I can go back to doing all the things that were not possible or prohibited while pregnant. There are still a few restrictions on a few things but at least everything is an option 

Living in Columbia, South Carolina and using this blog as my space to share a little insight into my life in what I’m making on the sewing machine, knitting needles, crochet hooks, in the kitchen, and elsewhere.

    I am excited to be able to do those as well! I love sleeping on my stomach and I really miss it. I also miss eating my favorite homemade salmon sandwiches! I can’t wait to care for my baby and at the same time enjoy those things I used to enjoy before I was pregnant!
