38 more days

You all have no idea how much I want to buy nursery things and baby toys, and little vintage dresses lately. It's crazy. We are living by a very strict budget and it seems that the more we save, the more I want to buy things for this little baby :)

Saving for this adoption has been so rewarding though, it's so great seeing her little account grow and grow. It's also so incredibly humbling to see all of the support and help and donations from all of our wonderful friends online. Seriously, ever single person who has ever bought a journal class spot from me, sent a donation, a baby bottle full of change, or purchased anything out of my Etsy shop...your name has gone into a little book that I am saving for Miss Pita. This is a list of all of her aunties and uncles all over the world who helped bring her home to us :)
Thank you seems like such a small sentiment compared to all of that love that you have shown our family :)

March is the month that we actually begin the process, we knew that with our budgeting and such,that would we have enough money to send in with our application :) You guys March is only 38 days away!! I am over the moon with excitement.

Yesterday, Adam and I were both off of work due to the weather. I was cleaning out my studio and doing some sewing and I could hear Adam in the other room watching "An Adoption Story" on television. It melted my heart. He's going to be the best dad ever.

Anyway, since I can't shop, I have been building the world's cutest WISHlist of baby stuff over at Amazon :)  Their universal wishlist is the world's greatest creation :)  If you want to check out my wishlist and tell me any must haves that I am missing, I would LOVE it :) Most of the things are decor related (of course) so I need help with the more practical things.
 Sometimes it's fun to just dream and wish.  You can check it out right HERE <3

Again, thank you, from the bottom of my heart,
i love you all so much.
