Welcome 2013 + Sharing Our Big News!


Happy New Year from the Liesemeyer Family!

We thought we would kick off the year with our surprise we have been keeping a secret for the past few months! Although it was a surprise to us, we were overjoyed to find out we have a new life on the way...due on our 5th Wedding anniversary, June 28th! Gabe and I can hardly wait to see what new little personality will join our family. I have learned that God's plans are always better than my own and that He already knows and loves this little soul inside of me. I know that ability to have children is a gift, and so I am so thankful for this opportunity we have been given. Gabe and I are ready for all the "you sure have your hands full" comments we will receive. Bring it on! We hope this won't be our last baby either;)...

We will be keeping the gender a surprise along with the name. Gabriel thinks there are "babies" in mommy's belly. Oh dear...
 I think 2013 will be a beautiful year.

I am thankful for each of you readers, who have made IHOD something I can devote my time to, and share my love of the creative world. I have some exciting things in store to share and I hope you will continue to follow along:)
Wishing you all a very HAPPY NEW YEAR and cheers to the hope 2013 brings!
Love, Anna
