one week ago

One week ago, Ben and I were in Kentucky. We were sitting with our friends Scott and Carissa at a quirky, classy restaurant called Natasha's in downtown Lexington. I drank decaf french-press and they tasted international wines to the toe-tappin tunes of a blues band. It was delightful. The whole weekend was a much anticipated and enjoyed retreat - our last vacation "just the two of us." Ben and Scott played 7 games of Settlers of Catan. Carissa and I made yummies in the kitchen and spent some much needed girl time. It was just so good to be us, to be with friends, to be lazy and spoiled.

And Carissa offered to take some pregnancy pictures for me. She is great at what she does. You should check out her blog. She set up the camera and lights on Sunday afternoon and I came away with some pictures that I will treasure always. I'm not super excited about splashing my belly across the blogosphere, but I'll share a few "safe" ones - if you'd like to see the rest, come on over for a visit. We'll drink tea and look at bellies.

Very, very nice. Wish someone had offered to do the same for me. I can't remember much about those days and it wasnt't even that long ago.

Thanks friends! Not gonna lie, I think my belly is pretty adorable. But I think the little one inside needs to come out soon!

What great pictures! I think you should have them on display at your shower. Otherwise, could I come over for some tea and belly looking?
