I have some extremely exciting news to share with you! Tom and I are having a baby!!!
Pregnancy Announcement Photoshoot
We had so much fun with this pregnancy announcement photoshoot! The location is Del Mar Beach in San Diego, California. My mom, Deb Chitwood, of Living Montessori Now and Bits of Positivity took these special photos for us.
On August 3, Tom and I will celebrate our 8th wedding anniversary. We’ve always wanted to have a child. We began preparing to grow our family, starting with eating plant-based nutrition for the past year. We’ve been vegan (except honey), gluten-free, and sugar-free (Only dates or occasional honey, agave, or coconut sugar.) for over a year now. Of course, we also love working out together.
Also, since a few months prior to TTC (trying to conceive), I’ve been researching and using even more natural beauty products (makeup, skincare, and haircare) than I already was. Now my beauty routine is cleaner than ever before, and I will be sharing my favorite natural products in future blog posts.
We feel so blessed and grateful to God that I got pregnant the first month we started trying for a baby!

We had our first obstetrician appointment on Tuesday, July 25. We got to hear our baby’s heartbeat and see him or her on the ultrasound! It was absolutely amazing!
