I won't lie, I became very upset with my body when it decided to develop a cold the day before my only winter wedding. How unfair is that? Seven months pregnant AND sick while shooting a full day wedding at the NAC?
But what could I do other than rest and sleep as much as possible before the big moment… Thankfully I'm married to someone who believes in me unconditionally; someone who told me over and over again that he knew somehow I'd manage to rock it out.
And as I sit here in my pjs at 7:35am on a Monday morning, typing away between nose-blows, I'm thrilled to report that just as Ryan said, I got through it. And it wasn't nearly as difficult as I thought it would be! Sure, there were moments where I had to sneak away from the group to cough up a lung and chug some electrolytes, but my body didn't slow me down from doing my best work.
The human body is pretty insane…
But let me back up a bit and talk about my week of rest & relaxation in preparation for this weekend.
It all started on Tuesday night when I taught myself how to crochet from a nice old lady's YouTube channel. I already knew how to knit, so it wasn't a stretch to figure out the patterns and get the hang of the hook. By the time I went to sleep, I knew how to do the basic stitches and chains, and I woke up Wednesday determined to start a little blanket for the nursery.
Let me paint a picture of Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday for you:
Very happy with the finished product -- but it makes me want to start something else right away because I enjoyed making it so much!
- I'm thankful that I was able to push through a big day yesterday
- I blew through two seasons of Gossip Girl like it was my job
- Now that the wedding is done, it's time to focus on the BABY SHOWER!!!
I have big plans to make this a glorious afternoon for 20 of my favourite ladies ever :) Rumour has it there will be a champagne bar, since it doesn't make any sense for the girls to go without a little bubbly just because I can't join them!
I picture this week to be a combination of decor prep, maybe another crochet project, and a bunch of photo editing from this weekend :)
Happy family day!!
