Every year, on this week I have a post marking the yearly anniversary of Feather Factor. I can’t believe it has been four years since I started this site, and though I may sound like a broken record each year, thank you to every single person who comes here, visits, leaves a comment, writes an email, or takes time to share something from their own experience. It’s been an incredible privilege to be able to meet so many amazing people from around the world and I feel very fortunate.
Also, some sharp eyed readers caught a little note I included in my last post on the Four Seasons Tokyo, on needing a prenatal massage. I’m very happy to share with you all that we are expecting our first baby this year! I’m terrible at announcements like these and it’s actually been Mr. Feather whose had had all the sweet, nice ideas for how to share the news with family and friends. My method of choice has just been blurting out “I’m having a baby” sulkily between yawns. We do know the gender – it’s a boy – and I’m terrified! It’ll be two against one when voting for family vacation destinations.
We are due in late summer and I really have no idea what I’m doing. What I have done, is spend copious amounts of time looking for body pillows on Amazon. Also, I’ve issued myself a 5 item preggo exception for my 25 item wardrobe resolution for 2015. I’m going to try to get out of buying too many maternity items and just using what I have, but the Bellaband has been a miracle purchase so far. I’ll be tempted to use this contraption even when I’m no longer pregnant. Skinny jeans with no zipper/button constraints? Sounds good to me!
Thanks so much for your kind words so far, incredibly helpful advice, and I look forward to sharing updates throughout the year. And thank you all again for coming to visit my little space here!
