she's here!

the forklift guys at the warehouse thought i was a looney for taking pics and jumping up and down!
p's brother is the salt of the earth and was kind enough to put in alot of hard work and sweat (on his day off no less!) AND use of his truck, "the bruise" *THANKS DUDE* for enabling the following moment where i dramatically teared up and announced
 "this is the day i've dreamed of my whole LIFE!"
it's love at first sight!
did i mention how excited i am?!
i would've posted a pic of her out of the crate and me sitting on top but you have to trust me that getting her out of that crate and onto the ground (she's HEAVY) and up my steep yard and into the carriage house was so difficult that we all looked and felt like we'd been beaten. see, they ship them "dry" which means no fluids and therefore, undriveable - so lots of pushing and LIFTING was involved - i'm so exhausted! but happy!
more pics soon, i promise!
