It’s a little weird to have this epic thing bubbling through my life, walking around like a double-agent with a happy, hopeful (anxious!) secret but pretending it’s just your average Monday. The impulse is to shout it from the rooftops (except when I’m having bouts of dry-mouthed, flutter-hearted panic over the threat of a quick and deadly silent end to my precious bean).
Here on the blog, I did get that chance, and the visceral excitement I got back has really bowled me over – readers I didn’t even know I had, who followed this journey, invested in me, and emerged from shadows to celebrate in kind this initial boon. This post is for you, girls, my ‘friends in the computer’ whom I’m thinking of with such gratitude and humility tonight.
