Celebrating two wild years and a half-way mark to our newest and boldest adventure together. We thought this would be in our path years from now, but this unexpected surprise has done nothing but remind us of how we usually roll--without a plan.
Right before Adam and I started officially dating, we had one specific conversation that stood out to each of us. It started with that one question we often get after 30, “do you want kids?” We then started to unpack personal visions we hadn’t shared with anyone. These visions were eerily identical. The setting and atmosphere were the same. The perspective, the temperature, and the third little one in the picture were uncannily the same. I know it sounds strange. It was really, really unnerving. And also really, really powerful. As we quickly fell for each other it was very clear to us both, unlike any other relationship that we wanted to one day, far from now, have a baby together. We genuinely have enjoyed talking about it and joking about it. We even had a nickname for this little nugget within months of dating. We were even open about it to friends and family that we felt like it was a part of our long-term path together. I felt (and still feel!) like adding more of Adam into this world would seriously be an honor and a privilege. It wasn’t even about having a baby, holding a baby, or the exciting opportunity to raise a child. It was about the two of us adding to our explosive love, bringing more of it into the world, and doing all of these things together as a team.
Fast forward to two, wild years later. Our relationship has been full force. Fall hard, drop everything to overlap and just regroup when we get there. Take off in a Mini Cooper and get lost together for a few months. Leave the country a few weeks after that. Start a business together; learn our strengths and struggle with our weaknesses. Learn how each other handle these struggles while letting our love be #1.
It’s all been unpredictable, unplanned and unexpected. So we’re no longer shocked of this little nugget’s timing. Instead, we’re stoked to bring he/she along for the ride. See you in the spring little Mowgli or Mowgli-ette!
