A Surprise!

I've been meaning to write this post for months, quite literally. But then life sort of got in the way, namely revisions and more revisions and other random stuff, like doing real estate research and dealing with family drama and eating too many cookies. 

*Munches on more cookies* *Dreams about cookies*

So! I thought I'd reveal my little secret via photograph. Without further adieu...

Here I am back in May, getting my author photos taken by the lovely Rebekah Murray! As a quick aside, we did most of the shoot at Dumbarton Oaks in Washington, DC, which is just about the loveliest garden in the entire city. Once you step through the gates, you feel like you've been transported to an old estate in the English countryside. It's seriously one of my favorite places!

Okay, okay! Enough of my tangents. Here we are now in October, almost November....

Ahhhh, I have swallowed a watermelon!

Oh wait. That's just the baby who has taken residence in my stomach. Whew!

So yes! I'm pregnant! I'm about 26 weeks right now, which is about six months along. I'm due in early February, and Justin and I are super excited! And nervous too! And I'm getting huge!

Oh, we're also having a little girl. :)

We can't wait to meet her!
