Color of the Day - PINK!!!!!!!!!!

The post we've all been waiting for.... It's official - we have PINK!!!! Our Embassy appointment is Monday August 28 at 7:15 AM. Since baby drop-offs are only during the week, we have to be in Guatemala no later than Friday. So, we are scrambling now to find out the most economical way to get there and see if we can use our miles for a free ticket or not. We may have to go Thursday in order to do that.

Gabriella will be in our arms forever by Friday afternoon at the latest. We are so thankful.

Stay tuned!!!
