Baby on the Brain

I've got baby on the brain. 

And for good reason, too...

Because I have a baby in my belly. 

And this time I'm not talking about a food baby either. 

There's a tiny baby bump there, I promise. 

Now that the proverbial cat is out of the bag within my own social circle, I don't have a problem sharing the big news with the interwebs - we are happily expecting our very own little creature! Of course we were planning to wait juuuust a smidgen longer, but sometimes your plan isn't the plan that is written in the stars. So we're starting a new chapter with this new grand adventure and it's no longer my biological clock that's ticking, but the countdown clock instead. With a mere 3 months to go, we still have a lot to do, but this little one is going to make a big entrance whether we're ready or not!

366 Days Recaptured

It's difficult to believe that a year with my love has already passed. I guess that old, cliché adage is true, "Time flies when you're having fun." At times it feels like it's only been a few months and other times I'm comforted by the feeling that it seems like it's been this way forever. I'm looking forward to all of the fun that will inevitably be in store for us as we make our way forward, but first, a reflection of our last year.

The last 366 days have turned out to be a leap year filled with welcomed surprises. Day one started off with an apology, which led to a confession that was followed by a declaration and was finally sealed with a kiss.

So far, it's been a crazy, pinch-me-I'm-dreaming kind of adventure and I wouldn't have it any other way. 

We've been wine tasting in Napa with friends, watched the super moon eclipse from the front lawn, and shared our first bottle of wine over a delicious home cooked meal that we made together. We've been to festivals, spent the holidays together with our families, and welcomed in the New Year with a well-deserved kiss. 

We've been to parties, celebrated family birthdays, and indulged in a little pampering. We've spent endless hours treasure hunting, took a whirlwind weekend road trip for my birthday (all a surprise and planned by him), and experienced quite an eventful trip to Reno in the Tesla.

We've been camping, let the sounds of music soothe our souls at concerts, and enjoyed a little VIP treatment along the way. We've explored new towns, taken countless trips to the coast, and we are currently waiting in anticipation to leave on our tropical vacation.

We've been making up for lost time. We've been making each and every moment count. We've been living our lives to the fullest and loving each other unconditionally along the way. Our love for each other is never-ending and there is no doubt it will stand the test of time. Nothing and no one will stand in our way because the bond of our love cannot be broken.
