Aliventures Break (While Ali Has a Baby!)



More bump photos here.

As you can probably tell from the photo above, I’ll be having a baby soon (due date is 21st February). This is our first child; my husband and I are very much looking forward to welcoming her into the world.

So I can concentrate on being a  mum, I won’t be publishing any updates on the Aliventures blog, or sending out the Aliventures newsletter, from now (January 24th) until late April.

  1. Ali,

    I am sure glad to know your baby is on the way. Three cheers for princess charming. She is sure to be a handful, but a dream come true. Best wishes and good luck. You’ll need it, to be sure, time will tell. Cheerio.

  2. Congratulations to you and your husband. Some terrible times coming up, but the good times and the great times will more than compensate 🙂

  3. I love sweet milky baby’s-breath more than anything. Best wishes to you and your husband. You are in my prayers. DHH

  4. Hello, Ali!

    I was missing your newsletters, so I decided to pass by and see what was going on… And I remembered that your baby is coming! Congratulations, again. I read now your text “What it Feels Like When Your Writing is Rejected – and How to Bounce Back”, a very cool piece (and I left my comments there…:)

    I hope you’re fine and wish you luck in this new adventure! Things will be just fine, I’m sure…:)

    All best,

    from your Brazilian friend,
