Last weekend Charlie and I took a quick weekend getaway with the kiddos to celebrate our 6th wedding anniversary. It’s incredible to think that we decided 5 years ago (on our first anniversary) to try to start a family, struggled & worried for nearly 2 years that it would never happen, and then 3 years ago I was pregnant with Stella on our anniversary, last year I was pregnant with Harvey on our anniversary, and now 10+ years after our first date together, we have this… our family.
From the outside it looks so easy and perfectly planned. One girl, one boy, born almost exactly 2 years apart – just like so many people out there envision for their life plan. Ha! It’s a good lesson to not judge a book (or a family) by its cover.
I know I say this all the time, but I mean it from the bottom of my heart. We are so blessed.
