She’s here! 
Clementine Ivey

8 lb 1 oz, 21”

And just like I imagined, her story is sweet and dramatic. 
She was polite and made sure her brother and sister were dropped off at school before the heavy contractions started. We headed straight for the hospital and we were almost turned away because I hadn’t progressed enough to be admitted. I warned that my last baby had come an hour and a half after we got to the hospital, but I was reminded my body might have reset itself in the seven years that had passed. In the end I was being wheeled as fast as they could push me from maternity triage to the delivery room with nurses shouting, “Call the doctor!” Adam and my mom stood on either side of me letting me squeeze their hands so hard I’m surprised I didn’t break them. Our doctor swooped in just in time to deliver her. 
And then there she was with brown hair and big, dark eyes. Ten fingers and ten toes. A bruise on her nose that looked like a blueberry (so very fitting because that is what we have called her since she was the size of one). Adam and I were mesmerized by her. We fell in love with this gift. 
She is perfect. 
She is a blessing that I never imagined. 
She is a little rainbow of love and a reminder that endings can bring beginnings.
I stepped into the Temecula, CA Trader Joe's today for some of their fresh, beautiful winter wreaths and found my card on the shelves! So fun!

I love seeing all the people taking advantage of the sale going on in the shop. Thank you so much for shopping small for Christmas. All of us creators appreciate it so much!

I have a new @traderjoes card from @designhousegreetings out! This is a sympathy card, and while I hope you never have to use it, they are nice to have on hand. I've seen what's out there and options are limited...as a receiver of many, I love that it says: "Sending you comfort and wishing you peace during this very sad time." ♥️thank you @paintedplanetlicensing !
Hooray for new prints! New sisters, floral, and mother art prints are now available! 🌸 link in profile 🌸

It was time to share this with you. (Link in profile)

All of you have been so good to me--words will never suffice for the many ways you have filled my life with light. It took me six months to write this blog post, but in it is my heart and soul. This is about loss, grief, and rebirth. 
I love you all.
