What great travel tips and photos you have shared since you have been back! Thank you so much for taking the time to do that. It is soooooo much appreciated by people like me who will be following in those same footsteps hopefully sometime this year. I cannot wait to get to HH and meet our future daughter! Yours is absolutely gorgeous and it is incredible how much she has attached to you! What a gift!
