A year ago today my husband and I were living in Bolivia. We had been there for two months with four more to go. We were in a weird place. Phillip and I both desperately wanted to start a family. It's what we always dreamed of, but exactly one year ago I found myself somewhere new. Living in a foreign country and knowing that it wasn't the right time to add a little one to our family my hubby for the first time wanted to wait. It was very short lived but it absolutely killed me. It was at that moment that I started this blog. I didn't say a word about wanting to write a blog to him and I only gave myself about 2 minutes to think it over before heading over to the computer, going on to blogspot.com and picking a name for my new blog. I had no idea where it would lead, how long it would last or if anyone would ever read it.
It's so crazy to me to think that a year has gone by since I wrote this post. When I wrote it my husband and I had the convo that we've had many times before that started something like this, "maybe this time next year". We discussed the possibility of being pregnant or maybe even having a baby already. But in my mind it was all wishful thinking. We had tried and tried again with no success and my biggest fear was when we started trying again it would never happen. Well here we are. One year later with our lovely, sweet son in our arms. Wow. I mean WOW!
It's March 22, 2012 and we are no longer waiting for lovely. This is the greatest blessing we could ever ask for.
