First Comes Love, Then Comes Marriage, Then Comes…


September 12, 2011

We all know the school-age rhyme of what comes next, right? For those who may not, it goes a little something like this:
“The Baby in the Baby Carriage”
And if you’re sitting there wondering what is going on…this picture may provide some further insight to the situation:

Yes, friends, it’s true…I can finally proclaim the news: Jeff and I are EXPECTING A BABY!!! {Gosh that feels good to be able to say that publicly now} We are over the moon excited about our little “surprise” that God has blessed us with. Ecstatic for what’s to come, and let me be honest, it’s been extremely difficult keeping this secret for the past few months from everyone, only spilling the beans to close family and friends. Thanks everyone for your love and support–we really appreciate it. OXOX

So stay tuned…more fun to follow {and yes, all those crazy weekly posts we all love so much}. Only 27 weeks to go until our little peanut makes his or her debut.
