Carmen Weddings » the little blog home of : carmen weddings

I’ve been spending a little time going through organising my blog layout as things changed when I moved to my new website… and then recently came to realise that one of my favourite inspiration shoots was never blogged on here! Oh how could I forget this? A shoot planned from six thousand miles away AND […]

  • Lisa Baker - Carms,

    I’m so happy for you and Paul! It is such an amazing experience and so exciting when you get to see it for the first time on the ultrasound!

    I totally understand where you are coming from with regards turning down work and having to take things a little bit slower – it doesn’t come easy when you run your own business and are used to going full throttle – but it will be totally worth it and you’ve made such a success of your business so far that you will have no trouble picking up where you left off when you decide to!

    I’ll pass on any tips I get after having our little one in March!

    Congratulations again!

    LxJanuary 10, 2014 – 11:08 am

  • Carms - Thank you so much Lisa! It was very exciting and now we cannot wait until our 20 week scan 🙂

    It’s amazing to know when other planners understand how hard it is having to work a little slower and every time I feel more energetic, I try work at the same pace again because that’s all we know! Thanks for the reassurance – I really hope after bebe’s arrival, I can pick it back up from where I left it.

    I look forward to your tips and I’m so very excited for you right now! Not long to go and I wish you a very healthy pregnancy over the final few months.

    Lots of love xoxoJanuary 10, 2014 – 12:37 pm

  • LucyL - CONGRATS Carmen, what wonderful news!! I am sure life as a mummy will bring you so much joy that you shan’t miss work too much 🙂

    On the other hand, I look forward to more blog posts from you!

    Lucy xxJanuary 27, 2014 – 11:27 am

  • Carms - Thank you so much Lucy! It’s going to be a nice little challenge this year but all in all, it’s going to be good.

    Carms xxJanuary 29, 2014 – 8:08 am

  • Bernadette - How darn exciting, I’m so excited you’re starting your journey into parenting this blog post might be helpful

    Lots of love

    Berni xxFebruary 8, 2014 – 10:01 pm

  • Carms - Thanks so much Berni! And what a fantastic post you’ve shared – it was definitely worth a read and I will no doubt re-visit again. You’ve always inspired me with running a very successful planning business, the UKAWP and juggling life with 3 children so there’s definitely no better person to write the post!! xoxoFebruary 10, 2014 – 12:16 pm
