Dearest Yellowtrace friends,

If you are reading this post, that can only mean one thing – our little ray of sunshine has finally arrived and I am now officially mama yellowtrace. Ummm… Wow! Can you believe it? I am literally pinching myself at the thought of meeting our little baby as I pre-write this post in my super-nerdy organised style.

I just wanted to let you know what will be happening here while I am recovering from birth (no biggie, it’s just a baby!) and taking a wee bit of time to enjoy the ride. Since you guys know how much I love you, I couldn’t possibly leave you hanging for weeks without any content, right? So I’ve stashed away a few posts just for the occasion, plus from next week I am also going to hand over to a lovely bunch of guest contributors, who have been so kind in helping me prepare to take some much needed time off. They are the most wonderful bunch – this you will see. Most of them have their own blogs, some are dear friends with no online pages of their own, and I am equally grateful to all of them for their contribution. So would you please do me a little favour by showing them some love and make them feel welcome the way only you guys know how? Could you do that for me please? Thank you, I really appreciate it.

Now, as I drift back into the world of motherhood (oh man, I still cannot believe this is happening!) I leave you with a little thought and I look forward to catching up with you all very soon.



Until we meet again,
mama yellowtrace xx

    What wonderful news!

    Apparently a person born on the Aries/Taurus cusp has the potential for great satisfaction in life, thanks to the balance of great action and great will.

    (and err PS just quietly impressed on how organised you are)
