Yesterday was one of the best days of my life.
I barely slept the night before, and was wide awake in the early morning
anxiously awaiting the moment when we could finally hop in the car, go to the hospital,
and find out the gender of our little one that has been
kicking and fluttering inside of me.

I had the same kind of nerves creep up when I found Joshua
kneeling down on one knee and popping that beautiful, life-changing question.

And that same feeling when I was on my father's arm, about to walk down a long aisle
in a beautiful church and vow forever to my now husband.

We've come a long way, shared so many joys, tears, and incredible memories...
and now, Joshua and I would love to announce to you that we are having a...









Coming August 5, 2012!
Perfectly healthy.
Adorable 10 fingers, 10 toes.
We are so blessed!
And thrilled!!
Thank you for your prayers & love!!!
