"We are above all things loved - that is the good news of the Gospel - and loved not just the way we turn up on Sundays in our best clothes and on our best behavior and with our best foot forward, but loved as we alone know ourselves to be, the weakest and shabbiest of who we are along with the strongest and gladdest." - Frederick Buechner

I just wanted to share this quote from someone I consider a kindred spirit.  I love his words and identify with him so much.  I want to know him...and feel like I do.  It is that whole communion of saints thing I get so excited about all the time.  Buechner is tops on the list of people I have connected with despite the fact that we have never met.  Search the blog and you'll find plenty more quotes from this remarkable man.  Enjoy and soak this one in first, though...and be encouraged.

Finally...A New Post!

{Insert copious apologies for not posting for more that 2 months.  Give excuses as to why this is: work, life, baby, etc.  Take it all back and just apologize for being a slacker.  There.  Done. Now the new post...}

Yes, I am a slacker.  It is true that have failed at keeping up the blog as-of-late.  And it is not for lack of things to discuss or share.  More for a lack of time to sit down and write about said things.  Yes, I have been extremely busy at work and in trying to get things ready for the arrival of our little guy.  Have you ever started a new job and found out you were expecting within the same week.  Yep.  That's me.  Yikes!  Needless to say, both have kept me busy and a little exhausted...and equally (if not more!) blessed.  I do have stuff to say...funny, serious, exciting.  I will get to that.  All two or three of you who have not completely given up on the blog...thank you.  Please stop by soon for more thoughts and updates.  I have got to do better.  Blogging is good for me. :) For now, just enjoy these pictures. 

The bedding...
The bump...

The bag...

(I totally want this.  How cute is it?!)
