News Of Expansion

It has been a VERY long time since I posted photos that included myself here on NoH.  Add that to my posting less and you must feel like I am losing interest and love for the blog.

Well, it couldn’t be further from the truth.

Instead I have been working on something personal that has kind of prevented me from doing the same old same old….

Ready to find out what it is?



Okay.  No more suspense.  I am pregnant!

As you can imagine, Lukus and I are insanely excited.

And I have actually been keeping this secret for a while now.  As in baby is more than half way there… I am due in December!

SO, what does this mean for North On Harper?

Well, I am not really the mommy blogger type.  So please don’t expect me to start writing posts about the pros and cons of cloth diapering.  That is of course, unless we are talking about a designer runway show- then all bets are off.

I will however, make reference to the pregnancy and the eventual munchkin.  After all, this is what’s going on in my life and I do like to include elements of it here and there.

The plan is to still focus on fashion, but there may be more lifestyle posts (honestly, with my expanding belly I have felt somewhat style and fashion challenged!).

There you go!  Thanks for continuing on with me through this crazy time- and please if there is anything you want to see from NoH, please leave it in the comments below.

    I’m so happy for you, Alexis!!! Congratulations are your expansion–of the family, not the belly 😉 After becoming so fond of “Alexis the cosmopolitan” I can’t wait to meet “Alexis the Mama.” I’m sure you’ll be great. I hope you’re feeling well, with glorious glowing skin, hard nails and fast growing hair. haha Congrats!!
