Happy News!

Sarah’s baby girl has arrived safely! I’m a wee bit short on details. At 6:17 EST, Andy sent me a picture. Alas, my phone doesn’t “do” pictures. I can’t see a thing. He sent the picture to other people, too. And they saw it. I know this because they responded with great jubilation.

And that, my friends, is all I know. I promise to return soon with a proper announcement. In the meantime, please whisper a prayer for Sarah, Andy, that sweet rosebud of a baby, and the rest of the lovely bouquet.
