Lemon and honey are just what I want right now. I’m not sick, but I am feeling a bit off today. Honesty, I think I am just feeling blue today and tea sounded like a comfort. I wouldn’t say I have had pregnancy blues, but tomorrow I will be 31 weeks along and I am just feeling BIG. If you have ever been pregnant, I am sure you can relate 100%. As much as I love my baby bump (I truly do love being pregnant), I am ready to be running again, working out and slimming back down. Sometimes when I look in the mirror, or see a picture of myself, I instantly feel discouraged and think of how big I look. Side note: why do people think it is totally ok to comment on how big you are getting? No one really wants to hear, “Wow, you are getting really big”. I’m in the final stretch and while 9 weeks to go isn’t much, it feels like a ways to go still. My growing discomfort greatly plays into that. Plus, it is hard on my body when my 21-month son just wants to be held and carried around. I have a hard time refusing those sweet little hands reaching up at me with the words, “Up”, following close behind. 21 months happened so fast and I want to savor these last few weeks of just him, my baby, before we introduce a newborn. There are definitely times when I am overwhelmed at the thought of two babes, but mostly I am so excited to see our family growing! Well, my tea is now nearly done and it felt good to share some of that. This blog is mostly about my work as a potter, but the more you know about the person, the more you can relate to the work being created – that’s how I feel about artists at least. (Wow – I also just realized today is hump-day…coincidence?)
This mug and saucer will be on the blog later with several other mugs. Be looking for them on Etsy soon too! Have a great Wednesday everyone!
