This year has in many ways been the best and worst year of my life. I started it out, newly pregnant and constantly throwing up. It was hell. They say you forget how awful being pregnant is once you have that sweet baby. They lie. Most of this year was physically miserable for me. I spent very little time in the kitchen.
And then I met my sweet girl. And everything changed. As harrowing as those first few weeks were, they led to more joy then I could possibly comprehend. I have a feeling 2013 will be the best year yet. Filled with giggles, first steps, and a million more firsts. I can’t wait for it all. Happy New Years boys and girls. I’ll be toasting to my tiny girl tonight.
Happy New Year from your California cousin Susan. Your grandfather on your dad’s side was brothers with my grandfather Peter Lowden.
She is absolutely as cute and precious as she can be. I can sure understand how enamored you are with her. Bless her heart. Thanks for your blog and sharing your incredible cooking talent as well as photography!
All the best with the New Year!
