Hi World

I had cycled about 15km on September 20th. At the train station that evening, waiting for Jim to arrive, my water broke. 22 September, at 12.13pm our daughter Tara was born.Of course she is more beautiful than any view I’ve seen so far…We’re looking forward to sharing many more adventures with you! All we need is…
