Hi dear friends :)
sorry for my absence on TL, I was really busy moving into a new apartment. We are doing quite fine (5 and 1/2 months pregnant), thanks for all your lovely words and wishes. I can tell you now that our baby will be a girl :) I am very happy these days, it is really wonderful to become a mother.

My best wishes to all of you.

Hello Ioana,

It's an excellent photo to notice that your baby will be a girl! The sunflower represents the light of a new life that will arrive brief and also the new life that you and your husband will go to start when the little girl finally to arrive.

To Chris

Hi Chris ...
hi man ...
You'll be living with two woman under the same roof.
Mark my words : the youngest will tell you
how " cool " you are, what colours do fit together, ...
Try to keep in shape : you're a roll model now for later ;-)
Experientia docet : my first was Annick now almost 15.

Bonjour Ioana,
Quelle manière délicate et adorable de nous faire partager ta grossesse ! ;)Encore toutes mes félicitations pour cette petite fille à venir et beaucoup de bonheur à 3 ! :)


Hello Ioana !

I have to apologize too, since I am too often away from TL this year. Looking at your gallery makes me feel guilty , to skip so many great posts, and for not posting critiques as often as your photos deserve to be recognized. Fortunately , they are not unoticed by many members .

What a delightful idea for this special announcement . Colorful, and well composed as usual.

I wish you all the best for the coming weeks . Take it easy.

PS. Do me a favor write me your new psotal address ( through my intro page )By the way , I love your new avatar .

Congratulations , although quite belated!!
you must be getting nearer the deadline now. don't tire yourself out too much: now it's not the time ....
Take care and enjoy every minute of it
we are all with you wishing noly the veery best

damn it would have been great if it weren't for that dark efect at the edges(or sharp:-?)..and the colors are too simple. I don;t like that the flower it's cropped. But the idea it's cute :)
