It’s Our Wedding Anniversary! But That’s Not All…

Hi Mamas!

Today, Joe and I are celebrating our relationship, our family, and the home we built together. Three years have flown by, and quite a lot has changed since that summer day we exchanged our vows with our feet in the sand and the push and pull of waves in the distance.

Actually… Everything has changed.

Less than a year after that idyllic day, we welcomed Liam, the sunshine of our lives. He taught us to be better versions of ourselves, and every single day we strive to be the best parents that we can be, for him. He is our motivation.

It has been a blessing to watch this little seed of our love grow into a little man of his own, watch as he develops his strong personality and sense of independence (“Liam Riehm do!”) We’re so incredibly lucky and proud to be able to witness it all.

But remember how I said on social media that I had some very exciting news to share this morning?

…. And we can finally share it with the world 🙂

We are so excited to announce that our little family of three will be expanding in February 2018!

The question is: A little Superman or Supergirl… what will it be? Stay tuned!

( As you can see, I had a hard time picking just one announcement photo – They’re just too cute, I couldn’t help myself! Love our little Clark Kent ♥  )
