Ecstatic to Announce The Arrival of Our Daughter...

Monday, August 20, 2012



She's here, she's here! We are over the moon in love with this sweet little munchkin of ours!!!
The last week has been a complete, beautiful blur of wonderfullness! Everything from labor to staying at the hospital to our
first couple of days at home have been truly remarkable. Exhausting, but beautiful. And truly something I had no idea
would be THIS amazing.

I'm still debating whether or not I want to share my birth story, but I will tell you right now that labor was a wonderful
experience for me and I would do it again tomorrow to experience that rush at the end of seeing our daughter's face for the first time. There are NO WORDS.

Thank you to our wonderful blog family for all of your love & support during our pregnancy. It was so amazing to reach a milestone in my blogging journey (reaching 1K followers) on the day of Eden's birth! So cool! I cherish each of you and always appreciate your sweet comments and notes.

We continue to covet your prayers as we raise this beautiful little girl of ours.
Off to go snuggle our girl... :) xo

And as for the amazingness of parenthood; it's just incredible how fantastic it is. I'm pretty sure that you couldn't believe it even if someone really tried to explain it to you.
Enjoy every second of your gorgeous little lady. X
