I have 2 confessions to make...
1) CONFESSION 1:
I'm not quite sure how this blog will change once this baby is born. Or even IF it will change!
You see...Marionberry Style has always been about style + fashion + beauty for the everyday busy woman. That will NOT change as it is my passion.
But I do imagine that as I take this jump into the next phase of my life, a few of my posts will be more lifestyle + home focused. Heck...I may even have a few posts on baby-related topics.
So I wanted to write to tell you that it is okay if this totally turns you off. I understand. I hope that you'll continue to check back for the style and fashion topics that I love to write about...but I get it if many of you want to stay clear of the "other stuff" I may post on.
2) CONFESSION 2:
I have never been a "baby person."
You may be asking yourself, "What the heck is a baby person?"
So I'll tell you. A "baby person" is a human being that flocks to babies like a Kardashian flocks to publicity. They are just naturally gifted with this adoration and obsession with babies. And guess what? Babies love them too!
Me? Well...show me a photo of your dog and I'll turn to mush. But a baby? They intimidate me. I look at them with one part fascination and one part terror. I never want to hold them because they use their baby-sense (similar to spidy-sense) to know that I'm frightened so they always decide to cry. Then I'm THAT girl who makes babies cry. Awesome.
3) RESOLUTION REGARDING CONFESSION #2:
I tear up just thinking that in a few days I will be a mom (just even typing the word "Mom" makes me take a deep breath). I just never thought I would be blessed like this. It's a long story and maybe I'll share it sometime...but this really is a dream come true.
- So am I
- But do I embrace the idea that I can learn to be one of those "baby persons" whom I admire so much? YesYesYes!
And I here is where I tell you "thank you." So many of you have given me such great advice and encouragement over the past several months. Blogging has been such a gift to me personally over the past year. I hope you'll stick with me through lil' man's arrival and maybe even pretend to be interested when I share a photo or two of him :)
