A new life

In May it will have been a year since we left the US behind and set out to start a new life here in Sweden. Its been quite the journey. New home, new job, new city in a new country (for David at least). So somehow it feels really fitting that this May we will welcome a new life into our little family.

We are so thankful to start this new chapter in our life. I cherish every day I get to experience being pregnant. Its amazing. Everyday my tummy grows bigger. I can feel the little one doing acrobats inside and I can't help to wonder if it's a little girl or a little guy doing flips. We decided that we wanted to be surprised so we didn't find out the sex on the ultrasound.

I have to apologize for not keeping up with my blog. I just had to focus on more important things... but I hope I will be able to share the rest of this journey with all of you.

Have a wonderful day my friends!
