Catching up with the bump

November 4, 2013




Hello! How are we all? I’ve missed you, I really have! We’ve been in Richmond for just over a week and we’re adjusting just fine. The weather has been amazing and the people and warm welcomes, almost overwhelming. I’ve never known such an outpouring of kindness and open arms in my life! Everyone we meet exchanges contact information with us and invites us over for drinks or dinner. Even my new auto insurance agent invited me out for coffee! Richmond, you sure do know your way around hospitality.

There’s so SO much I want to share with you guys about our move and our new city, and I can’t wait to get back to regular posting. Rest assured, you’ll be seeing a lot more of me around here very soon. In the meantime, here’s a little bump update from the past few weeks. There’s no hiding it now, this bump is on! -xo

    I love seeing the bump updates! It helps me see a visual of what my sister looks like (you’re the same amount of weeks pregnant) since she lives thousands of miles away! This is so exciting, you look fantastic by the way!!

    You look amazing! And it is so great to hear that people are inviting you and you are settling in well :) I have moved a year ago and it is still hard to make connection, so you are really blessed :) I hope you enjoy this new life with all your heart :D

    I love your blog! I am 17 weeks pregnant and just moved from Arkansas to Annapolis, Maryland, so I relate to you very well. I get my baby fruit size updates from the and they always make me laugh. Maybe I’m out of touch on my fruit sizes but I would be so confused when my baby would supposedly go from a peach to a lemon. I sort of thought lemons were smaller than peaches, but what do I know?
