I wanted to ramble on and on about the day, the experience and the feelings that come with welcoming your firstborn into this world (and I probably will, at some point in the future). Instead, I’m going to introduce my Baby Boy with just this: I’m thrilled and incredibly blessed to welcome
1. Medium rare steak
3. Fois Gras
4. Brie cheese
6. Sushi of ALL kinds
8. Champagne and Caviar
9. Eggs with runny yolks
10. Burger (medium) with Blue cheese

I really feel like this week is a preview of what’s to come. I’m feeling the increasing discomfort that comes with a growing belly. Never before have I experienced a pubic bone ache. I’m told this is the hormone relaxin at work, which is a good sign. I […]
Sometimes, love is truly in the air and sometimes, you find it in the most unlikely of places. This time, I found love in the flower beds.
