“A whole new world….”

Well, I’ve given in.
After following a number of blogs, especially since I found I was pregnant a year ago, I’ve decided to start one of my own.  Mainly it will be a way for me to express myself: through pictures, stories, product reviews and a few good rants and raves!  I have NO CLUE what I’m doing, so bear with me.

For Starters:
I am Kelly, a 25 year old wife and mother.  I have a goofy (but wonderful) husband, Andrew, and we were blessed with a beautiful baby boy, Hudson, on August 25, 2011. Since then life has, well…. changed.

But before I get into it, I’ll give you a brief background of myself.  I grew up in Norfolk, Va. After I graduated high school I became a Gamecock at the University of South Carolina and graduated with a degree in Public Relations in 2007.

Andrew and I began dating in September 2005, and this was one of the many reasons I stayed in Columbia after graduation.

I worked for Vitaminwater in 2008, and towards the end of that year I began working for a brand new student apartment community.  The job and I grew together and I was eventually one of two property managers.  I loved my job.  No seriously…. I did.  I worked with a great group of people and had fun every day.  Of course there was always stress related to customer service but I still enjoyed myself.

Have you noticed I’ve been speaking of my job in past tense?  Well, that is because just three weeks ago I left the job I loved for a different, much more challenging, but also more rewarding one.  I’m going to be a stay-at-home-mom.  Now THAT’S a job!

How could you not love that sweet face?

In the time since I left my job I have been adjusting to being “at home” with a baby, and it’s given me time to think.  Most of my family and friends will probably agree when I describe myself as outgoing, sometimes loud, and full of life!  So all this “thinking” needs an outlet… and here it is!  I’m ready to share my thoughts and experiences.  Hope you’re ready!
