I officially turned 35 this week! I spent this past weekend celebrating with family and enjoying a little staycation at the Grand Galvez. It’s been recently renovated and it is absolutely stunning! We loved our stay there. This year is the second birthday in a row I’ve been pregnant. It’s crazy to think I will be thirty five with two under two. I like to say I am in my Rihanna era because Rihanna is also thirty five, with both our previous babies born in May, and a second one on the way. She has been my inspiration for rocking my pregnancy since she preformed at the Super Bowl pregnant.
I honestly felt a little down on myself because I felt I was getting too old. Technically when you turn thirty five they say you are having a “Geriatric pregnancy”. But this pregnancy has me feeling stronger than ever. I am thankful for my body for being able to carry another baby. After having two miscarriages previously before Ella, a healthy baby is always a blessing. I definitely don’t take it for granted. So here I am at 35 pregnant with baby number three and enjoying every minute of it. Of course I had to dress up a bit to document this time. So here’s a little birthday photoshoot and some photos of this past weekend birthday celebration!
How amazing is this Chanel cake from Butter Baby Bakery. She did my baby shower cake too and it was absolutely stunning. My husband just told her a few of my favorite things and she knocked it out of the park. It was as delicious as it looks too! Honestly it was the best birthday I could ask for. My hubby always finds a way to spoil me on my day. I am so thankful I get to spend the rest of my birthdays with him by my side.
This year I am thankful for another year with my family, being a mom, a wife, and bringing another beautiful baby in this world. I couldn’t ask for a better way to spend my birthday.
