As I'm sure you can imagine by the unusual silence here on the blog I have some news to share.
My daughter Lucia Isabella was born on Thursday, June 24th at 11:49 pm. Her dad and I are madly in love with her and each other and we are so excited about this new chapter in our lives. She was five days early so she must have been just as eager to meet us as we were to meet her. Now that she's here we can't imagine life without her and her beautiful face.
I'm in the process of looking through photos that we have taken of her and I'd love to share them here. But, I'm taking my time to enjoy these first moments with my new family.
In the meantime, I have lined up some wonderful guest bloggers who have graciously agreed to make a cameo on Ciao, Chessa! Starting next week and for the entire month of July, you will see some familiar and perhaps unfamiliar bloggers here. I know you will enjoy! I will also be making some posts here and there to introduce my wonderful girl to you.
Until then...here she is on the day we brought her home less than 48 hours after she was born in a quick photo taken with my iPhone.
Thanks for reading!
