Well, the day is here. Today was our due date for Patrick. We have taken the day off to be together. I just wanted to be with D and cry if I need to cry without worrying about work. As luck would have it the snow is coming down here so it's pretty much a perfect day to be home with your honey. We've been very slow moving this morning and he's just going to build a fire to warm us while we play a game or watch a movie.
I am happy to report that I have been doing much better than I expected I would be. I'm not going to lie, it hit me hard a few times this morning already and I've had a few good cries but ironically enough I am also feeling some relief in sight. I feel like tomorrow we can REALLY move on. I don't have to eye every pregnant belly I see and wonder if that's what mine would have looked like at that point.
We will always carry Patrick in our hearts but hopefully with less of the grief.
We have done something very special to honour his due date...we have started our first business together.
Late Sunday night we submitted our incorporation papers to Industry Canada and by 8:30 Monday morning we had our certificate of incorporation. We have asked them to date everything to today's date - which they have.
So something else has been born today...C'est La Vie Studio & Design Inc. We have been talking about starting this business for nearly a year now. I guess all that procrastinating paid off in the end and we were able to start on a very meaningful day.
We still have a very long way to go before the business is entirely up and running but for now, it's official.
Our main focus will be photography but we will also be doing "paper" design including invites and anything else that someone may need for a given event. In some cases we are even open to event design. The two of us did a lot of the planning for Tanya's baby shower last year and had a few people asking if it was professionally done so we think we can handle some event design as well. Like I say, we will be starting small...
I came up with the name C'est la Vie because I thought it reflected our primary focus of capturing life's moments.
With any luck we'll have some very special moments of our own to capture sometime in the near future...
Sending kisses to Patrick,
