Our Little Secret

At the beginning of the summer Luke and I decided to commit nightly to praying about our future.

Sure we always pray about our future, but this time we had specific questions and we were ready for some clear direction from the Big Man.

So we went before God and asked him to please CLEARLY show us what was next in our lives.

And He answered. He clearly showed us a couple of tiny pink lines.

In mid July we found out that we were pregnant!

To be honest, it wasn't exactly what we had in mind for the next chapter of our lives but we were beyond excited when we found out.

Excited and scared.....that's normal right?

A couple of weeks ago we went and heard the heart beat and got to see our little Baby Tree.

We affectionally call this picture the gummy bear picture:
So this my friends, is the reason why I haven't been posting as many blogs lately. Every time I sit down to write a blog the only items I can think to discuss are pregnancy related.

Such as, how I'm hungry All. The. Time. Or how all of my clothes are ALREADY crazy tight and it is freaking me out, or how I thought I loved Luke unconditionally and then he ate the last of my Cheez-its and I had to remind myself why I married him (don't worry he has since bought me several boxes and I love him again), or many other pregnancy related topics.

We are excited about this new journey in our lives and invite you to follow along in this new chapter.

Yup, these two crazy kids are going to be parents. Lord help us all!!!
