For those of you who saw our exciting Paris Baby Announcement, We’re Expecting! Now that the cat’s out of the bag, it’s time for our next big announcement….the gender reveal! We (okay, it was me & I talked Ben into doing it with me) got this super cute balloon on etsy! We sent them our results & they filled the balloon with confetti for us!
The rain has been coming in torrents so it delayed our little announcement so one Sunday, when we saw the sun peek out we grabbed our balloon & headed out to bay trail right by our house! Unfortunately, after hiding for so long that sun was crazy bright AND
that wind was not cooperating with my balloon concept!
Soooo….we walked back home & tried again right at sunset! The sun lit the sky in pinks & blue and the wind gently waved the tassels. This mama was a happier camper!
Ben jumped into the scene with me so that we could pop our balloon!!!
It’s a boy!!!!
A new baby is like the beginning of all things – wonder, hope, a dream of possibilities.

Sometimes, the smallest things take up the most room in your heart.
The lights of San Francisco slowly started to blink on as we gathered our confetti. Good thing we came out at “Blue Hour” for our Baby Boy announcement! 😉

Sometimes it comes from the sheer fun I have in the kitchen, sometimes it comes from the excitement of getting to share with others, and sometimes […]
