Sad news

I just thought I should let those of you who knew I was pregnant that I’m losing the baby to this pretty awful neural tube defect.

I’m doing alright, but am understandably sad about all of this. I have to have a D&C this afternoon.

Thanks to all of you who had earlier sent me posts/email of congratulations. They were appreciated, and I truly enjoyed sharing the happy part of this journey with you all.

I’ll be closing the store for a few days to take care of myself and my family.
