Here I Am!!

I know it had been a terribly long time since I've wrote anything. I wish I could write here more.

My recovery from the accident has been progressing well. Over the Christmas break I went to my folks house in Columbus, Ohio and didn't really do much of anything. Well, I ate a lot and went shopping a few times, but overall I took it easy. Around New Year's Eve my knee finally stopped hurting me. I'm able to walk fine now, but I am suffering from some severe back pain. I'm sure it's a combination of my third trimester and the accident. I have less than 10 weeks until Maverik Hudson is born! I can't believe it!!

Erik chose the name and it grew on me quite quickly. We love the fact that it's unique and it means "independent thinker". Plus, you'll notice the spelling of ERIK in MAVERIK too. Erik thought of that too. I chose the middle name after the Hudson River. We lived along the Hudson since we moved to the east coast over five years ago. We've been driving up and down it, traveling by train underneath it, and laying in the grass along it- I just love that river.

Along to some restaurant info...

I love the baby name!! That's an amazing combination and I am glad to hear you're feeling better.

Valentine's Day is coming up so that means yet another Sunday they (restaurant land) will steal away from all of us! haha..

I will celebrate Valentines' Day alone again, and will look on the bright side and have V-Day a week later when all the candy is 50% off and restaurants aren't over booked.

Hope you're feeling better!

What a great name and congrats on the last stretch before baby is here! Also glad to hear you are recovering from the accident.

Thanks Marianna for the reminder about V day! It's good to know that we are not the only ones who end up skipping Valentines day since my chef will also be working on his day off.

I scheduled a babysitter and some massages for my chef and I the week before V day. Just another way of celebrating the holiday in our own way!
