and baby makes three

You may have been wondering why you haven't seen any wedding-planning posts here since our engagement back in February. Well, that's because we have some other much more important planning going on in our lives now.

The big news is: I'm pregnant! Michael and I could not be more thrilled. See, we've both wanted a family for a very long time, but for many years, too many to really dwell on now, life just wasn't cooperating. We were each with the wrong people, or we were lonely, single and hoping and searching. Last year everything changed, and when we found each other and it finally felt right, we knew this was one thing we both wanted—and didn't want to wait any longer for.


Well, we were lucky. I can't believe how lucky. And now we're going to have a fun and busy summer of kitchen reno, moving my office upstairs, and tranforming my old office into a nursery. And of course planning for our litte bundle of joy. It's all got to be done by the end of September, at the latest! So just a few more months. I'm glad you all will be coming along for the ride with me. By the way, baby name suggestions welcome!

Congrats on the new addition!!! So exciting! For a girl, I love the name Emma or Milly (short for Amelia), and for a boy I love the names Jack and James.

Have fun picking out baby names!
