it's about time...










I have been anxiously awaiting the arrival of October! I love this time of year.... the cooler weather, the changing leaves, the anticipation of the holidays and all good things to come! And this time of year is even more special to me than in years past. Our baby girl will be making her way into this world in December, and the holidays will help pass the time that much faster! Could there be a more perfect time to celebrate new life? I think not!
I have been feeling so grateful for all the blessings in my life lately. It's so easy to let the hard times get me down and hang on to those negative feelings but I'm choosing to focus on the positive because I am so blessed. I could not be more in love with my sweet husband! He's been my rock through our good and bad times and I'm so lucky to share these experiences with him. It just melts my heart to see how much he loves baby girl already, and how much more he appreciates me through our pregnancy journey! I am the luckiest!
We have a fun month ahead of us and I can't wait to share the fun times on my blog. I'm so thankful for all of our amazing friends and family who are going to make this month the best one yet! And I'm thankful for all of my sweet friends I've made in blog land! You all make life so much more exciting as I share our stories, the exciting and boring ones :) This post is kind of all over the place but I guess I just want to say that I couldn't be happier that October is here! And I'm so thankful for how good my life really is.

Hello October! (:

It sounds like your baby girl is already bringing lots of joy to your lives. Time IS going to fly and she'll be here before you know it. Happy October.

Even though it's Spring here in Peru, I feel like I am celebrating October with everyone else :) It's so fun to read all about it AND we are having our baby this month, so it's EXTRA special! We will be in the states by November and I can't wait to catch up on celebrating the Fall season!!

You're getting so close!
