I was such a young bride... four long years ago

Haha just kidding, it's Euge's cousin/niece Olivia at her confirmation party...
she was one of our flower girls. Remember the clippity-clop?

Yes, it's that time of year.

Now I must reflect on being married and just how very far we've come and how old we seem to be getting. I must wax poetic on the joys of marriage and the wonder of our togetherness.


This is the beginning of a whole new part of our lives and, even more so than those moments before Dad walked me down the aisle, I feel like we are at the top of the rollercoaster. Everything is about to speed up to a million miles an hour, turn upside down and inside out. My heart will leave my body. Twice

Luckily, I'm past the nausea part.

We are really enjoying this time, before we are parents (though, I suppose we are parents already - right?) I had a super fun birthday...

Me, Patty and Margaret at B-flat for my birthday - I stayed out 'til one AM!
Seltzer and lime juice - yu-mm-mee.

Saturday, we went to the Guinness and Oyster festival - which of course made me think of Dad... Guinness and oysters are good for babies right? Gwynnie drank Guinness when she was pregnant!

I kid, I kid.

Check it, he still likes to feel me up.

Then, on Sunday, we went apartment hunting.


There is so much that is changing, that is going to change and, while I am totally excited for it, I have to admit that sometimes it seems to bend my mind inside-out. So, for right now, sometimes it's fun to just enjoy what we have right now because when these babies come it's all over.

No, I'm kidding, that's just what people tell me. I don't really believe that it will all be over.

It will just be different.

Babies like Guinness and oysters, right?

I am really enjoying watching your journey because I can relate to so much of it... enjoying what you have now while being both excited and a little bit terrified about how your life is about to change. Everything I do now is so much more special because I think I might not have time for it later. But then I'm excited about the next phase of my life. Then two minutes later I panic and think, "Oh my God. I'm the mom. Me. I'm the mom." Scary.

You continue to look adorable. Enjoy all the fun and freedom (and oysters and guinness) while you still can!!!

Ok, I know I'm a seriously late commenter...but you know my excuse...working mamahood.
Here's the thing, there are degrees of 'it's all over-ness', it's kinda true. But it really isn't a bad thing, because you can't remember what it was like pre-baby(ies)and you don't want to try to, because you wouldn't have it any other way. You're right on with enjoying your time before you don't really have any to yourself...and setting yourself up with all the necessary changes you guys are making, but don't even TRY to imagine what it's going to be like, because no matter how hard you try to imagine, you won't come close to how much in love you'll be with those babies, how much your life will change in a great way, how sometimes it's really really hard (x2), and how sometimes you'll look at Eugene and think: "i'm so much more in love with him than ever, what an amazing father and man" and sometimes you'll look at him and think: "what the f___? does he have a brain in his head?, why is he holding the baby like that, feeding the baby like that, etc?!"
