Life goes by fast. Especially when you have a little one. 
There is hardly any time to reflect. Blogging kind of fell off my list of things to do. 
She is almost 10 months now. She can pull herself up and stand. No walking yet. Thank god.
She keeps me plenty busy as it is...

I put the jewelry business aside for right now. 
There just never felt like a good time to go to the studio.
Dont get me wrong, I do miss it and I plan on getting back to it. 
It is just that this time will never come back and I dont want to miss a second of it. 
I am having way too much fun!

And I dyed my hair red. And I love it!
Hope you all are having fun. Wherever you are and no matter what you are doing.
Just enjoy it!

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
