Happy Thanksgiving!

This year I am most thankful... be home with my family.

...for my wonderfully supportive husband and everything he does to take care of me.

...that my brother-in-law is home celebrating with us, safe on U.S. soil.

...for my job.

...for my sister, whose heart and thoughtfulness never cease to amaze me.

...for my parents, who give so much of themselves and would do anything for us.

...for my health.

...for the strong, encouraging women who will surround me at my baby shower on Saturday.

...and for their generosity, love and support.

...and mostly, for this precious little girl growing inside of me. For the opportunity to be her mom. For the opportunity to watch my best friend become a daddy. For the way she has already changed our lives and for how they will continue to change and grow with her.

Happy Thanksgiving to you all!

Newport Wedding

At the end of October, my cousin got married in Newport, Rhode Island. I went to school in Rhode Island, and Newport is one of my favorite places, so I was excited to spend some time there with my family.

My cousin and his now wife had a sunset ceremony right on the pier, and it was absolutely beautiful, so now I'm just going to let the photos speak for themselves!

My sister's wicked cute shoes!

 My gorgeous sister!
 Hot apple cider in tiny little mugs that they passed
around right before the ceremony.

 Me, my hubby and our little girl :)

(Have I mentioned how much I love Lightroom?!)

This past month... computer has been out of commission.

...I started going through internet withdrawals.

...I had so much I wanted to blog about that I, of course, can't think of now. belly has been growing bigger and bigger.

...I essentially started living in maternity yoga pants and over-sized sweatshirts whenever possible.

...I spent some time with family in one of my favorite places for a wedding (photos to come!)

...I had maternity photos taken of me and my hubby by one of my favorite photographers.

...I've slowed down quite a bit and carrying around this belly has become exhausting.

...I've grown more and more in love with this precious little girl growing inside me, that is now only 9 weeks from arriving!
