i have a legitimately solid reason for being slow on the posts this week, and that reason is this. yes! we are expecting a little boy in May next year. one thing no one tells you (or maybe they did, but i didn’t listen) is how very long the wait feels after you see that first positive pregnancy test. all the tests and the scans and just hoping that everything will be okay. we know we are very lucky – and we are so thrilled, excited and nervous at the prospect of welcoming him.

business as usual from next week. till then, a distraction.
