As I mentioned in an earlier post to kick off this year, we have decided that 2011 is the year that Matt and I try to start our own family!
Even though it is about 6 months before we start trying, I am already filled with questions!
The most requiring question that I think about/feel is: am I really ready? I know that I am, and the way that Matt talks about it and gets excited about things, I know he is as well, but there are times when I still feel too young! Times when I feel like I am just a big kid playing house. There are days when I feel like I am completely confident and old enough to bring another human into the world, but on other days I feel like 26 (or 27) is still so young.
I focus on my gut feeling, the one that I think is the one that is pointing my in the right direction, and my gut is screaming that this is the year!
I realize that life is going to completely change when we have kids, but I am certain that so many of those changes are going to be ones that complete us and our lives for the better. And the good changes are going to be so good that they are going to blow the bad ones right out of the water!
I know it’s late, buuuut…
since I just figured out how to get pictures off the new camera, I wanted to share a few from New Year’s Eve!!
Me and the ladies!
Matt and I with some New Year’s bubbly!
Who says that girls want all the attention??
Tooting my own horn (haha)!!
It was a great first celebration of 2011…full of glitter, bubbly, good friends, and fun!
Here’s to 2011…
This is a year for:
~ Watching my BFFF get married (and everything that goes with it)!
~ Watching one of my best friends move away…again!
~ Traveling: Vegas, Spain, Italy, France, Mexico
~ Putting family drama to rest (or at least out of mind)
~ Dealing with stress is a positive way
~ Being the best wife, sister, daughter, friend, teacher I can possibly be
and most importantly and what I am most excited for,
this is the year for starting our own family!
I am making an early resolution to leave all family drama in 2010. I do not want to put up with all of the unnecessary drama that has plagued our life this past year. It is unfair and rediculus.
So, 2011, I am starting fresh. I am leaving the problems and the people that are unhealthy for our life in 2010.
A new year. A new mentality. And a
hopefully a better life!
