A personal post with some exciting news: my 21 week secret is finally out!

Charlie

Our wedding May 2011

How I have ummed and aahed about how to word this post, how to title it, how to share this exciting news with you.  So I’ll try to cut out the waffle and just tell you…

My husband Nick and I are expecting our first baby!  

This week I have reached 21 weeks and have a small bump (see below!) that hides a very active tiny person that regularly reminds me it’s there and growing.

Having run this business for 6 years now (happy birthday TNWC!) it has given me the opportunity to meet so many incredible people, both running wedding businesses, and brides- and grooms-to-be, and it is such a pleasure to be able to share this news with all of you lovely friends.

I’ve gone for the typical pregnancy hand pose to show you there’s actually something there!
My 21 week baby bump

If you have concerns that this is going to turn into The Natural Baby Company, please don’t worry, it won’t!  I am still very much in love with weddings and don’t intend on falling out of love with them any time soon.  I will be sharing snippets of our baby adventure over on my personal blog Eat The Earth if anyone would like to follow along or find out what’s going on.

It’s also been a delight to discover that some of my fellow TNWC businesses are also expecting babies, many of them their first babies too. I am so thrilled for them (a huge congratulations – you know who you are!) and think it’s wonderful that there’s a bundle of new little people about to be born into families of creative and entrepreneurial small businesses.

Hope you’re all having a wonderful week, and I’ll be back later on today with some more wedding inspiration and tomorrow we have another post from one of our TNWC Real Brides.
