A Very Special Announcement

I have some exciting news to share, friends...


You know how I just love books, right?



Well, I am delighted to announce that this year my husband and I will be adding a whole new collection to our home library... ( ;


We're having a baby!


I'm finally out of the first trimester (goodbye morning sickness!), and our little one is due to join the family this August. Baby Francesca is so excited to meet her new cousin and BFF!


Of course, my mom is thrilled to be a grandma again. I prepared a sweet little surprise for her when I came back for Christmas.


We should know the sex in a couple of weeks, so stay tuned for the big reveal...

Exciting news about the baby, and Francesca is a cutie. If its a girl are you going to call her Rose? That would be a great name, I like flower names and your blog name reminded me of Rose.
