The things we do for our blogs – I have never shown this picture to anyone. Ever. And here it is now, on the Internet. (Before this picture was taken, I had no idea my face was so…… bloated.)
On December 21, 2009, this is how I looked.
38 weeks 3 days pregnant with my first child.
We were in Perth, Western Australia.
The husband was out solo sailing on the lake and I was at a nearby cafe eating this.
Sticky date pudding with vanilla ice cream and caramel sauce. What? I was hugely pregnant.
After he was done sailing, he had a coffee on the bench while I sat, heavy, huge, and sweating next to him.
And then the black swans came.
Did you know they only live in Western Australia?
They mate for life.
Even when one swims far away, they always come back to their mate. Always.
Just as we should.
8 days after this picture was taken, this little one was born.
Can you believe how fast time flies? (linking this to lovelinks #36)
Do you remember where you were on December 2009?
