My New Favorite Word in Italian.


I love learning new languages.

I spent all spring with my brain in a knot
trying to better my French.

I'm always learning new vocabulary
to help my Italian get fuller.

And I'm in Iceland right now
laughing at how ridiculously hard this language is.

I love the challenge of unlocking what words mean.

But this time,
I'm taking a standard Italian word
and translating it into something 
that means a bit more than the standard translation.



Si!

Bimbi a bordo! 

I'm 17 weeks {and 4 days}
and due March 16.

Tyler & I feel humbled and excited 
as we begin to get ready for this next adventure.

Thanks for your love & support during this special time.

It means the world to us to share the news with those we love.

  84. Congrats Lauren!

    Since having my own wee one in April, I'm extremely behind on both reading and writing blogs, so I'm only stumbling on this now but am absolutely thrilled for you! I think this will be a wonderful addition to your life and your story, and I for one cannot wait to follow along!

    Many, many wonderful wishes!
