I thought the The Paris Seamstress was a well written, easy to read book. It takes place at the beginning of France's invasion during WWII and follows a protagonist as she flees to New York and starts her own fashion label.

Maternity Pictures: What to Wear
We finally pulled the trigger on maternity pictures and I just LOVE how they turned out. We didn't do them when I was pregnant with Palmer and I slightly regret it because I think it's such a special stage in life, one that I know I'll look back on fondly so I knew I wanted to do them eventually but, if I'm being honest, I had so much on my plate I thought, I'll just do them next time. Then I realized, I don't know what the future holds. We may decide we're done after two, we may not be able to conceive again, the list goes on and so I made it a priority.
