Private

Ouch! I hate that word. I am pretty much an open book, so this is the strangest move ever. As I've previously hinted, I've been going through a bit of a rough patch personally. Which sounds odd to me, because I'm without a doubt the happiest I've ever been. Which is pretty unbelievably happy! Tommy is more fabulous than ever and Jude just poops buckets of sunshine and love, so everything is good there. I'm definitely not upset with humanity in general and feel optimistic. It's just that all of the "signs" say to go private. Nothing blog world happened and perhaps I'll change my mind, but for now I'm a bit spooked. I'm going to keep it public until our ONE YEAR ANNIVERSARY of becoming a family, which is coming up VERY quickly.
The good news: I adore blogging/bloggers/sharing cuteness. Please leave your info and I'll add you to my list. I would love for you to continue to share in our journey and our lives. Bonus: During the next year we are planning on traveling to Bosnia, Croatia, Greece and ETHIOPIA. If it's for nothing else, you should want to see pictures of Judah in unbelievably gorgeous places :)

I really enjoy your words- you always make me laugh and I enjoy the fact that you keep it real. We are looking to start on the adoption journey and hope to have you as a source of advice if needed. Please add me to your blog!

Please add me...if only so I can continue to watch that video of little Judah laughing--ok, so he's not so little anymore but I still love that video! ps--my sister has been to Croatia many times and says it is the most beautiful place she's seen...and she's a traveler so that says something. Can't wait to hear why ya'll are going - xoxo-kat

Eastiopians said...

I totally understand, and we'll probably do the same once we have our Ethiopian gal home. Please add me to your list though...you are such a source of knowledge and encouragement on our adoption journey! And yes, Judah is the cutest little boy on the entire planet. ;)

Sooo, I read your blog all the time. I just hardly ever comment. So bad, right? I definitely want to keep up with Sweet Judah (and his parents!)

By the way, I'm pretty sure anywhere Judah is, it's an unbelievably gorgeous place. He pretty much makes it that way! :)

Nicole said...

I'm going to Turkey and Bosnia and Herzegovina and MAYBE Croatia ANNNDD Vietnam tomorrow. But not Ethiopia, yet. I want to go back to Greece with you :( but maybe skip the Pink Palace this time HA!
Add me!

Danni and Tommy said...

You are not going to Vietnam with Judah, so your life is terrible :) Why don't you want to go to the Pink Palace with me? It/I was soooo entertaining last time.

Nicole said...

Ha, because this time I'M too old...5 years too old to be exact. HA! How come 29 feels so young when 24 seemed so old? I think it was more that you guys were married already and I was still staying up seeing the sun rise every morning. But we would totally ROCK the Pink Palace. But I have one question. Are our boobs too saggy now???

Jessica said...

Randomly, I have thought of this myself. For now, I'm an open book. But, when "weirdness" happens, you have to pause. I'd love to be added to the list. And, I can't wait to see all the beauty that Judah brings to your next year!

Oh Dani, I'd love to be continue to be included in your journey. I'm so technically un-savvy that I need to be told what to do next. You can email me at jerriefo@nhra.com.
Thank you.
