The Big Announcement Post

I’m sorry for being MIA for what seems like an eternity. Since my last post was about evacuating for hurricane Isaac I thought I should let you know that yes, we are still alive. We did not get blown away like it may have seemed.

We have been going through some major life changes and I tend to sort of retreat from the world during major life changes. Andrew and I got some very exciting and overwhelming news and I have been taking time to process it in my own head, with Andrew, and with close friends and family.

Sometimes I feel like the internet, with its countless uses and advantages can tempt me to surrender life’s sacred things to public spectacle. Maybe I have a tiny introvert living inside of me but I often just want personal things to be personal for a while before they are given over to the internet for opinion. I know it sounds odd coming from a person who LOVES to blog but I think everyone using the internet should wrestle with where to draw the line with sharing.*End soapbox*

I realized that I couldn’t keep our changes a secret forever nor did I want to. I just needed some time to soak it all in before telling the world (or the 5 or 6 of you who read this). So without further ado… sometime around April 28, 2013 Andrew and I will be receiving the most unexpected outpouring of God’s love, a baby.

We are thrilled, humbled, overwhelmed, and overjoyed. I really don’t have the words.

Otherwise, there is not really much to report on life in New Orleans the past few weeks. For me it has consisted of nausea, working, sitting on the couch, nausea, sleeping. 

Rinse and repeat. 

Andrew has been a super hero. I don’t know how he does it but somehow he has managed to wait on me hand and foot, work long hard hours, take care of the house, and maintain his school work. And by maintain I mean make all A’s. He’s one of those people who can do it all and it makes me so proud and a little jealous.

I’m hoping when this sickness business is over we can get back to some of the fun things we enjoy + baby projects. Until then, I’m trying to take it all in one day at a time… sometimes it still doesn’t seem real!
