A Note of Gratitude



I cannot put into words how much your beautiful comments and e-mails have meant to us. We read each and every one of them together, and we're both deeply touched by the outpouring of love and warmth from everyone.

Thank you dear, dear friends for extending your blessings, thoughts, well wishes and notes of happiness. Thank you, thank you, thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

This photo was taken just yesterday...baby bump is a little over 14 weeks. xoxo

Keep taking those garden pics. Looking back you'll know the date, & pace of your pregnancy, by the flowers-buds-berries-fall foliage.

Girl, you are more radiant than those blooms !

On Saturday a family was at our home selecting their new puppy, while their adorable 4 year old twin girls fed the koi with my husband, I shared your wonderful story. With moist eyes all around - they told me their own story of struggle, obviously followed by blond curly success - with wishes of all the best to you. A beautiful photo of you that your children will cherish.

Our House and Our Work-in-Progress said...

Hi Trina!

I have been following your blog for almost a year now and have had yet to comment. We too have a farmhouse that we are in the process of renovating and I only dream that our home will someday look like yours! Congratulations on motherhood! Children change you in wonderful, inexplicable ways. I can't wait to see pictures of the nursery!

teresa-bug said...

Such a sweet picture!! You look great!

CASA BRASI said...

You look beautiful! Congrats again!

A Lasting First Impression said...

You look beautiful, what a lovely glow about you! I love when the baby bump begins to show...what a blessing! Hope you are feeling strong and healthy!

Haley said...

I always wished I had a twin. My sister and I are very close in age and people always thought we were twins. We're best friends, but it would be even cooler if we really were twins!

Yesterday I went to a baby shower for a 42-year-old woman having her first baby. She didn't try to get pregnant until she was 40, and then she suffered a miscarriage at the beginning of her second trimester, but now she's finally having a son in a couple months. You both look so young and healthy! Being pregnant must really agree with you!

lindaraxa said...

A most beautiful picture...but I think you mean baby bumpS!

Carolyne said...

As dewy and beautiful as the peonies you're holding!
Your story is heartwarming and poignant; definitely the beginnings of a lovely treasure-filled book for your babes.
I am so very happy for you and your honey. But, do get lots of peaceful quiet now......you'll need those in your Memory Bank during long winter nights......much like a little Secret Garden!

{{{hugs}}}

24 Corners said...

Trina...you look so happy and beautiful, and there is a calm peace that is radiating from you, so lovely to see.

The Greek meaning of the word joy is "a calm delight"...I think you represent that *joy* right now, to it's fullest meaning.

Blessings to you, hubby and the babes (so fun to see them!)~ xxoo Jessica

Congratulations, I had my last baby at 39 years old...had the first three before age 27 ( 4 in all ). 12 years later God decided to bless us one last time after a few miscarriages and hope completely gone from me. Many blessings to you and your husband..boy will life change for you two soon ! ha, good things ahead, Gina

Maurie said...

With joy I read your news. As I watched your home progress, I often thought how much some children would add to the landscape. Now, you can laugh with joy at the blessings coming your way. I smile and praise the Lord with you. Indeed, "children are a gift" from him.

Kelly Green said...

A huge congratualtions on your exciting news! What an exciting time ahead you both have! KG

It looks like you and the babies are blooming; I'll keep sending my best wishes from Washington via the winds!

You are beautiful and beaming! So glad you are taking us on this journey with you!

erin said...

Congratulations! So happy for you both. That is wonderful news. I noticed the comment about the nursery, and I concur.
p.s. my husband and I have only been married a year and a half but we were on the same time frame of falling in love and marrying in less than a year with our anniversary in October as well. Being able to get pregnant when the time comes has definitely crossed my mind as we got married at almost 30. So excited for your blessing of twins!

jen said...

MAZEL TOV! So happy to hear about the happy ending (and beginning!) to your story.

Privet and Holly said...

Having walked in your shoes {infertility, etc.} I can say that this will absolutely be one of the happiest times of your life, as you bloom and grow, dream and plan. It will be wonderful once the babies have arrived, but in a very different ~ and hectic, exciting, way ~ and you will never be the same. Drink in every moment until their arrival. So happy for you!! xx Suzanne

The Mom said...

Oh oh a Double blessing! You are going to have your hands full of joy! I will be praying for you and your husband that all will go well. Your blog has brought serenity and peace to me as I have read. My house and life seem noisy, cluttered and a bit crazy in comparison. But hey, who's comparing. We each should walk in joy in what we have been apportioned. But I am thankful that you are being given the gift of motherhood. Savor this time. It is so very special.

Congratulations and thanks for sharing with us. I have to say that these babies just made your blog even more exciting. We'll all want to "tune in" for baby news as well as house news! There's something so miraculous about a baby growing inside your body. I can only imagine the excitement of two! One for each of you to hold. We rejoice with you. :)

Andrea said...

Tearing up as I type this...I missed the post where you talked about infertility and only just now read it. I have struggled with infertility and know first hand how heartbreaking it is. I can also feel your joy!!! We have now two boys and it is worth the wait and every tear shed! Congratulations!!!! What a wonderful place you have to raise your babies. Keep the beautiful pictures coming!

Greetings from Madison WI! So happy to hear your incredible news! TWINS!! By now you've heard from so many of us who have struggled with fertility problems. Our children are 12 years apart with the last born when I was 41! You and your husband have realized your dream! Enjoy every minute!

I have been enjoying your blog for awhile now but have never commented. I am so thrilled for you and your husband. May God bless you abundantly!

Patty said...

May God continue to shower you with His blessings. You're blog is incredibly beautiful. I'm so happy to find it! Similar, my husband and I renovated an old farm house and made our dream come true. It was an old pig farm & is on 10 acres. Our children were in grade school when we found it. It took 9 months to renovate it and we've made MANY, MANY, MANY wonderful memories.
Now, it's your turn to live the life you imagined. God's timing is always perfect.
You are so beautiful! May the coming months be merry for you & your husband.
Blessed.

the growers daughter said...

Being pregnant is one of the most beautiful things... just wait until you get to actually hold your baby for the first time - it's a feeling you never forget. Being parents is the most wonderful thing! My husband and I still say to eachother that we still can't quite believe that we have a son (who's now 1) and that he's ours!
