Back to Bloggin'

Hi There Everyone! 
So after much consideration, I have decided to hop on the ole blog wagon and make my blog public once again. I sure have missed my sweet bloggy friends and I am so..... happy to be back;) A lot has happened in the last three months, and I certainly have a ton of catching up to do, but as for now, I'll just begin with the present. 
And that is.....
 PACKING FOR CHINA!!! 
 Yup, that's right...in less that six days Shane and I will board a plane and travel to the other side of the world to meet our precious daughter for the very first time!!!!!!!!!!!!
Oh my heart--are we EXCITED!!!!!!
We cannot wait to get our hands on this precious little girl!

 And because I don't want to forget ANY of the events or details that will take place over the next several weeks and months, I figured that there was no better time than now to begin blogging once again!

So get ready Miss Addy-Kate...cause your mommy and daddy are coming to get you really REALLY soon!!!!!!!
