I am leaving in a few short hours for San Fransisco, CA.

For the first time ever, I am leaving behind these guys.



I cant believe how long its been since I posted a picture of these sweet little people.




Of those tiny baby teeth and shining eyes.




Of my little ones out and about enjoying the world.


It is impossibly hard to leave them today…

…my heart hurts thinking that I might miss one moment of joy or one more opportunity to express delight in their accomplishments.

I know its good for me as well as them.

But that doesn't change the fact that I will miss them dreadfully.

At least I know they are in good hands

  1. My husband took our boys up to Fargo last year when I went to BlogHer Food. Was so hard on me but they had a blast bonding with dad + riding horses. And then once I made a few friends at BlgHer I was fine. Have fun!

  2. they are absolutely precious – but this trip will be good for mom and I bet you’ll come back all refreshed and inspired!! I can’t believe how much Audrey has changed!!

  3. Hey sweet friend! I trust you have had a wonderful trip to SF. How exciting for you to have that opportunity!
    I have been thinking about you frequently – was surprised when I heard about your pregnancy ‘scare’, but so glad it was simply the Best Mistake Ever. (Gianna had links to those posts. And I came over to read.) God has His hand on you and your baby, and I pray the peace of knowing that truth will carry you today.
    Much love,
