We're getting close to done with the nursery...I'm nesting! But I really want to get things done before school starts. Here are a few snapshots of the room. As you can see I don't have much on the walls so far, but we're getting there!
Finally I think that I am ready to let everyone know about our website. Here it is! Please pass the address along to others who I may not have on my list! Everyone who wants is invited to follow us on the journey to our dear, sweet daughter! We're thrilled that we only have about 4 more months until we know who she is. 4 months...ugh...that's still WAY TOO LONG!

I look forward to going to China. Not only to meet my daughter, which makes up 99.9% of my excitement, but that last .1% is excited to get to travel in Asia. So far I've visited 3 of the 7 continents, Asia will make it 4!
I am hopeful that we will get to see several different parts of China. We are assuming that we will fly into Beijing, where we will hopefully spend a few days sightseeing until it's time to fly to Sichuan, the province were Emily is more than likely living. (We requested it.) From there we will fly to Guangzhou in the south, not far from Hong Kong. We will have three different climates in each region: cold, moderate and warm!
So thinking about this trip brought up the question, what has been my favorite place to visit? Hmm...that's a tough one, but I think it would be Finale Ligure. A tiny little town at the western end of the Italian Riviera. Tom and I visited Finale in 1998. We had been traveling all around Europe and we were exhausted from too many overnight train rides. We were ready to get somewhere and stay awhile. We'd never heard of Finale, but it was the last stop on the local train, so we decided to try it.
Gorgeous! We crashed on the beach for a whole day and slept like babies that night! My favorite part was that we saw no other Americans. We had come across a true Italian town, with only European vacationers. Everyone spoke to us in German, assuming we were vacationing from Germany. I've seen many amazing places, but Finale just might take the cake!
