Our Little Firefly

There is something magical about seeing the first firefly every year. The twinkling lights, like stars hanging close to the ground, mark the season. They can make you smile like a child and take you back to those days when holding one in your hands was a thrill.


I remember catching them in my bug box that Grandma's neighbor made for me and putting them on my nightstand, my own little stars floating in my room.

I have always loved fireflies and they still bring the same smile to my face.

There is a special firefly that has a smile on my face lately...

Husband and I have captured our own little Firefly.

He's due to arrive January 2nd.

We just found out yesterday that we're expecting a sweet little boy and we couldn't be more excited! I can't wait to put paint on the walls of his room and get everything ready!
(sorry no pictures cause, well, I've just always thought that was a little strange)
