Sugar and spice and everything nice…

Hi friends! Yesterday, I found out we are having a baby girl! I couldn’t believe it! I had secretly wanted another girl (mostly because that is what I am used) but I refused to set my heart on either idea in an attempt to remain neutral. But…I have to admit, tears of joy streamed down my face when they announced it was a girl. Grace was so excited too – we stole her away from school today so she could witness the ultrasound. She kept telling me it was going to be girl! I grew up always wanting a sister, so I am over the moon that Grace will get to have one.

My mind is already designing the girly nursery!! Such fun!

  10. la tua casa virtuale è un incanto.
    Your virtual home is like a spell, a place where i find a world of peace and “the good things” who lives in the world. I don’t know if my words is correct. You remind me like a french garden.
    All beautiful things for you and family.
    From Italy big hug
