Yes!
We’re pregnant! 
I still can’t believe it!
I’m gonna be a mom of 2 human beings and We’re gonna be a family of 4!!!!   

Anxious mess is what i would describe myself as since finding out!!   
That last picture, perfectly describes how we’ve all been feeling about this.

How did we find out? 
Ha! This is a funny story!   I was sure there was something wrong with my thyroid cause my hormones had been acting out of whack! For the past couple of months, I’ve been breaking out like crazy, my hair has been super brittle and thin, and it’s been hard to shed weight. All those symptoms have been more prominent recently. I don’t think it helps that I always borderline on the side of anemia.  So I went to the doctor to get my thyroid checked and got blood work done!   

The doctor said they’d call me the next day with my results.   

That night, i had a nagging feeling to take a pregnancy test! So i did!
The pregnancy test had a very bold line and a VERY faint 2nd line. I couldn’t tell if i was just seeing a shadow of where a 2nd line would be. So i took another one. And another one. And another one. I think i took like 5 that night. And i made Chris take one for comparison.
Chris’s only had one line and no shadow. Thank goodness 😅😉.
But all of mine had a SUPER FAINT 2nd line.    

I started panicking. I literally felt my sugar drop and i had to sit. And i just kept saying:
“Oh my god, oh my god, oh my god...”
meanwhile Chris was just giggling with excitement!
We basically swapped places from the first time we found out we were pregnant.    

So after Chris eased my anxiety. We went to sleep. Correction; he went to sleep!   

A part of me was excited of the possibility. And the other half was just panicked. I wasn’t mad at any point. We’re adults, and we‘re very aware of the consequences to our actions. Plus, I kinda knew there was a huge possibility of this happening since we had been making up for lost time from Chris’s trip to Berlin.
More about that here; Part One and Part Two.     

So. I wasn’t mad. But had it been up to me, I would have wanted to wait maybe one more year, and i have a list of reasons why a one-year minimum sounded good. But then again, there’s never a perfect time to bring a child into the world. 🤷🏼‍♀️.    

The next morning, I woke up to a call from a nurse. She said;
“Kat, you’re blood work came back just fine... but... congratulations you ARE pregnant!”    

Holy moly. Let that sink in. I’m pregnant.

Hello Everybody!
Yes, you read the tittle correctly! I'm saying goodbye to my blog!
I thought it would be fitting to use the photoshoot I opened my blog with!

This post has been a long time coming.
And I hope my following statement makes sense.
To be honest, I’ve re-written this blogpost so many times.

It’s no secret that I haven’t been as consistent (understatement) with blog posts for the past….. year?!
I've been blogging for 5 years now!
Back when I started blogging, I had a 5 year-blogging plan. Yup, I'm that kind of person.
Somewhere around year 3, I started loosing the passion of it all. But none the less, I still had one foot in while one foot out! I had made so many friends and connections along the way, that I decided to stick it out.  I told myself that if my blog did not go anywhere incredible in 5 years... I'd start a new journey. 

Hello Year 5!

I think overtime interests, hobbies, and likes change. Nothing out of the ordinary.
I think that after becoming a mom, my passion and focus has changed drastically. For a while, I thought that I wouldn’t give up blogging unless I had this Amazing plan figured out and an amazing thing to jump into next. But overtime, it made me resent my blog and all the time and effort that goes into making a single post at a time. I started hating shoot days, specially when I had to drag my husband or baby into it. And the busier we got, the last thing I wanted to do is use our free time, to hustle through something I wasn’t even sure WHY or for WHAT I was doing it.

On that note,
Over the past 5 years, the blogging industry has done a lot of changing too. In my opinion, most of the changes have not been so hot. Not to mention that this industry is super political. It got to a point where I felt like I was running a rat-race.    Yuk.


While I would not trade all the friends, fun, experience, and connections, that blogging has brought me,
I confidently feel that it’s time to move on.
This could be temporary or it could be permanent. Only time will tell. But for the mean time, I want to close this chapter and see what else can fuel my passion.
While I don't plan on getting rid of my brand name ever, my domain will likely remain up but probably remain idle. 

THANK YOU & GOODBYE

Thank you to EVERYONE, even if it's just 20 of you (I don't know how many people still read blogs anymore). But everyone who has supported me, my blog, and my crazy ideas! It has seriously meant the world to me and has given me the confidence to go on to a new journey! You guys are the best and I'd love to encourage you back and tell you to go be your own cheerleaders as well and start doing that thing you've always wanted to do, whatever it may be!!!

Love you all,
Kat
