Baby Aulenback, and other announcements

Been at the eye doctor all afternoon. Those drops they put in my eyes are making everything, including the words I’m typing, look like an airbrushed scene on a ’79 van.

But I had to jump online to say that my dear friend Stephany Aulenback (of Literary Mama) went into labor more than a month early. And yesterday morning she gave birth to Luke (4 pounds 13 ounces). Yippee!

Mom and baby are, as they say, resting comfortably at the hospital.

And as long as I’m making announcements, guess who got married?
