I realize it has been some time since I posted and I wanted to offer a slight explanation.
My husband and I made a compromise regarding blogging and the negativity that penetrates our lives at seemingly every turn...
I haven't just made myself "invitation only" here and excluded specific people. I've essentially "closed" the blog--meaning it's become only readable to me. (obviously not now)
If you'd like more info about continuing to follow our story, please email me: firstname.lastname@example.org. There's some 1st birthday stuff happening!!! :) Lily's gonna be one in less than 2 weeks!!!! Ack!
