Eden Rose Jordan

The day before I went into labor. I felt amazing the whole pregnancy. 
But I didn't feel so amazing when the contractions started Saturday morning and
continued all through Sunday with Eden Rose Jordan born May 19th 2013 at 11:32pm.
She is punctual just as her mom though (being born on her due date and all)  :)

Its been 3 months since she arrived and I cant picture life without her.
I love being a mother and even though its been quite an adjustment
its still by far the best decision I have ever made in my life.

So what am I up to besides changing diapers and breastfeeding?
Well not much else so far.
I think we have finally landed into some sort of routine and Eden
has started to take longer naps during the day and I can get some 
other projects done now.

I am starting slow with my jewelry as I don't think I will be able
to spend any longer sessions in my studio. But I will start to photograph
a bunch of ceramic necklaces, rings and earrings that I finished before she was born
and aimed to list in my novaofsweden shop on etsy.

It will probably be a week or two before I get to it, to be honest.
I'm on baby time now. :)

Thank you for stopping by and have a fantastic day!

The journey

I haven't blogged as much as I thought I would. Actually I haven't blogged at all.

I found that I have been trying to be more present. In the now. When we were getting married I almost forgot to enjoy the path leading up to our special day. I was so busy focusing on the one day...

This time I want to make sure that I savor every precious moment of this journey.
I have had a very easy pregnancy so far. No morning sickness, not really any back pain. Haven't gained too much (probably cause I already had some extra kilos when we started) and I am still able to bike to and from work every morning! I am loving every moment.

We decided to not find out the sex. It will be a surprise. Can't believe I'm 7 and a half months now. I have a feeling time will fly and before we know it out little baby will be here with us.

The bump is starting to get really big and time for studio is harder and harder to find. I will be putting the shops on vacation at the end of march so give myself more time to rest and prepare.

Have a wonderful Saturday my friends
love ~ tess

A new life

In May it will have been a year since we left the US behind and set out to start a new life here in Sweden. Its been quite the journey. New home, new job, new city in a new country (for David at least). So somehow it feels really fitting that this May we will welcome a new life into our little family.

We are so thankful to start this new chapter in our life. I cherish every day I get to experience being pregnant. Its amazing. Everyday my tummy grows bigger. I can feel the little one doing acrobats inside and I can't help to wonder if it's a little girl or a little guy doing flips. We decided that we wanted to be surprised so we didn't find out the sex on the ultrasound.

I have to apologize for not keeping up with my blog. I just had to focus on more important things... but I hope I will be able to share the rest of this journey with all of you.

Have a wonderful day my friends!
