A New Beginning

I’m bursting with…l-o-v-e, anticipation, creativity, and let’s be honest, a little anxiety too. I’m truly in shock. The most delightful shock. I never thought I could be SO happy and feel so…different. A week ago I met the love of my life, Margo Denise. She decided to surprise us on the first day of Spring! What are the odds, right?! It’s like she already knew she was a Wildflower.

As you can imagine the week has flown by. Half of it missing from my memory due to lack of sleep, half of it burned into my brain and heart so vividly I can hardly catch my breath when I think about it. I have never felt such joy from my head to my toes, truly. Every Mom out there that told me it’s a love like no other love? Ya, you were right (duh, mother knows best).

And like I said, I’ve also never felt so tired. But there’s this satisfaction to the exhaustion that I can’t get enough of. I’m taking care of MY BABY and it’s the best, most natural feeling I’ve ever had. It’s like a new kind of peace I never knew existed. Man, I’m still on cloud 9, can you tell?

But goodness, I couldn’t have gotten through the past 7 days alone. THAT’S FOR SURE. Mark, the husband, has been a total champion from labor and delivery, to diaper changing and laundry. Can you believe she’s gone through over 50 diapers already?! Can you also believe I’ve only changed like 3 of them?! He’s a keeper, I’ve always known it…but I’ve never felt so, SO thankful that he’s my teammate.

Speaking of teams, the girls at the office have surrounded us with so much love and support, I actually feel like I can (try to) turn off my work brain! And since Margo decided to arrive early, they had to pick up a bunch of slack for me last week AND I’M SO APPRECIATIVE. (Thank you Andrea, Ashton, Caitlin, Caroline, Connor, Erin, Kate, Lauren, Lynn, Mano, and Serge for everything!) Without them Wildflowers would be nothing but weeds!

And now, feeling more inspired than ever, I cannot wait to finish up Holiday and begin Spring. HOW DID I GET SO LUCKY? I have a brand new baby girl and I get to start my favorite season of all to design. All at the same time. Pinch me please! Unless this is all an elaborate, coma-induced dream, in that case I never, ever, ever wanna wake up.

So much more to share. SO much more to do. And so much more cuteness (sketches, sneaks, behind-the-scenes, photo shoots, and of course, Margo) coming your way I could explode!
