November Update

A quick update of this month.

Things seemed to fly by once again. We were lucky enough to spend time with Andrew and Stephanie for a little bit. While they were on their trip to Ireland we were lucky enough to get to spend many dinners and lots of time with Mikael, Eva, Leighton and Dean. The time just flew by.

Mikael was sweet enough to let me help in giving her a baby shower (we can't wait to meet the little guy).

Before we knew it it was time to head up to Utah for Thanksgiving. We had a ton of fun with the family and Harley loved all the shopping she got done.  We are ready for Christmas.

While we were up there I was able to meet with a new doctor I have been working with to go over some more blood work and other tests. I have officially be diagnosed with Hashimoto's (an autoimmune disease). So now we are on our journey to figure out how to move forward and hopefully send this beast into remission. Basically it is giving me hypothyroidism by attacking my body. Diet will be the key factor and I am ready to learn all I can so I have the energy to keep up with my family. I am so happy to finally have answers and excited to move forward on a new journey in life, even if I have to give up some of my favorite foods (good-bye gluten).  I am excited to see what the next month will bring and what memories will be made. I just hope to be better at capturing it in pictures.
