monday wish list

some things i'm wishing for this bright sunny monday......
1. a lovely garden with a cute old wooden potting table
2. a green milk glass adjustable height pendant light

3. a porch swing on the inside of my house

4. a spa tub to soak in with an incredible view

5. to continue being myself and living my life with joy, strength, and a sense of awe, no matter what comes my way.



and to balance out the wishes, there's also gratitude to express.... to all the amazing friends, near & far, who are being so supportive and enthusiastic as i embark on a very human journey of unexpected motherhood. yesterday was my first mommy-to-be day, and it was pure joy from beginning to end. and of course i couldn't let a moment pass to appreciate my own amazing mama ~ i truly hope i can be half the inspiring woman that she is.

I wish you all the things on your list, too (especially the green milk galss light) but you don't have to worry about being an inspiring woman because you already ARE! So of course you will be an amazing mama!

Happy mother-to-be-ness!!! The Boy and I are so excited for you.

Congratulations!!!

I tried to find a way to use a fancy font, bold, and italics in comments, but it won't let me. Still, the sentiment requires a fancy font, bold, and italics.

I am so excited for you as you begin this amazing adventure. OH! I have so much to say and it is probably too personal for comments. So, congratulations will have to do. I will email the rest.

Happy, happy news! Lucky Lil' Peach!

Oh that is such thrilling news! Any excuse to shop the adorable baby boutiques in Paris (but that will have to wait until the July trip, as my luggage can't hold another ounce!). Can't wait to see you in San Fran and hear more about this amazing new journey on which you've embarked. xoxox

PS How fab about becoming a Mom. You will love it and he or she will dance so beautifully with your genes:)

studio wellspring said...

thanks so much, maryam! i've really been enjoying dancing while pregnant actually ~ so if nothing else, i'm sure the baby will have good rhythm. ;o)

studio wellspring said...

what a great perspective, karey! i do love surprises, especially when they're way bigger than i ever could've imagined.

Those things on your list are lovely. That first photograph, I can smell the earth looking at it.

You are going to be a Mom? Well, congratulations. It is the most amazing thing to happen to the human animal.

thanks calie ~ it's pretty wild & filled with new experiences layered upon still newer ones, but so far almost all of it has been filled with happiness {esp now that i'm well beyond the 1st trimester}. you wouldn't believe the tummy i've got now. ;o)

Chloe said...

studio wellspring said...
