Introducing …

It is with great joy that I introduce you to …

Amelia Jean


Born August 1, 2011

20 inches long

8lbs. 7 oz


Thank you all for your prayers, good vibes, and sweet thoughts.  We have felt them all and appreciate your kindness.  As I told the other Simple Living Media editors earlier this week, delirious is my favorite kind of happy and we are certainly deliriously happy to have Mia here!

And, now, back to that blogging break …

“I actually remember feeling delight, at two o’clock in the morning, when the baby woke for his feed, because I so longed to have another look at him.” – Margaret Drabble
