Finally, Motherhood

In July, Dave and I welcomed our daughter Phoebe into the world. We are so delighted to have her here with us, and we feel incredibly blessed. As many of you know, being able to have a child was a challenge for us. Needless to say, Phoebe was worth the wait.

We recently traveled to Manchester to visit my mother and spent some time walking around Equinox Pond with Phoebe. The pond is one of my favorite places on Earth. When I carried Phoebe in her new Baby Bjorn around the water’s edge, I whispered to her how much this place means to me.

Someday I hope she loves it as much as I do.

    As a new parent, I keep hearing the phrase “Long days, short years.” Sounds about right! Thanks again for all of your kind words.
