On Life Lately {Baby Wright}

In case you missed the little announcement here, I’M HAVING A BABY IN JANUARY! Brig and I are positively beaming with excitement and happiness. We absolutely cannot wait to be parents. Getting pregnant was a longer and more difficult journey than either of us anticipated, and so to be telling all of you that we have a baby on the way is just totally surreal. I truly cannot wait to be a mom – I have wanted that with every fiber of my being since I was a little girl.

There’s so much to tell you and I don’t even know where to begin – I suppose that mostly things will spill out over time, and I’ll share the funny and quirky details of pregnancy and life as we go. I’ve been doing a whole lot of NOT cooking at all these past couple months due to morning sickness (spoiler alert: it’s not just in the morning), which has been really difficult. I have been feeling a bit better as of late, thankfully, and am hoping that as I ease into the second trimester I’ll be able to start putting out regular content again. I have missed food and cooking so very much. 

My go-to foods for the past few months have been eggs, cold cereal, various sorts of crackers (I can handle one kind of cracker for about 1-2 weeks, then I have to switch – right now I’m on Triscuits, haha!), and bread. So carbs, really. The funniest thing about food for me this pregnancy is that I much prefer savory over sweet – which, if you know me (or if you’ve taken even the quickest glance at the recipes on this site) is quite hilarious! I’ve always been such a sweets person. Eating in general has been difficult, and that’s definitely a new experience for me, as well! My husband is always reminding me to eat and holding me accountable to finishing my dinner. He’s keeping me on track 😉

But through it all, I really have been so fortunate in my health and am just again so so grateful we have this chance to be parents. I know I’ll sound like a broken record over these next several months saying how thankful I am, but we know so many couples who cannot have children or who are still trying and though I only know a small glimpse of that pain, I am mindful that we are so very lucky to be pregnant, and I never ever want to take it for granted. Every day I find myself more grateful for a generous God who is so mindful of our needs.

I’m still working as a chocolate maker at the chocolate shop and loving every second. Having an always-on-my-feet job + being pregnant gets overwhelmingly tiring at times, but I’m so grateful that I’m feeling as well as I am so that I can still work every day. I am learning so much and seriously – how cool is it that I have a job making chocolate?! So cool. I still can’t believe my luck 🙂

I have so missed you, my dear friends and readers. I have received many messages, texts, and emails over the past couple months asking where I’ve been and I apologize for being absent with no good explanation before now. I promise, I will be back in full swing as soon as I can!!

Love you guys always.

xoxo, Lucia
