It's easy to take for granted how amazing my little family of three ( we include Clyde) is. Nick and I live such a full and happy life and often these days, I have to remind myself of just that. As we get closer and closer to growing our family we have to tell ourselves that while when our time comes it WILL be amazing, NOW is amazing too. Soon it won't just be us, coming and going as we please, sleeping in, grabbing last minute drinks with friends, lazy mornings at coffee shops, camping trips in the mountains, etc, will be rare experiences that we now consider part of our everyday lives. It's hard though. While we are both so aware of all the goodness in our lives, waiting for that next chapter to begin can be such a challenge some days. Patience is something I've never been very good at and in this situation, when it's so essential, it's nice to feel so at ease with where life has taken us thus far. All we can do now is enjoy the heck out of it and wait our turn.
