Changes on the Way

So we have a little announcement…so little that it is about the size of a small apple right now. Dayna is pregnant! Baby Baker is about 15 weeks along now and due in October. Needless to say, we’re very excited as it’s something we’ve been wanting for a while.

All those amazing trips came at a pretty heavy cost for us as between trips...

Enjoy! You can read about all the little details like the dress, location, flowers etc here. The night before After saying goodbye to Matt at the end of our pre-wedding guest picnic in the park, I wondered when or even if I was going to be hit with the overwhelming realisation that we were getting married. I’d spent the last two...
