Hi friends, I wanted to introduce you guys to a very special family the Gross's. They are officially our first S.I. friends! I meet Christine at Starbucks on Monday and then Wednesday we went on the longest walk ever not really but the North Shore is all hills and I think we both felt like we walked them all! Steven & Christine have the most precious little girl Eva (isn't she cute)!

You guys would have been so proud to see me talk to a stranger granted I had my black jacket on and you know with the binkie in place I can trick my mind into thinking I'm a stronger person than I am. Thank God for Starbucks and courage! For the first time since we got here my hope was renewed that this was the best decision we've ever made! I can't wait for you guys to come to NY and meet the Gross's!
