Girl!

Girl!!  SO excited to be an Aunt, and this is also the best part of being a younger sister –usually my older sister goes through things first and I benefit from all of her lessons learned…

It is so funny that last month I’d been on a vacation in Ireland, on the beaches and mountains of Mallorca, and discovered what was to be my favorite city in Europe (Barcelona)… I’d experienced my first Irish wedding -complete with 4am singing session and 6am walk to watch the sunrise…I tasted my first *authentic* Catalan tapas and paella…revisited the place where I met my husband and where we were engaged…I got to be with my best friend for her fabulous wedding in North Carolina …and had the chance to relax over a meal with my parents for the first time in a long time…

…all in one fantastic month…

But the BEST thing about May was when my sister called me to let me know they found out that their little baby is a GIRL! I cannot wait to meet my niece —Charlotte Elizabeth –and spoil her silly!
