The Stork Has Arrived!


The big day has finally arrived! Kathryn Magendie and I are googly-eyed but happy.

Mega thanks to Managing Editor Cynthia Toups, Newsletter Producer Susan Kramer, and the rest of the staff who helped get Rose & Thorn Journal ready for our Grand Opening. It should have hit the airwaves after 12:43 (that's the time right now as I'm pecking out this post). 

Thanks also to our many blogging friends who helped spread the good news this week. 'Preciate YOU!

I've played around with a Word doc to create a baby announcement of sorts. Either there'll be something legible below, or just a big blob of garbled colors and letters. (But as it's after midnight Wednesday, and I've been up since 2:00 AM, just take my word that I'm nearly blind and crazy by this point.)

Here's the announcement I *tried* to upload, but with no success, so I took a picture of it on my computer monitor. ha!





Go by and check out the Rose & Thorn, and while you're there, don't forget to sign up for the quarterly newsletter. We'd love to hear your thoughts too. I promise, our new site is much better than my derailed attempt at a cute announcement.

Congrats, congrats! How were the labor pains??? And the pushing? Did they give you any meds????

Angie Ledbetter said...

Thanks Suzanne!

lakeviewer, will look forward to hearing what you tought of it.

Angie Ledbetter said...

AMoS -- Labor was long and, well, laborsome (LOL), and since I'm anesthesia resistant, the pain meds (coffee) didn't do much good...but it was all WELL WORTH IT! :)

Deb Shucka said...

Big congrats to you both! This is no small achievement. I hope you're button-busting proud.

Lady Glamis said...
