The Biggest News Ever.

 Truly the biggest and best news to ever grace Gerald & Joan.

Truly the biggest and best news to ever grace Gerald & Joan.

This blog has documented many family photos and memories over the past two years. Funny enough, I started sharing family stories on the blog before I really considered that I was archiving our history for the next generation. Later this year, the next generation arrives.

We have prayed for this for almost two years. There were moments where I wondered if it would ever happen and why it hadn't happened yet. The truth is that God is in control, and we're just along for the ride.

Fun facts: God willing, our baby will share a birth month (due date is 9/7) with his or her great-grandmother Joan (her birthday was 9/10) and his or her Aunt Lauren (birthday is 9/24), whose own baby is due to arrive two months to the day before our baby. Our baby came into existence in our favorite month and the month of our marriage. We learned of baby's existence on January 4. After a rocky start to 2014, we couldn't have asked for a better start to 2015.

I've experienced the usual exhaustion and nausea over the past few weeks, which is why the blog posts have slowed down considerably since January. Once my energy returns, I'll share the projects I have been working on since the new year began. I also have lots of ideas for new wedding suites, and I plan to add some baby-related design items as well. 

Until then, thank you for your love and support, and please keep our family and our babies in your prayers.
