This morning, I have just been overwhelmed with all that I have been blessed with.  Spending time with God, my little girl kicking me, my hard working husband, my Christmas tree, running, being a vegan and making such amazing things :) and a wonderful family that loves me, despite of my flaws.  It's this time of year that is so often overlooked because it's over in a blink of an eye.  I must say that I am seeing it differently this year, in a new light of gratitude. 
Today has been very productive so far and yet it's not the usual "Lindsay" productive of blowing through my to do list just to get it all done.  I've actually been enjoying the process, it's very refreshing and the slower pace is not nearly as terrifying as I once thought.
Just wanted to share some of from my day so far...

After my nice relaxing run and yoga DVD I made some vegan blackberry oat bars...

I made them with all fruit jam, so no high fructose corn syrup...and no it's NOT just sugar!  They have a chia egg, which I am falling in love with because they are so easy to make!  (1TBSP Chia + 3 TBSP Water, and let sit for 15 minutes)  They have sesame seeds on top for a little extra nutty flavor...look and smell DELISH!

I did some laundry and dishes and got ready, then I had a little photo session, since people have been asking for pictures...
Just the belly...

I look a little stoned in this one, but you get the full effect :)

Side view

So there she is...getting bigger and I think more cramped every day, last night I actually SAW her moving around from the outside!  I remember my sister-in-law, Jess, telling me when she saw Judah moving around in there....she was right, totally crazy and amazing!

And the view from my computer is pretty nice too...
Merry Christmas!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


  1. Thank you so much for posting! So nice to see your house, your stoned face (jk, you dont look stoned) and little Lola! Enjoy feeling her move--even though Judah's here, I miss feeling him kick me from the's a strange thing and maybe I'm still just a little emotional, but it's just...indescribable. Soon enough though you'll be totally in love, in a different way, strapping her on you in your sling or wrap :)haha Can't wait!

  2. You look wonderful, Linds! Merry Christmas!!
