Welcome to the world Rylie...

Today is one of the most memorable days of my life.  Today we will welcome another daughter, Rylie Ann McDonald.  While this pregnancy has not been easy, and I have anxiously been waiting for almost 40 weeks to meet this little bean, I have been graciously surrounded by amazing friends and family who have supported me through it all.  THANK YOU!

There have been times when I felt as though I couldn't do it anymore.  I couldn't be a wife, mother, daughter, sister, friend & business owner all at the same time.  I cannot lie and say the past 40 weeks have not been trying at times - in fact...all the time. 

But this year I have been blessed to meet some absolutely AMAZING people in this industry who aren't afraid to share their struggles with me and who are a constant encouragement to me.  You know who you are and I thank you from the bottom of my heart.

This is the last post I will write where I will be a mom to one daughter...after 8 a.m. today I will have two precious beans to love on. 

Here is one last picture of our sweet family of three...soon to be family of four :)  You can see pics of sweet Rylie on my facebook page...she will debut on the blog a little bit later!
