New Zealand - Things you can & can't bring back

You can't bring back:
  • the delicious food
  • the clean air
  • the magnificent views
  • or any nice rocks you found
You can bring back:
  • your photos
  • organic hand cream
  • the peace you found
  • and the baby you made
Yep.  It sure is a relaxing place!

We've announced out exciting news to just about everyone we can think of (minus a few people who don't answer their phones!!) so now I'm sharing it with the world.  That flat belly is already gone.  Sad but happy.

Very happy.  Very blessed.

Onwards with the journey...
