peace on earth: merry christmas

where to start? it has been such a long time from this space. i'm sure you've made presumptions... and you'd be right. pregnant!

i thought this pregnancy would be different, i thought i might be able to enjoy the ride, sadly for me, not the case. i seem to be one of the 'lucky' ones, where i suffer from this. the days are long and challenging, but we are taking things slowly and mindfully, trying to enjoy the small things. this christmas will be spent recycling all of last years decorations, whilst we aim for a simple and peaceful festive season. just the way we like it.

and because i am presently unable to display any inspiration, i'll leave you with some of the beautiful things i have found around the web...

these handmade santa sacks are just divine

love these crafty santa sticks, spreading the christmas cheer

how to make a crystal snowflake

following this beautiful pregnancy series

love this cute idea for the kids

purchased my christmas cards from here (first year ever i haven't made my own)

and... my all time favourite - cookies in a jar - a perfect gift

merry, merry christmas. 'til next year. jade x

  4. Goodness me, big congratulations! But that is dreadful about the severe morning sickness. It must feel like a living hell some days. Hope you some relief and rest and enjoy christmas. Kellie xx

  5. Congratulations! Eeek. Hyperemesis with a little one to take care of would be tough with a capital T. Make that capital OUGH as well.
    I hope it eases for you.

  6. Congratulations on your pregnancy, Jade. I'm sorry it's a such a tough road for you. It ain't all roses, that's for sure. Go gently.

Sorry to her about the sickness though...hope it gets better for you. Ruby must be getting to that age where she begins to have an understanding about Christmas...I know Emily is really excited!!
