Foodie Baby

Same weekend, three years ago, we met up in Phoenix, Arizona from all over the country to celebrate sisterhood and my upcoming marriage. Two and a half years ago, we met up in Woodbury, Minnesota and danced the night away at my wedding. This past weekend, we once again joined together but in Tucson, Arizona. We joined together with macaroons from San Francisco, cake pops from Houston, and a jet-lagged D.C. traveler who returned less than a week ago from a month in India. This time we celebrated the joy (and adventure) of motherhood! Baby Girl has reached a milestone of full-term at 37 weeks - we are all anxiously awaiting her arrival. It definitely takes a village to raise a child. We are blessed to have so much support and warm open arms to welcome our Baby Girl into this world!
