A New Adventure

There has been a lot going on around here.
If you're a regular reader, you might have noticed a few things...
1) I haven't posted a new recipe since February.
2) I have, however, frequently posted regarding being exhausted and/or generally scramble-brained.
and 3) I haven't been chatting about wine nearly as much as usual :).

Why this sudden change of tone?
My friends, we're adding a new baby to the bunch!

If the double pink lines weren't enough to assure me that this is real, the last couple months of intense, all-day "morning" sickness have certainly driven home the point!  I've definitely been just kind of scraping by, but the excitement and exhilaration of growing our family has made it bearable. I'm slowly starting to feel back to normal as I hit the fourteen week mark this week.

Now that we're entering the second trimester, I'm hopeful that my energy and appetite will be restored, and that my recipe section will come back to life!  In the meantime, thank you for all of your support, and your patience around the sporadic posts and extra kvetching in the last couple of months.

This has been such a wild ride already and a much different experience than the first go 'round.  I'm excited to blog about pregnancy a bit, something I didn't do before because SMJ was born just after Little J, and looking forward to sharing a little about the goings on of the last few months as well.  I'm thinking about posting a full review of the frozen pizza section at Whole Foods, as for awhile that and cereal were about all that sounded good to me :).

In the meantime, I'm just wrapping my head around the fact that this is going to happen again:
@38.5 weeks pregnant with Baby J.  Sweet Lord, help me (and remind me to buy larger shirts this time).
And that we're going to be blessed with another one of these:
Baby J, the day he was born.
Life is good.
