First Post...Eek!

Hi, I'm Lou and Welcome to my First Post in my All-New Blog! How exciting!?
I've been wanting to start one of these for AGES, but haven't really found the time until now.
Now, at 25 weeks pregnant, getting ready for a bouncing baby boy and just loving life, watching my belly expand day-to-day, and trying to make my home a haven. With so much happening, this is the start of many Firsts here on Mummy Lou's Leafs. 

But let me first tell you a little about myself...

I'm currently just 19 years old; married; pregnant: RARE. But I wouldn't want to be anywhere else in the world.
I sing, I play the piano, and I dance in the kitchen with my husband. I try to be a good cook, my cleaning skills sometimes lack - but whose don't? I love flowers and cumulonimbus clouds (gosh, am I a hippy??), good art and great music. I love to be crafty, but I'm not very good at it, and I love to serve others.

If you want a better profile of me, my life, and how I spend my time (from blogging), you can check this out. My religion is a big part of my life, and as you read my blog, I'm sure it will come up quite often. It's a part of who I am.

I'm going to start my blog with a couple of "regular posts", so that I get used to blogging regularly, and hopefully it will uplift and inspire some of you out there.

So, on Friday's, I'm going to do "One for the Weekend..." which will just be something that I'll ponder and try to apply over each weekend.

And seeing as it's Friday today here's my
One for the Weekend...




As I'm sure most of you know, it's Mothering Sunday this coming Sunday, and my husband and I are able to go and visit my Mum this Sunday. It will be the first time in a while that all of my immediate family, along with their spouses and children, will all be together, and I am so excited. My family have done so much for me, and sometimes I feel as though I don't thank them enough. So here's my "One" for this weekend, to ponder and try and improve upon; Gratitude. Saying "Thank You" for even the smallest of things, and expressing it in the right way. This can be so hard for me sometimes, but I'm really trying to work on it, especially in this beautiful season of Spring - where there are flowers and cumulonimbus' galore! People are generally happier with gratitude in their hearts, and with so many pregnancy hormones flying around and going to my parents' this weekend, I feel it might help to level out the monster in me! 


I hope it gives you something to think about over this weekend, as maybe you too go and visit, or call, or remember your Mum, or whether you just enjoy being a Mummy or Mummy-to-be yourself!

Yours Truly!
