Welcome to the world Mara Hope.

Born on Friday, we are so grateful for our sweet baby girl. More info to come.

For now, you will find me blissfuly snuggling my sweet girl while breathing in her newborn scent. There’s nothing I love more, nowhere else I’d rather be. <3

  3. THIS IS THE BEST NEWS! It’s amazing and such an incredible gift that she came on a weekend that so many all around the world celebrate new life in Christ because Jesus LIVES! And I love her name. How did you pick it?

    1. Thank you Emily!! πŸ™‚ YES! I was super glad that she was born on Good Friday so my hubby could still preach the sermon on Easter Sunday! πŸ™‚

    We celebrated Laura today by enjoying her baked Falafel and Carrot Cake at our Easter table.

    The Sandfords were missed at the Ryan Easter table, that’s for sure!
