some exciting news…

Dec 19, 2011

Yes, it’s true! My husband and I are delighted to share that we’re parents-to-be! We’re expecting our little bundle of joy to arrive in the Spring, an April baby! 2012 is going to be a magical year, I just know it!! We’re so excited! :-)

I had a little shopping trip this past weekend, with my friend Jane, who was visiting from the UK. There was a special reason for our shopping trip.. we were looking for something PINK! Baby Carstens is a GIRL!!!!! :-)

And this beautiful outfit (from Noppies’ Spring Collection) is the first item we’ve bought for her, and you can see she has a little gift from her Aunty Jane too :)

We really can’t stop smiling!

With love,
~Natalie
