When using Google Fonts with WordPress, you should NOT use @import, nor just place the HTML in the header. Instead use a function and enqueue them.
It happened so fast. One minute we’re watching contractions on the monitor, the next we’re prepping for a c-section. In just 40 weeks and 31 minutes, Tara and I went from expecting to holding our precious little girl.
