Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Here we are again at the end of yet another year. Every Christmas after this one will not be the same for us anymore... baby Alex will be present in our lives and from what other parents say, a baby can influence this wonderful celebration quite a bit. Experiencing Christmas through a kid's eyes can be refreshing and magical, it can make ourselves remember our own times when we were little and I am looking forward to that.

Michael and I are enjoying time with family in Knoxville and baby Alex seems to want to be part of it too because he moves constantly in my growing belly.  I'm starting my 32nd week on Christmas Day so in eight weeks or so, we will get to meet our precious baby.

We didn't mail out paper cards this year either so last night I sent  out an email to our friends wishing them a wonderful time during this holiday season. I will just copy the same wish here as I couldn't say it better than this:

"May the miracle of Christmas fill your heart with warmth and love. Christmas is the time of giving and sharing, it is the time of loving and forgiving. May you be inspired to make this world a better place.

We hope the New Year will bring you many opportunities that will help you turn your dreams into reality and all your efforts into great achievements."

Baby Shower


WOW... I am sitting down, resting with my feet up and still amazed of how wonderful this day has been for me! I had the most impressive baby shower ever!! I've been to a bunch, I have organized a few but the baby shower I witnessed today was absolutely THE best!!

A few of my closest girlfriends put together this incredible celebration for the baby Alex. Everything that was done was outstanding- decorations, ideas, food, cake and other delicious desserts, gifts... I am speechless of how out of this world everything was! I am truly blessed with the most amazing girlfriends and especially sister-in-law!  I am very much aware that half of this post is made out of superlatives but I can't help it... I just feel like the luckiest girl in the world right now!
