We’re Having a Baby!

I cannot believe I am even writing this blogpost! We are expecting our first baby! We are feeling so excited, nervous and so incredibly thankful. I am just about 15 weeks now, and though the first trimester was pretty unpleasant, we made it to the second and I am feeling a lot more like myself….

Laundry Room Refresh

Hope everyone is finally enjoying spring! I am loving planting our front area with fresh flowers and all of the tulips and daffodils popping up is making me smile.

east coast

Our friends from the USA visited us recently! It was about a 2 week trip altogether, and we got so much accomplished! 2 weeks sounds long, but when you include traveling time and 3 different parts of the entire east coast involved, it goes by fast. We tried to fit in as much as possible…
