a secret revealed

IMG_6174

My friends I have been keeping a big secret over here (I have lots secrets more that will soon to be reveled) but the first is that I am pregnant about 5 months actually with a girl. And while I typically like to stay away from the "personal details" of my life and stick to just sharing creativity on my blog- this is something I just have to share because it will be difficult to hide pretty soon. This is a big deal for us mostly because until about 1 1/2 year ago we didn't think we wanted kids- don't get me wrong we love kids but just didn't think it was in the stars for us. In fact if you would have asked me if we were ever going to start a family my typical response was, "only if the clouds part and we are visited by an angel that tells us to". Well, it didn't quite happen this way but a series of life changing events in the last 5 years lead us both to wanting some big changes in our lives- the biggest was the sudden and new desire to start a little family and we knew we would try for 2011. So here I am totally knocked up- so far things have been pretty breezy- no morning sickness, feeling good, continuing to exercise it is just my brain that gets in the way every now and then. Overall we are so excited and little terrified all at once about this adventure- when you spend a good part of your life not thinking about pregnancy and kids there is a lot to catch up on!

Not much will change over here on my business end (or at least that anyone out there will know) things are moving rapidly forward with my creative business with some amazing new developments so there won't be lots of maternity leave or changing the way that I operate and this won't be turning into a baby blog but once in a while I will share a little peak or update about life on the pregnancy and family front.

Thanks for letting me share!

Congratulations!

I've been there too, never thought I'd want kids and then suddenly I wanted one of my own.
Though most people say kids are wonderful, I think it's a very hard work and I sometimes wish I had my quiet old life back, but I don't regret.

Your little girl will be so lucky to have such a talented mother :)

Dear Alisa, this is the first time i post a comment in your blog, I am following you years ago.

A baby it is the most wonderful miracle in life.

Yes, your life will change, but t will change to make u a woman fully satisfied.

At first it may frighten, but it's part of life, a baby will bring out the best in you, the best of your art, the best of your life, the best of your femininity, it's best for your family and then If I tought that you were a happy woman, you will be the happiest woman in the world, this will be multiplied by a million.

Believe me, the life of a being so small that you have brought, has your blood and your bones and skin of yours is a real gift of life.

God gave us something wonderful to us (womens), and that is motherhood.You have been touched by God and angels and now you have the responsibility and honor to build a beautiful life, full of passion!

God bless you and your husband and of course that beautiful baby too.

You state this will not change you...you have no idea how this will change you. I hope it does change your business practices and your entire life because you will be a better person for it. You will be more flexible, more loving, more understanding, more compassionate and more creative. Allow this little person to transform you into the person you are meant to be!

I just found your blog, which with over 4,000 followers I wonder how that is possible. :) your work is beautiful. Congrats on the little one. I have two girls so far, 3 and 5 months, they are a ton of work, but I wouldn't change a thing.
