I am 19 weeks pregnant today! We just announced our pregnancy on Facebook yesterday, and we had an overwhelmingly positive response despite the political implications (Pro-Life vs Pro-Choice) and controversy surrounding the way we announced it. We also posted the announcement on our health conspiracy blog, which is an appropriate platform for the message we are trying to get out. Scroll below to see the rest of the photos!

I wear leggings a lot while at home, because this is where I do most of my stretches and relaxation.

Local Model Spotlight: Baltimore’s Kelly Borowiak

I had the pleasure of modelling alongside the beautiful Baltimore based model Kelly Borowiak while at the second Boulevard of Chic fashion show. She definitely stood out, standing at 5’9″ with the proportions of a tried and true fashion model. While there, Kelly and I were able to chat for a bit in between wardrobe changes. I expressed how models used to be just like walking mannequins before the Internet started. The majority of people didn’t really know models’ names unless they were globally or nationally renowned.
