We ended up having quite a Labor Day weekend.

SONY DSCOur healthy little guy decided to arrive 3 weeks early, and we couldn’t be happier to meet him!

I plan on sharing my birth story in the future, and have a number of tasty recipes lined up for the next 6 weeks, but please excuse my absence while I go smother him with love…
