Wonderful news, dear KnitFreedom readers! It's been a secret until now, but I'm pregnant! We are due on August 12th, and I will be going on maternity leave starting the day of this post. Candy, our lovely Customer Happiness Guru, will be here to help you.

We’re Pregnant!

Wonderful news, dear KnitFreedom readers! It’s been a secret until now, but for the last nine months that I’ve been working on KnitFreedom and updating the site for you, I’ve been pregnant.

This will be my husband’s (yes, I got married, too!) and my first child, and we are expecting him or her any day now. Our official due date is August 12, 2019.

I will be going on maternity leave starting the day of this post, and I won’t be answering knitting questions in the forum, by email, or Facebook until I come back. Not to worry, however. Candy, our lovely Customer Happiness Guru, will be attending to your customer service questions 24/7. She will also be able to get ahold of me for any extra-difficult customer service questions.

I expect to be wholly focused on our new baby for at least three months. At the same time, I have been gathering my filming equipment down here in Mexico so that when I’ve recovered, I’ll be able to start filming new videos for you.

About the Pregnancy

We don’t know the sex of the baby! It is going to be a surprise. We are planning a water birth. Being pregnant in summer in Mexico has been wonderful! And I’m so glad it’s almost over.

About Our Marriage

Juan Carlos Garcia Murillo, from La Peñita, Nayarit, Mexico, and I got married in a tiny civil ceremony on July 22, 2019, after dating for exactly three years. Yes, we got married on our anniversary! The photos from today’s post are from our wedding in San Pancho, Nayarit, Mexico.
