My husband and I have exciting news: we are expecting a child.  The baby is due on August 20.  As a result, I will be taking maternity leave from whenever I go into labor until approximately January.  Microsoft is an amazing company to work for, providing 20 weeks of maternity leave (some of that is unpaid). 

I wanted to make this announcement well in advance so that everyone will be aware that I’ll be out for an extended period of time.  That means that I will miss out on some great conferences: devLink, the St. Louis Day of .NET, the Ann Arbor Give Camp, several regional Celebrations of Women in Computing, and possibly CodeMash

While I am out, you guys can work with my fabulous teammates:

I will be taking a break from blogging and tweeting during this time as well.  If there is anything that you need from me, please let me know well in advance of August.  I will miss you all during maternity leave!
