Me & Katy Perry both

In the early hours of Saturday morning, after 31 hours of sheer insanity with more than it's share of unwanted trauma, I kissed a girl.

And I liked it.

Sanne on the other hand, wasn't as impressed.

What are her stats? I've been on pins and needles and stalking your blog daily for news of her. Although I swore it was a "him" haha
And could you please phonetically write her name so I know I'm saying it correctly?

Magnificent!!! Congrats to all of you- finally together. I wish you all the happiness a new parent can have- which includes, but is not limited to: sleepless nights, numb arms from holding a baby 27 hours a day, the inability to speak in anything but a lilting, high-pitched voice and a smile that is impossible to wipe off of your exhausted face. :)
