Guest Post: November the 5th

For the first time ever, I’m posting something I haven’t written myself!  A friend of mine recently saw to completion one of the most heartbreakingly joyful years of her life… and when I read what she wrote about it, I knew it… Read More

48 hours from right now I should be holding a baby!  CRAZY!!! And thus ends what will probably be my shortest post ever. 🙂
