The past couple weeks have been filled with fun and family. We traveled to Erie, PA (our last trip pre-baby!) for a beautiful shower thrown by my Mom and sister. It was an amazingly beautiful, elegant, and classy event. I loved every minute of it! The best part was spending time with fantastic women in my life - many who I don't see often and live as far away as Pittsburgh, Baltimore, and even Florida! It was amazing to feel so loved and supported as motherhood is rapidly approaching!

The rest of our time at home was filled with visiting family, talking long walks in the woods, bonfires (with marshmallows, of course), kayaking and enjoying the beautiful Erie beach.

Ben and I both had an especially hard time leaving the peaceful sanctuary of family time. But it is good to be back in Tucson and crossing off those final pre-baby to do's. It's also exciting to know the next time we are in PA there will be 3 of us!

We are missing you. Home just isn't the same when we are not all here (some might say I'm not all here most of the time).
