Baby Connoisseur no. 2

2:08 PM 37 Comments

Last Thursday we welcomed our darling baby girl into the world. She came three weeks early but, thankfully, is the picture of health. I could not have asked for a better labor and delivery… everything went so fast. I found the second time around to be much, much easier.

We brought our little girl home from the hospital on Saturday and since then have been getting accustomed to our new life. Our oldest daughter is quite enamored with her little sister already and Gatsby, although suspicious at first, is now quite taken with the newest family member too.

Thank you for all of your lovely messages. I have read every single comment, email and tweet and appreciate them all.

I’m still on maternity leave from the blog and YouTube channel but have been working behind the scenes on some wonderful ideas for when I return. I’ve also received all of your requests and will do my best to honor those too!

Until next time…

Going on Maternity Leave

4:44 PM 17 Comments

Hello everyone… I hope you’re having a great week!

Things have been bubbling along wonderfully here. I’ve been busy working with the team at Simon & Schuster to prepare Lessons from Madame Chic for its re-release in the fall, which has tentatively been scheduled for November 6, 2012. We have been working on edits and have taken on a really wonderful illustrator. The book is going to be a work of art and I couldn’t be more thrilled.

In other news, this baby is coming any day now so I will be taking a brief maternity leave from The Daily Connoisseur. I look forward to returning to the blog and videos, newly inspired and with a whole new perspective on life…

If you have any requests for future posts or videos, please leave me a comment below. I already have some great things scheduled for when I return but your suggestions are always welcome. Also, I’ve been getting a really high volume of messages lately, so I apologize in advance if I am not able to respond to your query. I take note of them all and will do my best to address your requests.

If you are unable to see the video where I make my maternity leave announcement, click here, look in the sidebar of this blog, or visit my channel: www.youtube.com/TheDailyConnoisseur.

Please wish me luck! I will definitely update you when I’ve had the baby. To never miss an update, please subscribe to the blog, the YouTube channel and, to keep au courant with my daily adventures, follow me on Twitter @JL_Scott
