  1. Happy New Years, sweetie! I just thought I'd comment on here for the first time since Olivia was born. I don't quite remember now how I first came across your lovely blog, but I've been reading it since Olivia's first day on Earth, and I've just been in love with it all ever since! I love the way you write, the way you take and edit your pictures (in such lovely ways), and how you bring us, your readers, through every up and down in life - but even if there's something not too good going on and happening, I always seem to find some little bit of positivity in there anyways. I wish I could write as good as you! You are a beautiful woman, you really seem to have a wonderful relationship with your husband, and Olivia is just the darn cutest little baby girl I have ever seen!
    I live all the way over in Norway, and I check your blog every single day. These past weeks I've actually been pretty worried that you weren't blogging anymore, but with the sad passing of your newphew, I can see how updating your blog hasn't been your first priority. I will keep his family in my prayers, and I just hope they know that even though they lost a son, they now have a little angel watching over them in Heaven.
    I don't really know what the point of this comment was, I just wanted to let you know that I come in here every day and hope to see a new post, and I hope that with the New Years, I hope you can slowly return to blogging regularly again! Although I can understand if it will still take you some time to become a regular updater again, with the tragic incident that has occured. I just hope you never stop blogging, because I love it! :)

  2. The post above made me tear up! That's so sweet. I'm a new reader and follower but I'll def be sticking around. I love your blog and have caught up. I'm so sorry for the passing of your nephew and I pray for you and your family! I hope that you continue to blog and I can read more about you and your beautiful little girl!
