Blessed

Okay, so I know I said that my next template would probably include apples or pumpkins...but I really think this new look more perfectly reflects the current season of our lives.

Wouldn't you agree? :)


I realize that we are still very much at the beginning of this journey, be we are just so thrilled to have been blessed once again! I'm resting often, taking vitamins every morning, and praising God for the gift of this new life! But after suffering such a painful loss back in May, we'd really appreciate any extra prayers you might offer for the health and safety of our new little one. And I know that you, my friends, are among the best prayer warriors I could ever hope to find!

CONGRATULATIONS! Lots of prayers going up for you guys and your littlest one. I know well the anxiety after miscarriage. May this little one spend 9 healthy months in your womb and may God give you the great honor of meeting him or her this side of Heaven!

LOVE the new template too :) Have a great week! Can't wait to read all about it!

I am sitting at my computer crying right now! Huge tears of joy, excitement, and remembering the days of post-miscarriage pregnancies.

I am SO thrilled for you and your family.
I will pray and pray my friend.

Lots of love to you!

YIPPEE!!!! Congratulations dear friend! I couldn't be happier for all of you. It is a blessing to watch your precious family grow.

I wish I'd seen this earlier in the day (hit the ground running, I did), but I am no less excited.

I had been thinking last week when you would be posting that you were pregnant. I didn't know you were, but I guess it was a secret hope.

I am so thrilled. Prayers are on the way. St. Gianna is my favorite! I know she will listen.

I love you bunches! Blessings!
