What We've Really Been Cooking Lately.

Do you know that I am not a great secret keeper? Especially when the secret is good news. I'm less of the keep-my-mouth-shut type and more of the shout-it-from-the-rooftops type.

And, when I am tasked with keeping quiet about the best news ever, I've found it's easier for me to just not talk to anyone than it is for me to keep it to myself. Hence the fact that I've kind of been ignoring you for the last two and a half months, blog friends.

But it's not just you. I've been ignoring a lot of things in my life. My garden. My kitchen. My meal plans. My exercise. My cleaning. My camera. Even my children (but only a little).

I am, however, extremely well-acquainted with my bed. And my couch.

So, now that I am slowly lifting my head off the pillow, I think it's time to come clean before I just explode with secret-keeping. What makes you so tired you lose the will to do anything but spend your days in the horizontal position and so nauseated you turn green at the thought of cooking one single thing and so grateful you feel like your heart may burst?

You guessed it:

Baby's first photo, taken 6 weeks ago.

I'm pregnant.

With a little White Hot baby. And Hugh and I are already completely and totally smitten.

More details to come, but suffice to say our excitement level is off the charts. We've basically been one big non-stop celebration since August 15th.

Can you even believe it?!
