Spiritual Enlightenment

I have been raised by a mother that is beyond talented, if you can think it, she can do it. She has creativity running through her vains at all moments. And being her daughter, I find that my days are consumed with wanting to create. I feel better when I go to bed knowing that I have made something beautiful for the day. I love flower arranging, cooking, sketching, and decorating. Working in the field that I do, I felt that my need to create was being fulfilled.....but I was wrong.

The day Austin and I found out that we had created a baby and that we were going to get to experience being a mom and a dad was overwhelming. I was overcome with a feeling of spiritual enlightenment, it was an ah ha moment, knowing that this was my calling in life. I felt that this was my moment to really be fulfilled in life, that nothing else in the world mattered as long as I could create a child and leave the world a better place.

Hey Chelsi!!! Your blog is super cute, I love all of your posts. Congrats on having a boy, that is so exciting! We definitely need to get together soon and all hang out, I love you guys. Anyway, we will not be moving far, we really want to stay right in that area. Who knows though, our townhouse might not even sell so we will see happens. Hopefully we will see you guys soon. :-)
