Thank you + Details

Thank you all for your sweet comments, congratulations, and for putting up with the "horrible return-from-oblivion" post. :) We appreciate your love and excitement so much!

So, for the details. Baby is due October 15th, which means it gets to be born in the midst of a beautiful DC fall and which also means it gets to gestate through the entire long and I'm sure incredibly hot DC summer. So I'll be sweating bullets, but at least it will be cozy.

I've been (thankfully) feeling really good so far. Very little nausea - only a tiny bit in the morning until I eat, at which point I am totally fine - and my other symptoms have been equally mild. Hooray!

Other than that, we are just super excited. We are on a quarter system at school, so I'm hoping to sneak in the first set of finals right before Baby's arrival, and I'm planning on taking the second quarter off for the most part (save one required class). It works out rather perfectly.

So I guess that's about it. :) Any other questions?

In other news, we took an incredibly quick trip up to Philly from Thursday afternoon-Friday afternoon. I almost got teary when we pulled into the city. Man I love that place. Three cheers for my sister-in-law going there and carrying on the Philadelphia love!

The Return

I know. It's been nearly 4 months post-post. And now I just show back up? I'll try to make it worth your while.

a) The weather is now gorgeous. It is supposed to hit 90 today. This means walking downtown to the Cherry Blossom Festival and having picnics and going on bike rides. It also means the Phillies destroyed the Nats on Monday, and that we get to see them repeat it tomorrow night.

b) I'll be interning at Education Pioneers this summer. It was a long and hard decision between that and other perhaps more glamorous-to-business-school-students offers, but I am SUPER excited to get to do something I love (marketing) in a field about which I am passionate (urban education). It worked out particularly well because I will get to stay in DC this summer, important because of...
