An Adoption Update, Before I Hiatus

February 12, 2016

Before I go on my blogging break (beginning next week!), I wanted to give you all a little adoption update… …. we’re still waiting 😉 As I explained in this post, when you’re in the waiting period of the adoption process, there are no updates to give. (Other than how we’re doing while waiting – which, today, is really great.) Our Home Study has been completed for some time now and we’re just waiting to get a call from our agency,…

My Most Favorite Announcement. Like, Ever. (A Grateful Heart)

July 6, 2015

Well everybody just hold on tight today, mkay? This is not your typical Monday. (Well, not for us, at least.) We have waited until we felt it was the right time to share this news publicly and today is that day 🙂 Christian and I are thrilled to officially announce our news…  It feels amazing to share it with you all! (And yet kind of strange for me to write this right now and not have anyone physically in front…
