The Summer of Us
After our failed treatment in December, we did a lot of soul searching. Our little frosty was really our last realistic chance of affording the fertility treatments we need to conceive. It was tough to make the decision to grieve the loss of adding to our family or make extreme sacrifices to pursue something that we longed for. We decided to grieve. During that time, we found out that my pain regarding the subject was too awkward or uncomfortable for everyone and it was a little disappointing. We decided then to walk a different path from the one we have been on. Instead of focusing on adding to our family and what others have to say about it and we were going to celebrate something we have that we can love and nurture and hopefully always count on: US. The four us! Me, Hubby, Oshy, and Peanut. The most important safety net of support in our life should always be us. We are going to take the time to enjoy our moments together. It is too tempting at home to do other things or little projects and the days just slip away. Beginning in February, we started planning away for the summer of us. We are going to value our weekend time together above anything else. It was exciting and fulfilling spending our time dreaming up all the things we'll do. This week we booked our very first ever family of four trip! We are not going to visit family, no one is having a baby or getting married, it is an obligation free us only trip! It is a trip only for enjoying theme parks and indoor pools, and trying new things and jumping on hotel beds. I. Cannot. Wait.
