calling me home.

Happy October, friends! I am currently sitting here indulging in all of the fall treats as a coping mechanism for being 40 weeks + 1 day pregnant, with no baby to show for it just yet. HOWEVER, I do have to say that I’m so excited for this little nugget that she gets to have … Continue reading
