Little Ones...

In my current phase of life, I'm constantly reminded of pregnancy and babies. My most recent response to this topic is: "I currently have no desire to have kids but I'll re-evaluate this at age 32 (two more years...yikes!). I just don't want to be 60 years old with kids still in my house." If you are close to me, you've heard me say this many times. Periodically, the Lord reminds me that I'm still not ready for this adventure...will I ever be? Who knows?!

The last few days, I've been in Nebraska with my mom visiting my sisters, brother-in-law, and these little ones:

I had SO MUCH FUN hanging out with these little ones....seeing how their personalities have developed. They are such good kids! My sisters have done an amazing job raising them. Despite all of the positive things about having kids, I just don't desire the responsibility of this HUGE task. I used to think it's laziness but now I'm seeing it's not...I just desire other things. I want to be able to hang out with my husband and dogs, go on vacations, go out to eat, hang out with friends, etc. I know these things can be done with kids but we all know that those things are limited and are different with kids in the picture.
My point: visiting my awesome family this weekend has simply reminded me that I'm not ready for this committment any time soon or maybe ever. BUT, I might be ready for this life:

2 Wedded Years with my Boo, Jimmy

On Tuesday, Jimmy and I will celebrate two years of marriage! The time has flown by! Here is a pic of us on our anniversary a year ago:

I thought I would reflect briefly on some awesome things we did in our second year. First, we adopted Angel:

I LOVE this sweet girl! She has been a great pooch and a great sister to Izzie! Second, we got Zoombezi Bay season passes! So many fun memories from the water park this past summer with our family and life group friends. I can't believe Jimmy actually went on this ride:

Third, we joined Sanctuary Columbus Church. This gave us both a chance to serve in our own special ways but it keeps us connected because we share that bond of serving in our church :)

Fourth, we made our second trip to a Sandals resort! This time Ocho Rios, Jamaica:

These are just a few of the MANY, MANY, MANY  fun memories from the past year. I can't wait to see what the next year has in store for us! I love you Booski!
